BOOM! Studios will be offering a limited holofoil edition of their sold out comic FARSCAPE #1 available exclusively during New York Comic Con 2009.
The holofoil cover, featuring FARSCAPE’s main character John Crichton, is limited to 500 copies, and will only be available at the BOOM! Studios booth (#1313) during New York Comic Con 2009. Featuring a gold metallic finish on a cardstock cover, it will be one of the most special limited edition collectibles ever made in association with FARSCAPE due to its extremely low print run. It is unavailable anywhere else.
New York Comic Con runs from Friday to Sunday February 6th - 8th, 2009 at The Javits Center in Manhattan.
This special limited edition comic is the first of an upcoming series of three special covers that will debut at a select number of comic book conventions across the country at the BOOM! Studios booth.
“When I first heard the term ‘holofoil’ I didn’t know what to think. It’s hard to describe the special metallic effect the books have. But once the issues came into the office, they blew my socks off,” said Chip Mosher, Director of Sales and Marketing. “Fans are going to absolutely love them.”
