Day Two of Preview month features is the Xeric Grant-winning Lone Pine by Jed McGowan, which looks like your typical duo-tone indie comic but turns into a mystery set in the deep, dark woods.
In the spirit of Election Day 2010, Frank Miller has some “fun.”
Marvel held a press conference today with Senior Vice-President of Sales & Circulation David Gabriel, and VP-Executive Editors Axel Alonso and Tom Brevoort to talk about their newly announced “Point 1″ initiative. Starting in February, 11 titles will have special “.1″ issues that will serve as jumping on points for new readers. (See the end of the story for the complete list.)
These issues will all feature standalone stories that will still lay the groundwork for the next year’s plotlines. The initiative is definitely aimed at getting new readers on board, with a $2.99 cover price -– but subsequent issues, which will all ship the same month, will go back to the $3.99 price point.
