Alabaster: Wolves #1 hits stores in just a few days. Do we have any fans of the short stories on the boards? Any Caitlin R. Kiernan fans?

I'm extremely excited about the launch of this series and urge anyone who's a fan of monsters, dark fantasy, and kick-azz female characters to check it out.

These books are so popular with a young woman I'm friends with that I'm exctied about the Dark Horse comic. I don't know that I'll run out and read the book, but I'm in for the comic series. Any word on whether it will be transformed into an ongoing or whether its intended to be a series of mini series or what?

I attended a chat with the creators a couple of weeks ago. There is definitely more stuff planned beyond "Wolves," but that will solely depend on how well the series does in the marketplace. If all goes well, I suspect we'll get a series of min-series in the Hellboy mold.

Here's a nice little article. Rachel Edidin, the series editor, talks about Dancy Flammarion, the main character in Alabaster: Wolves.

I thought I was excited before I looked at the Preview. This book is going to be awesome. I don't know if a Dark Horse book can get the heat that this title deserves, but I'll be shocked if it doesn't get a lot of attention this week. It's a shame that it's hitting the shelves the same week as America's Got Powers, Secret, The Secret Service and Saga 2. I wish they would have released it on a week where there weren't a number of other hot books hitting the shelves. Regardless, I think this one is going to be a smash hit.

I really hope it does well with pre-orders, and I genuinely think it will. It might not sell out at stores on release day like some of the Image offerings, but I predict a slow burn throughout the next few weeks.

My LCS got shorted on my order .. I'm only getting one out of five of the books I ordered and had to place a couple orders for extra copies through internet comic stores to make sure I got a couple copies and a copy of the incentive variant. This book may be a lot hotter than any of us guessed. It is a bad week for this book to be released though. There are 2 big image 1's (America's Got Powers and Secret) being released and its also the same week that Saga 2 and Thief of Thieves 3 hit the shelves.

Interesting. I know DCBS wouldn't take any additional orders after the initial cutoff date. I pre-ordered a healthy amount, so I'm good.
