Official Press Release
March 10, 2005, Runnemede, NJ - Dynamic Forces and Top Cow Productions today announced that the demand for new collections of previously exclusive DF Comics has exceeded available supply. Once the existing orders are sold out, to accommodate the open orders, the two companies will be filling orders with extremely limited line art edition covers of the collections featuring Jae Lee's stunning art!
"These comics feature some great work by top tier creators - Mark Millar, Paul Jenkins, Jae Lee, Geoff Johns, Mark Texeira, David Wohl and upcoming superstar Billy Tan... Plus we were very lucky enough to have Jae draw these last two covers before he signed his Marvel exclusive, and we know retailers and fans will love to see Jae's pure black and white art!" stated an excited Nick Barrucci, President of Dynamic Forces. "We had stgrong sales when we released them as DF exclusive one-shots a few years ago, but these "two-in-one" collections are really resonating with the fans and we need to get more into production to meet the demand."
Top Cow's President Matt Hawkins added: "Top Cow continues its longstanding relationship with Dynamic Forces and we appreciate Nick Barrucci and his crew using some of their inventory to fill our backorders on these two books. Since these limited books normally retail at a larger dollar amount, DF is going out of their way to be supportive of our retailers and fans by shipping these books as reorders for the regular MSRP of just $2.99."
With the Top Cow run of these books out of print, DF will be adding to their run to meet the demand. And for the fans who ordered the DF Limited editions, fans can now be happy in the knowledge that they will get the limited edition covers, but with a foil edition for these high end DF marquee editions! The items are scheduled to ship this month
