The publisher Sitcomics has announced its “Class of 2019” Binge Books, triple-sized comics set to release July 31. Each Binge Book is 64 pages long for only $3.99 and the three titles to be released this summer are Blue Baron #3, Startup #3, and Headhunter #1.
Founded by former Seinfeld writer Darin Henry, the company isn’t trying to raise sales through gimmicks or variants.
“Slapping multiple different covers on the same printed story does nothing to increase readership. If anything, the practice confuses and discourages new readers. Our Variant Value program means that even though each copy of The Blue Baron Binge Book #3 will have the same image on its front cover, everyone who buys it in print will still get to enjoy three all-new Ron Frenz & Sal Buscema covers for the price of one.”
