The Circle #1 Sells Out At Diamond

Action Lab Danger Zone‘s The Circle # 1 has sold out at Diamond! This is always great hear especially for indie titles.

This is some fantastic news. Like I have been saying for a while the best comics being made today are from quality indie publishers, not Marvel and DC. This accomplishment is just one example of many that I hope we will see in 2017. Readers tastes are changing, and they are starting to prove that with their purchase power. It’s important to support comics, I know it’s easy to download a  pirated copy or read on these free comic book sites, but that does not help creators continue to make comics or the comic shop to sell them to you. Comics have tight profit margins for everyone involved (except Diamond) pirating comics does not always mean if someone likes it they will actually support it financially. A tiny percentage of pirates actually do that.

I get it times are/can be tuff and comics are expensive these days. I would just ask you do your best to support comics, just please support publishers and creators who are giving the best value for your dollar and not publishers and creators who do the opposite.

The Circle revolves around a boy named Christian, a recent transplant to the sleepy coastal town of Shell Bay. What begins as playful shenanigans with “the weird kids” turns deadly dark as satanic spells unleash a darkness that can only be stopped by the ritualistic death of his “Circle” of friends.

Writer Damon Clark was clearly surprised, saying “When I first heard issue #1 sold out, I thought there was no way this could be true. What kind of joke is this, am I being Punked? Ashton? Seriously, thanks to anyone that bought the book and thanks to Action Lab for putting it out there. I hope you enjoyed #1, ’cause that was only the introduction, it only gets crazier from there.”

Action Lab and ComiXology are offering the first issue for $0.99. “We hope that the $0.99 issue will drive fans into the stores to continue reading the series. Damon and Alyzia are crafting a truly unique story that will haunt you for years to come,” said President of Development Dave Dwonch. The $0.99 price will run until the end of January.
