THE RED TEN #2 Hits Select Retailers February 29 and NO ONE is SAFE!
February 10, 2012 — Newburyport, MA — Creator-owned publisher ComixTribe has announced that THE RED TEN #2 will be on the shelves of select comic shops on February 29, 2012. Following up a January launch of SCAM #1 (IGN.com’s book of the week), this is the second month in a row ComixTribe will be distributing new material directly to its growing network of retail partners.
“We’re having a lot of fun with this,” said ComixTribe publisher and THE RED TEN co-creator Tyler James. “We couldn’t have asked for a better launch for SCAM, and we’re thrilled to follow it up with the next chapter of THE RED TEN. I don’t know what the ceiling is on DIY distribution, but considering we’re shipping more books in February than we did in January, I can say with confidence that we haven’t hit it yet.”
THE RED TEN is a superhero re-telling of Agatha Christie’s classic whodunit “And Then There Were None.” The second issue, written by James and drawn by Cesar Feliciano, sees the “heroes” narrowly escape an explosion that destroyed of one of their own, only to uncover new and deadly horrors await them on the island. The standard edition features a cover by CP Wilson, III (Stuff of Legend.)
Though indie titles are often a tough sell for many retailers, ComixTribe’s partner retailers are having success with these titles. “I’ve had pull requests for both SCAM and THE RED TEN,” reports Chris Proulx of Double Midnight Comics in New Hampshire. “That’s an excellent sign!” Chris Humphries of Alpha Comics in Canada agreed, reporting “We sold out of SCAM #1 in a week, and nearly sold out of THE RED TEN.”
