Cemetery Dance #61: The Peter Straub Special Issue is a Deluxe Signed Limited Edition Hardcover Commemorative “Magazine” available for pre-order for two weeks only.
A lot of Cemetery Dance “super collectors” remember the special magazine hardcover Limited Editions they used to produce. Cemetery Dance took some time off from them while they were catching up on some other parts of the business, but they’ve now announced the Cemetery Dance Deluxe Signed Limited Edition Hardcover Commemorative “Magazines” are back due to popular demand — but with a great new twist!
These collectible books will be Smyth sewn and printed on the same interior paper stock as their normal signed Limited Editions so they’ll hold up better than the regular version of the magazine you see on the newsstand. This extremely affordable hardcover will also feature a full-color reproduction of the magazine’s front cover right on the binding, a beautiful special endpaper, and each copy will be signed by the editor on a unique Limitation Sheet featuring color artwork by Glenn Chadbourne created just for this special edition.
How To Order (Two Weeks Only!): In the past, Cemetery Dance sold the magazine hardcovers for a retail price of $75, but they’re offering this Cemetery Dance #61 special “magazine” Limited Edition hardcover edition for just $40 each — and they’re only offering this unique collectible for sale for the next two weeks. After that, the print run will be set in stone and no more orders will be taken.
For their high-end collectors, there is also a signed and traycased Deluxe Lettered Edition priced at $175, which they’re only selling for the next two weeks as well — or when the maximum of 52 copies are gone, whichever comes first! So Cemetery Dance might print anywhere from 1 copy to the maximum of 52!
