Ed Piskor’s Red Room # 1 has been Fantagraphics’ best-selling comic for years – Check out a preview here (Exclusive)
red room Issue 1, next week’s first issue of Ed Piskor’s horror anthology series, has become the best-selling periodical-style comic book published by Fantagraphics in 20 years, according to the publisher. The issue is still available for pre-order on the Fantagraphics site, which also suggests that in addition to being a huge seller for the publisher, they had great confidence in Piskor’s ability to perform at or near this level. of it. Considered a premium publisher, Fantagraphics might not immediately seem like the place to go for periodic horror … but according to Piskor himself, the book is so “hardcore” that it felt like Fantagraphics was one of the only major publishers who could manage it.
In red room, Criminals Live Stream Murders to the Dark Web for Fun and Profit. The series will be told through a series of interconnected and independent stories, with an emphasis on unsavory characters who lurk in the most grotesque corners of cyberspace. The murders are a mystery, the victims unknown. Thanks to the anonymous dark web and almost nowhere to be found cryptocurrency, business is booming and the number of viewers continues to grow.
“I describe red room like a classic EC horror comic or episode of Black mirror except all of the stories I tell exist in the same universe, even though each issue is pretty much stand-alone, “Piskor told ComicBook.” Just read the cover of issue 1 to find out if comic is for you. or not . It’s pretty hardcore, which makes Fantagraphics the best editor of the material. I would be afraid other ads would try to sugarcoat me. It’s really impressive to see how retailers stand behind this comic in different ways, from investing in their own covers, stocking the variants / incentive covers, working with me individually to create value. for their clients, and many other key pieces that have made red room a hit out of the gate. Fantagraphics informed me that Red Room is a record holder for them, but also said that they are selling the FCBD comics more. Luckily I have an original FCBD comic coming out this August with all new material unique to this edition and I will try to get the word out enough to make this comic a record holder too! “
Getting the word out has been easier for Piskor than it has been for many creators. It’s not just the award-winning spirit behind X-Men: Grand Design; he is also co-host of the popular Kayfabe comic Podcast.
“red room The # 1 has been the best-selling Fantagraphics comic for over two decades, and arguably our best-selling ever, “Fantagraphics associate editor Eric Reynolds told ComicBook.” Retailer and fan support has been amazing. Although not for the faint of heart, red room is a pure comic book escape like only Ed Piskor can deliver – he and Fantagraphics are one hell of a team. “
