AdHouse Books cancels FCHS collection

by  in Comic News Comment

Writer Vito Delsante announced this morning on Twitter that, “due to low pre-orders,” AdHouse Books won’t be publishing FCHS, the webcomic-turned-graphic novel described as “Archie meets 90210.”

The comic, by Delsante and artist Rachel Freire, debuted in December 2007 at the now-defunct Chemistry Set online collective, and caught the attention of AdHouse’s Chris Pitzer the following summer. A 128-page collection was added to the publisher’s fall 2009 schedule, and promoted online, at conventions and with a full-color Free Comic Book Day issue.

FCHS, Vol. 1, had been solicited for November release. Delsante spoke last month about the comic with Robot 6’s Tim O’Shea.
