But in order to persuade retailers to increase orders for one comic book, Image are giving away pornography.
No, not Sex-Criminals-found-in-the-woods pornography, but a newly created Tijuana Bible style style pornographic publication from Matt Fraction and Howard Chaykin, will be sent, ten free for every store that orders ten copies or more of Satellite Sam #8.
Tijuana bibles were illegally created and distributed pornographic recreations of famous figures and popular characters in comic book strips in the early part of the twentieth century.
And these will contain the cast of Satellite Sam, the series set in the early American television industry, and one particular live daily science fiction drama show.
The comic in question will be a plot point and will appear in issue 8 of the comic, and will no doubt be a collectible from retailers in its separately printed form.
