Cemetery Dance Publications has announced that they’ve been chosen as the official distributor for IDW Publishing’s new line of signed Limited Edition hardcovers. These Limited Edition books have low print runs (just 350 for this first title), high production values (slipcases, full color artwork/printing throughout), great contributors (most of whom are signing the books), and and incredible low prices for this sort of publication.
The first book in this line is the anthology, Zombies vs. Robots: This Means War!, which is set in the world of the ZVR comic. Collectors who snag a copy of this book through the Cemetery Dance online store will be the first collectors notified about future Limited Editions we’re distributing for IDW, so don’t wait because these are not going to last long with these very low print runs, high production values, and IDW’s rabid fan base!
