A sold out first issue, a bunch of reviews, and the New York Comic Con!

So the book came out last week and seems to have done pretty darn well! I found it at 3 different local Newbury Comic shops, including downtown Boston, which is about as cool as could be in my mind.

Reports are coming in of the book being sold out in many locations and tough to find, with some crazy people already buying them on eBay for as much as $30-40!


A quick reminder that Farlaine the Goblin will be set up at the New York Comic Con next week, 8 days away, in booth 1261 in the Small Press area. We'll have copies of Books 1, 2, and a super sneak peek of 3! We'll also have 11x17 prints and even exclusive mini-prints!

Here's where to find us:

And finally, a bunch of different reviews started popping up after the release:

Podcast Review on positivelynerdy.com.
These guys do two reviews per month and target 13 total comics - including Farlaine the Goblin #1! This is pretty cool since the other books included are things like Saga, Spider-Man, Wolverine, Mouse Guard, and Star Trek...so great company!
The Farlaine comments start around 5:45 minutes and last until 9:10. You can listen to the review here:
