Sequart Research & Literacy Organization is proud to annouce that the second edition of Grant Morrison: The Early Years is now available for order only through comic shops.
The book is listed in July’s Previews catalogue, which was published at the end of June. You can find it in the books section, which comes just after the comics section. The book was chosen as a “Featured Item,” and you can also see our half-page ad alongside the listing itself. You can see the Previews listing here.
If you’re familiar with this well-received book, you’ll be interested to know that this is a revised, second edition. In addition to a revised text, the book includes a newly-added essay on Grant’s first story for2000AD, published even before his work on Zenith.
We here at Sequart are proud to be listed in Previews and available through comics shops. We really want this book to be a success through comic stores, in particular, because we want our other books to get into stores too. Because of this, we’ve made this second edition currently available exclusively through Diamond Comics Distributors. So it would mean a lot to us if you would support this effort.
Essentially, we’re asking you to vote with your dollars for our unique brand of well-written, accessible comics scholarship. And you get a really great book.
But please don’t count on your store to order copies — most stores won’t. The best thing you can do is to order copies in advance by telling your store that you want them to get a copy for you. That’s the only way to make sure you get a copy of this second edition, currently available nowhere else. Because we’re buried in the catalogue, it might help to give your local retailer the book’s order code, which is JUL084473.
If you believe in our mission or even just like more quality books on comics, spread the word. Blog about the book, even if it’s just to point out this interesting item. Tell others. Whatever you do, get your store to order copies.
Please help make this initial offering through comic book stores a success.
Sequart is blessed to have found so many who support our mission. Thanks in advance for everything you do — and let us know if we can help!
