In a special push to celebrate Local Comic Shop Day on November 28th, writer Kelly Sue DeConnick, artist Valentine De Landro, and Image Comics have partnered with ComicsPRO, a retail association comprised of comic book shops, to release a special limited hardcover edition of Bitch Planet‘s first volume.
The dystopian series, which focuses on a group of women imprisoned off-world for being “noncompliant” towards men, made a huge splash when it debuted at the end of 2014. It sparked the #Noncompliant movement and recently wrapped its first arc.
Local Comic Shop Day is a brand new event that coincides with Small Business Saturday, two days after Thanksgiving and one day after Black Friday. According to the Image press release, “participating retailers will have exclusive, and in some cases, limited items debuting from supporting publishers.”
This special hardcover edition of Bitch Planet features cover art by artist Filipe Andrade and is limited to 750 copies, so if you want one you might as well start lining up in front of your local store now…
If you’re a retailer, you can still register to participate in Local Comic Shop Day until October 1st.
