The first issue of Matthew Rosenberg and Tyler Boss’s WHAT’S THE FURTHEST PLACE FROM HERE? has logged an incredible 95,000 preorders.
The press release follows:
Media Release — The team behind the breakout hit series 4 Kids Walk into a Bank, have reunited with a brand-new series with the first issue bringing in an impressive 95,000 copies in preorders in comic shops around the globe.
Matthew Rosenberg says “We’re blown away by the support for this book. It’s been a passion project for Tyler and myself for a long time now, so having it finally come out and seeing so many other people be excited for it has been so overwhelming.”
The world has ended. Now all that remains are gangs of children living among the ruins. But Sid believes there must be something more out there. When she disappears into the wastelands her gang will risk everything to bring her home. A story about the things that matter most- Your survival, your loved ones, and your record collection.
Artist and cocreator Tyler Boss adds “We can’t thank readers and shops enough for their belief in the book. Just really want to say a big thank you to them, and to all the people who helped us on this project. From Image comics staff to the other members of our team, it takes a village to make this kind of thing happen.”
What’s the Furthest Place From Here? is the new all-new ongoing series kicking off with a triple-sized first issue this November. Each issue also has a special deluxe version, which comes with an exclusive vinyl single ONLY available in comic shops. These singles will be pressed in limited quantities, with the lineup to be announced alongside the preorder window.
The third issue is solicited in the November dated Diamond PREVIEWS catalog and will be priced at $3.99 for one of four special variant covers, and $14.99 with an exclusive cover and the accompanying vinyl single. Previous issues have included Jawbreaker’s Blake Schwarzenbach, Joyce Manor, Screaming Females, and Worriers.
In this third issue, the gang finds a clue about a missing member’s disappearance but it’s not what they hoped for. And sometimes a cozy home, a cup of cocoa, and a slice of raccoon pie aren’t as kind as they seem. Time to fight some Grown Ups!
This month’s deluxe version comes with a 7″ pairs post-hardcore rockers Restorations with shoegazers Nothing for a Philly double bill that is every bit as satisfying as a cheesesteak, and every bit as refreshing as “wooder ice.” Check out another Restorations track in the issue one trailer here!
Variant cover artists this month include Sweeny Boo (Cover B), connecting 1 in 15 map variant by Courtney Menard, Michael Walsh (1 in 25), and finally a 1 in 50 cover by Chip Zdarsky!
