Calendar Deadlands: Dead Man’s Hand is on sale now at finer comic shops everywhere! Get all the details, including behind the scenes interviews with creators and extended previews of each story!DMH Now PromoAnd in case you’re not sure you can trust US when we tell you how awesome this book is, check out what these folks are saying…

Positively Nerdy – “Taking elements from a variety of horror and fantasy concepts including ghosts, zombies, sorcery and even some classic Universal horror, Deadlands Volume 1 Dead Man’s Hand, shoves them all into a blender and pours the results out over the down and dirty setting of the Old West.

Comics Beat “Merging fictional Western settings with familiar character types and situations, would be cliché, if not mitigated by  the elements of  Steam Punk, Magic, and Science Fiction, and mostly served up within the context of the horror genre.”

Geeks with Wives“If you want some Lovecraft in your Eastwood, grab Deadlands vol 1: Dead Man’s Hand!”

FA Comics“Deadlands is a good investment. There is something for everyone.”

Zachary Mule “Whether you’re into the RPG or not, whether you’re into weird western comics or not, you are still going to love the storytelling and the magnificent art of DEAD MAN’S HAND… don’t miss out.”

Deadlands: Dead Man’s Hand Q&A

We’ve gotten some questions on the first volume of Deadlands: Dead Man’s Hand in terms of the direct market edition from IDW, so we wanted to take a few minutes to point out some particulars you may have missed.

What exactly does this edition include?

It includes the main features of the original four one-shots Visionary published through Image Comics. It also includes the bonus sketchbook and gaming content, and the short story “What a Man’s Gotta Do?” we published on our web-comic portal. It also has a NEW, never before published short story from Deadlands creator, Shane Hensley, and an exclusive teaser chapter from Ghostwalkers, the first Deadlands novel, by New York Times best-selling author, Jonathan Maberry.

I have the Collector’s Convention Exclusive Edition, how is this version different?

This edition is full-sized, standard trade, whereas the Convention edition was digest-sized. This edition also has Shane’s short story and the novel teaser exclusive, neither of which were done when the previous edition was published.

What happened to THE KID, why is he not included in the collection?

We have definite plans for The Kid, which includes more stories with him as he turned out to be one of our more popular debuts. Given that, we thought it would make more sense to hold off on his origin, and include that in the first collection dedicated to his tale. We hope to have more details on his return by the time Dead Man’s Hand hits stores in March.

Why this BIG push on pre-orders?

One of the things we heard A LOT with the one-shots, was folks unable to find them in their local stores. Simply put, retailers have to order a lot of books EVERY month, and invest a lot in what books they stock. So, a lot of titles they aren’t sure they can sell, they won’t stock heavy, or sometimes, won’t even order period. We get that.

So, by pushing pre-orders, we want to make life easier for our retailers, by encouraging folks to let them know in advance, so they can order our titles KNOWING they will sell. It also makes life easier on our fans, who can then rest assured they won’t miss out.

Got OTHER questions? Contact Us.
