INCREDIBLE CON 2019 IDW UY#1 Variant

Postby maichan » Thu Jul 25, 2019 12:53 +0000

Is anyone planning on attending Incredible Con?
Convention info: http://www.incrediblecon.com/
SEPT 21-22, 2019 | CHARLESTON AREA CONVENTION CENTER | CHARLESTON, SC

The reason I'm asking is because the last remaining IDW Usagi Yojimbo #1 variant is associated with the Con, but I don't think any info has been made available yet as to how or where the issue can be purchased (or how much it will cost).

If it winds up being for sale at the con, can someone purchase some copies? Of course if the book goes for sale online, I can probably order it directly then. But I at least want to inquire now to get a jump on things and maybe get some information flowing.

If anyone finds out any further info, please share it here.

And, since maichan and I already chatted about it, I thought I'd share here as well that the currently non-existent Nashville Comic Con is saying they will also have this cover available through their upcoming Kickstarter and on their website (currently under construction).. It appears to be the same people that are running Incredible Con, as the two Facebook pages shared almost the exact same post about SDCC this past weekend.

We'll be sure to let the Dojo know if/when they go on sale. I don't think I'll be doing a group buy since I'll probably have mailed out most or all the comics by the time these go on sale and the group buy only makes sense if I'm saving people money by spreading shipping costs out over multiple different covers. If they suddenly go on sale in the next few days, I may open up a group buy.

Thanks for expanding on this topic for us Jabba.

I messaged Incredible Con via FB Messenger and received a prompt reply from them advising me that "it will be available through Nashville Comic Con" - to which I sent a message and received what I assume was an auto reply that said, "Hi We're away at the moment but please leave a message and we'll get back as soon as we can!"

If you check the link in Jabba's post, that should take you to the Nashville Comic Con entry for the exclusive comic, and the last paragraph reads,

"We've got some details a little later today on how you can get yours but if you are interested you can message the Nashville Comicon page and we'll put your name down to send you a link when it's live."

That was dated July 18, but I haven't found anything that might update that. I also left a few comments (one just now) in the topic, but they haven't been acknowledged in any way.

The books were printed, we know at least one has been spotted, so you'd think they would be eager to get these out... timing was perfect but if they wait too long, interest from collectors in general may diminish over time... I know us hardcore UY fans will be interested no matter how long it takes.

The guy who drew that picture, Linh Nguyen, did a job so good, you'd swear the artist was Stan Sakai himself!

I sent another Facebook Message to Nashville Comic Con over the weekend, and I received a reply this time:

Hi Michael,
We’ve notes your name. We’ll be making an announcement soon just waiting on a contract back before we can share more


So I guess that means I'm on their mailing list. As soon as I hear some more I will post it here and share on the Dojo Facebook page ASAP.

I have done the same and received the same message. AT least they are consistent.

Nope, no other info. That's a direct quote of the message I received.

Well, if it’s in Nashville, I’m going to guess central mountain time. So us on the USA west coast, set your reminders for 8 am. :lol:

Peace, maka

I just backed this to complete my last Usagi 1 cover. Surely the May shipment date must be a typo as they are charging us for the book on November 8th.
