newyorkcomicconlogo

From Thursday October 9th to Sunday October 12th, New York Comic Con – one of the biggest comic conventions in the world – returns to the Javits Center in New York City.  And fans of And Then Emily Was Gone will be pleased to know that the series is set to have a big presence at the show.

ComixTribe, publisher of And Then Emily Was Gone, has taken out a massive chunk of retail space on the show floor, spanning across tables 1172 and 1271.  It’ll surely stand out as the king of the small press section for all attendees.  And in amidst the array of books available and exclusives debuting at the show, we’ll be selling issues #1-#3 of And Then Emily Was Gone.  Not only that, but we’ll be selling convention-exclusive artist’s editions of issue #1, on which you can have a custom cover drawn by the array of artists who’ll be stationed at the booth, including Alex Cormack (I Play the Bad Guy, Future Proof, Oxymoron: The Loveliest Nightmare), Joe Mulvey (Scam), Tyler James (Over) and Cesar Feliciano (The Red Ten).

If you’ve already bought And Then Emily Was Gone and are looking to get your copies signed, you’re in luck.  Travelling all the way over from Scotland, writer John Lees and artist Iain Laurie will both be in attendance at New York Comic Con!  John will be at the table most of the weekend, while Iain will be stopping by for scheduled signings.  Colorist Megan Wilson will also be in attendance and hopefully joining in for some group creative team signings, at which letterer Colin Bell will be represented by a wicker effigy.

In addition to the core creative team, you’ll also find some of our all-star array of guest cover artists in attendance at the show.  Nick Pitarra (The Manhattan Projects, The Red Wing), cover artist for And Then Emily Was Gone #2, will be in Artist Alley, table R2.  And right next to him, at table R3, you’ll find Garry Brown (The Massive, Iron Patriot, Catwoman), cover artist of And Then Emily Was Gone #3.  And back at the ComixTribe booth you’ll find Joe Mulvey, cover artist for the upcoming And Then Emily Was Gone #4.  

While you’re at the ComixTribe table, be sure to check out our whole range of comics, including all 5 issues of The Standard by Emily writer John Lees, 6 issues of The Red Ten, the first 2 issues of Epic, all 4 issues of Scam, and our irresistible deluxe hardcover graphic novels, including The Oxymoron, Scam: The Ultimate Collection and The Red Ten, Volume 1.  We’re also debuting a special convention-exclusive advance preview edition of Oxymoron: The Loveliest Nightmare #1, written by John Lees and Tyler James, and drawn by Alex Cormack.  On top of all that, we’ll have a massive selection of original art prints, and all sorts of other goodies.  ComixTribe, Booths 1172 and 1271: note it down… that’s where you’ll find Emily!

And Then Emily Was Gone #3 Released Next Week!

Emily3ALaurie

The time is nearly upon us once more!  On Wednesday 1st October,  And Then Emily Was Gone #3 is released in comic shops worldwide.  Issue #3 is our first issue to have experienced advance reorders before its date of release, as growing buzz over the first two issues has sent retailers back to the presses to get their shipment orders of this comic bumped up.  After the introduction of the first two issues, it’s with And Then Emily Was Gone #3 that things start to get seriously deranged!

And Then Emily Was Gone #3 was actually released early on ComiXology, so you can read the comic digitally now.  But for those of you who wait for print, there’s just one week to go.  To tide you over, Comic Book Resources posted up a preview of the third issue, which we’ll also share now, along with another look at that incredible 50/50 variant cover by Garry Brown, the acclaimed artist of Iron Patriot, Catwoman and The Massive. 

Are you ready to follow the fox?

Coming Soon: And Then Emily Was Gone #5!

Emily5ALaurieIt is a great day for news here at Emily HQ.  Today, one week after And Then Emily Was Gone #2 debuted worldwide to sell-out success and critical acclaim, the Diamond retailer orders for And Then Emily Was Gone #4 came out.  These numbers were particularly significant to us, as issue #4 was the first issue available for retailers to order after the first issue had been released… monthly comics, folks!  Typically, you expect a decline in sales from issue to issue in the direct sales market, so were hoping that the fall wouldn’t be too steep.  Instead, we were pleased to discover that sales for issue #4 are UP 31% from sales of #3!  That’s an incredible win, and one we’re all buzzing about!  So, thank you, retailers, for having faith in this weird little comic.

And now, it’s time to get on that merry-go-round one last time, as now pre-orders are open for the final issue in the series, And Then Emily Was Gone #5.  Currently set for a worldwide release date of November 26th, this issue will be available to order from this month’s Diamond Previews catalogue, with this order code:

Please, even if your local comic shop has stocked every other issue of the series, don’t forget to ask them about this one, make sure they’ll be stocking it.  You’re going to want to know how the story ends!  We are all immensely proud of this final chapter, with the creative team all feeling like they have saved their best work of all for this series for the last issue.  We can guarantee this will be one of the scariest things you’ll read all year!

As you can see above, Iain Laurie has outdone himself with his astounding cover for issue #5.  Possibly the best of his 5 covers.  And that’s just a taster of the horrific imagery that awaits inside.  Our 50/50 variant cover for this final issue comes from Cody Schibi, an immensely talented illustrator and artist of the upcoming comic Bullmoose.  Trust us: this guy is poised to become your new favourite artist.  You can get a look at his stunning cover below, along with the synopsis for And Then Emily Was Gone #5:
