48-Foot Billboard on the Vegas Strip Heralds World-Wide Debut of Joe Mulvey’s SCAM
ComixTribe Partners With Maximum Comics to Promote SCAM and Comics in a BIG Way
SCAM #1 marks the Diamond Comics debut for ComixTribe, and is the debut series for Mulvey. Two sold-out micro-distributed print runs of SCAM #1 took place in January and February of this year, leading to a distribution deal with the world-wide distributor. The first printing of SCAM #1 was limited to just 777 copies and sold out almost instantly. The new first Diamond printing features a cover with art by Mulvey, colored by Chris Sotomayor (Marvel Comics.)
“Kudos to Joe Mulvey and ComixTribe,” said retailer Larry Doherty, whose New England Comics Retailer’s Alliance was instrumental in getting SCAM off the ground earlier this year. ”Now, where are Marvel and DC’s billboards promoting comics?”
SCAM is an “X-Men meets Oceans 11″ style story, and involves a team of super-powered grifters on the biggest con of their lives…taking down a Vegas casino and getting revenge on a former teammate who double-crossed them. SCAM #1 is the double-sized first installment of a five-issue mini-series, and will be on sale at comic shops world-wide the last week in August.
Mulvey is having a busy month, with his work also being featured in the successful OXYMORON Hardcover Pre-Order Campaign, which raised $26,000 dollars on Kickstarter last week.
