Strangetales 01 Secondprintingvarianr
We don’t run every press release we get, but once in a while one tickles us, such as the announcement that STRANGE TALES #1, the indie-anthology from Marvel, has gone back to press Whatever the realities of these sell-outs, it’s cool that an alt.comix book is getting the treatment. The new printing will have a B&W version of the Paul Pope cover. Contributors include PAUL POPE, PETER BAGGE, MOLLY CRABAPPLE, JOHN LEAVITT, JUNKO MIZUNO, DASH SHAW, JAMES KOCHALKA, JOHNNY RYAN, MICHAEL KUPPERMAN, NICK BERTOZZI, NICHOLAS GUREWICH & JASON

  1. I especially loved the Japanese Spidertown strip. (Mizuno?) It was imaginative and creepy/charming all at the same time.

  2. I enjoyed this collection very much, but I feel this was a project that may have been better suited as a web or downloadable comic. Maybe a missed opportunity from Marvel.

    I think the fact that it has gone into a second printing kind of throws a wrench in that argument.

    I’m just psyched that its doing so well. I hope it can turn at least a few people onto the artists’ other work.

  4. Hopefully this will pave the way for more offbeat comics from Marvel. People obviously wanted something lighter to offset the overly brooding Dark Reign crap.

    This was a MAX title and Marvel does not overprint MAX titles so a sell out is guaranteed for this print-to-order title. But regardless, nice to see a second printing in case anyone missed it.
