Sacrifice Returns to the New Arrivals Rack

Sam Humphries and Dalton Rose‘s amazing SACRIFICE, the mind-warping tale time travel, epileptic fits, Aztec warriors and Joy Division, returns to Isotope!

Despite garnering some pretty amazing press this self published and micro-distributed title has always been designed to be severely limited in numbers and is only available at in 20-some-odd stores worldwide. And of course, you know Isotope has always been ground-zero for all things Sam Humphries!

The rule with these type of books is “grab ‘em when you see ‘em”… and today’s the day!

The CBGB Comic Gets Even Better

As a comic store retailer it’s my job to distill down those special somethings that make people excited to leave the comfort of their easy chairs to venture out into the world and come into my store. I’ve designed my entire business around the concept of making the Isotope into something much more than just a place to purchase goods. It’s in the store’s DNA, in the culture of people, and in everything we do. I think the best brick-and-mortar retail establishments are all about creating awesome experiences and crafting wonderful memories. And I’m always excited to see other folks in the comic industry who are on the same page as I am.

So when longtime Isotope amigos Sam Humphries and Rob G wrote to me asking if we would like to be one of the few select retailers to get to give away their limited edition show poster prints for folks who buy the first issue of the upcoming CBGB comic? You know I smiled! Not only were our pals pretty much on the exact same wave-length as me, but I actually may have been the person who taught Rob G that double-devil salute (which I first saw a guy holding high at a Danzig show years ago and you can see me doing the same in the pit in this here Gwar video).

Anyway, my staff and I were already pretty excited about the release of the four issue CBGB comic already… with stories from Jamie Hernandez, Kieron Gillen, Chuck BB, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Sam Humphries, Rob G, and the rather awesome Scissor Sisters songstress Ana Matronic? How could we not be?!
