Chapel Hill Comics is proud to announce that as part of our 10th/35th anniversary celebration, we will offer an exclusive CHC cover to the new Ghostface Killah comic, 12 Reasons to Die, as well as a super-limited variant signed by Ghostface.
UPDATE: MAY 8, 2013: There is also a Ghost Variant for 12 Reasons, which was top secret until it shipped! We have it, and the Chapel Hill Comics cover available in the shop, and at our webstore!
Here’s the press release, in which our esteemed boss is quoted:
Black Mask Studios, RZA, and Ghostface Killah are partnering with local comic shops along Ghost’s upcoming tour route to release ‘Tour Variant’ editions of the 12 REASONS TO DIE comic. The Tour Variant edition will feature an exclusive cover that ties in directly with the visuals of the album, and each store’s allotment of books will be branded with the store’s logo.
Each store will also receive a small number of ‘Ticket Variants.’ Limited to a pressing of only 150 copies, the Ticket Variant is autographed by Ghostface and gets the owner of the comic into Ghost’s local concert for free.
12 REASONS TO DIE hits stores on May 8th.
“There’s already a huge crossover between the worlds of comics and hip-hop, and I’m excited to be a part of the Tour Variant program. It should be a great opportunity to introduce hip-hop heads who might be new to comics to all the great storytelling we have to offer as a medium,” said Andrew Neal, owner of Chapel Hill Comics.
“Working with Black Mask means we’re supported by people who are actively trying to put our books in front of new readers, get new people in comic shops, and make people who would never step into comic shops find our stuff. It’s especially great to be doing the limited tour variants and the street team promotions for our book. The hip-hop community is both underappreciated and underrepresented by comic companies and it’s nice to be working with Black Mask to change that,” said 12 REASONS TO DIE writer Matthew Rosenberg.
All this stuff will go on Sale on Wednesday, May 8 at Chapel Hill Comics! For folks who want to order copies, here’s the link to our web store!
