Frank Miller Presents, the new publishing imprint created and curated by Frank Miller, with former DC publisher Dan DiDio as FMP publisher, released its first published work into comic book stores on Wednesday, the 17th of August. This original 32-page comic, with a suggested retail price of $1, was sent to comic book stores, free of charge, as an introduction to Frank Miller Presents upcoming line of books, through Diamond Comic Distributors, 12,000 copies, allocated to the size of each store. Copies were also given away to attendees at comic book conventions that Frank Miller has attended. And just yesterday a copy sold for just shy of $30 on eBay.
Now it seems retailers can order second prints of the Frank Miller Presents ashcans to be sold for $1 each – though retailers will have to pay the usual wholesale amount this time, rather than get them for free. And it goes to FOC on Monday, and will be in comic book stores for the 21st of September.
You can tell the difference because the cover puts The Geek on top over Ronin Book II. This is how the first printing looked in comparison.
