Official Press Release

UK based comic store, Limited Edition Comix, is producing an exclusive Haunt #1 variant cover with Todd McFarlane Productions and Image Comics.

The much anticipated Haunt ongoing series - created by Todd Mcfarlane and Robert Kirkman - is due for release in the first week of October and will ship with five covers. The Limited Edition Comix cover will feature art by up and coming artist Carlito Zuniga.

Limited Edition, based in Stevenage (Hertfordshire) and a brand new store opening in London’s Camden Stables Market in October, is one of the fastest growing retail stores in the UK. With over 250,000 comics in stock from the 1960’s to the present, the store continues to innovate in the way it does business, with “Plenty more surprises lined up for its customers and comic fans,” according to Richard Emms, one of Limited Edition's founding partners.

Commenting on the exclusive cover, Emms, a retailer for almost 20 years and co-president of Ardden Entertainment, publisher of the new Flash Gordon and Casper and the Spectrals series, said,

“It’s a dream come true for all of us at the store -- and a real boost for the UK industry.”

“The return of Todd McFarlane to comics has been long overdue and we’re all very excited about the launch of Haunt. To be involved in this capacity is beyond belief. Our pre-orders for the new series are out-of-this-world and we’re sure to sell-out within days.”

“We’re so excited that Todd and Robert have given us permission to use a relatively unknown artist for their brand new creation – we’re blown away with Carlito’s art and believe he’ll be a massive star. I’ve been working with Carlito for a while and to say that he's a talented guy is an understatement.”

“We’d like to extend our thanks to Jen Cassidy at TMP for all of her help. It’s been a real pleasure working with her, Todd and Robert.”

The Haunt #1 Limited Edition Comix variant cover goes on sale in October and will only be available from the Limited Edition store and online at www.ltd-edition-comix.com. A signing with Carlito Zuniga is scheduled for mid-October.
