My distributor has sent out notice but is not taking any orders yet. Not sure how I'll be ordering this.

I'll most likely just buy a box, or two of this like I did with the first series. Really is going to depend on what inserts it has to get me to buy more than that.

This set will be popular covers and will be in color. That should help the set be a little more attractive.

quote:
Contents Summary:
72-Card Base Set
Something To Fear Chase Set (2:24)
Quotable Chase Set (2:24)
Hand-Drawn Sketch Cards (1:24)
Autograph Cards from Comic Creators
Key Selling Points:
• Follow up to the sold out set released in 2012.
• 72-card base set features 4-color art of fan favorite covers!
• Something To Fear chase set covers the story arc surrounding the 100th issue released in 2012.
• Quotable chase set features some of the best lines from the comics.
• 1 of 1, hand-drawn original sketches included, 1 in every 24 packs.
• Autographs from the comic creators (signers still to be confirmed)


And there will be a binder, although there is no mention of anything special inside.

Ed

I know I'm in one of my moods tonight, but I'm going to say it anyway.

Wow! Autographs from creators. I'm not saying that because I have autographs and sketches from the creators. I'm saying it, because there's what, three of them.

They're so busy, I'm sure it's too early to tell who and how many cards will be signed. It just cracked me up a little. Wink

Thanks Ed for the info.

Ed...not sure if it is a recent update or not but it seems like there are 2 binders...a limited version and a Diamond Previews version that has 9 extra cards if I read it right...

"Binder: In addition to the limited binder, there is a Diamond Previews exclusive binder available, which contains printings of nine exclusive sketch cards, the originals are randomly inserted into the binders."

This is info that would have been nice 2-3 months ago when it was offered in Previews. The order form doesn't say anything about it being exclusive, so I didn't bother reading the fine print when at my LCS...it may not even be there anyways.

When and where was this announced?

Did I read this right? Sketch cards are 1 in 3 boxes. Maybe 5 per case. Really?!?!

That must be retail boxes.

FYI -- A slight revision to the original story. The retail version of The Walking Dead Comic Book Series 2 cards will be available at select Walmart stores, not Target stores as originally stated in today's piece. The story has been revised.
