Comics publisher DSTLRY has revealed an open-order variant cover for Gone #1 by Eisner-Award winning creator Peach Momoko (Demon Days). The sci-fi series features 48 pages written, drawn, and colored by Eisner-Award winning creator Jock, and spins out of his 8-page story “The Stowaway” from The Devil’s Cut, which itself has officially sold out on the distributor level with over 55,000 copies sold just one week after release.
“It’s incredible to see so many fans and retailers supporting our launch with such genuine excitement and enthusiasm for both The Devil’s Cut and what’s to come,” said DSTLRY co-founders David Steinberger and Chip Mosher in a joint statement. “We’re deeply touched by the level of interest in an independent, creator-owned publisher, so much of which is due to our legendary creator lineup, and we promise that we will continue to work tirelessly on behalf of creators, retailers, and fans to continue—and exceed—the high bar this sets.”
Gone #1 will be available for purchase at local comic shops starting on October 25, 2023. Retailers can place orders now, with the Final Order Cutoff Date as September 10 through Lunar Distribution and September 11 through Diamond Comic Distributors.
Synopsis: On an impoverished and distant planet where menial workers scratch out a living resupplying starships, the best place to be is GONE…and that’s exactly where 13-year-old Abi wants to be. Along with her street-tough friends, Abi stows away on a colossal luxury space-liner, hoping for a better life. Unbeknownst to her, Abi’s “friends” are not who they seem, and she suddenly finds herself branded a saboteur as she desperately struggles to evade the ship’s deadly crew to stay alive! As the young heroine confronts betrayal, discovers her true allies, and fights against all odds, Abi will soon realize that nothing is farther away than…home.
