Binge Books has announced a new distribution deal with Diamond Comics Distributors that will bring the first title from their Sitcomics imprint to comic shops. Super ‘Suckers, which has previously only been available digitally and in print from select retailers, will now be available to order to all Diamond account holders, and will arrive in stores in September. The series is written by sitcom writer Darin Henry, with art by Jeff Shultz and Glenn Whitmore, and letters by Marshall Dillon.
College students Jess and Kelly catch a rare STD called “vampire” just as a sexy but deadly vampire slayer hits town! To stay alive, they must figure out what vampires do out of the shadows with help from their new “suck buddy” Stewart, and Vera, the exhibitionist roommate from hell!
The new print edition of Super ‘Suckers #1 will feature a new cover by Shultz, seen above, an homage to the cover to the album Destroyer by KISS. Along with the main story, in keeping with the Sitcomics imprint’s slogan of being “TV you read,” the issue will also include “Sit-Commercials” with art by Jason Yungbluth, Renee Reeser Zelnick, and Lonnie Millsap. Each copy of the issue will also be individually numbered, information that Arizona retailer Samurai Comics will use to hold a raffle to give away original art from the book.
Super ‘Suckers will be the second Binge Books comic to be available to order through Diamond Comics Distributors. The first issue of The Heroes Union, by Roger Stern, Ron Frenz, and Sal Buscema, is scheduled to ship from the distributor early next month. That series features a team-up of multiple characters from the Sitcomics stable, including Blue Baron and Startup, both of whom have their own solo titles available to read digitally or in print from select retailers. Whether those books will also make their way to being orderable through Diamond has yet to be announced.
Super ‘Suckers #1 is available to order via Diamond Comics now using item code JUL211449. The 68-page issue will arrive with a cover price of $4.99 in stores on Wednesday, September 29th.
