Official Press Release
San Diego, CA. September 8, 2004. The 2004 Diamond Retail Summit in Baltimore is going to be THE place to be Tuesday, September 14th. On that day, IDW Publishing will be giving away a special Metal Gear Solid #1 Retailer Summit Edition to attending retailers.
This book, based on the super-hot Konami video game, will be strictly limited to 1000 copies. The variant cover includes different art from the regular edition and has a foil-stamped cover.
This is IDW Publishing's way of saying thanks to all the retailers that made Metal Gear Solid's first printing, in stores on September 22, 2004, a quick and complete sell-out. Ted Adams and Beau Smith will be on hand to give away this ultra-rare edition to the attending retailers.
