For those who don't know:
From Dark Horse Comics:
God knows it took us ages to get Darkness Calls #1 out, but as I write this, the big news in the horror line is the long-awaited release of Satan's Sodomy Baby, from Eric Powell. Why "long awaited"? Well, Eric first wanted to do this book over a year ago, as Goon #18, but when we saw the script, we had to beg him to do something else for Goon #18, lest the kiddies that had been reading the all-ages Goon title for so long be struck blind-and the retailers who sold it to them cast in irons and dragged off to Cade's Penitentiary. Then a lot of other things got in the way of Eric doing Satan's Sodomy Baby as a standalone title. When he finally did do it, and got it done on time, and sent to the printer . . . it just didn't come back. I made an announcement on MySpace explaining that the delayed release was due to the printer being tied up with Free Comic Book Day, but it later turned out that that was only half of the problem. Because of FCBD, the printer needed to set print runs earlier than usual; however, Dark Horse sent those print runs for the affected books when they needed them-please note that all affected books were from the horror line, with Darkness Calls #1, Rex Mundi #5, and Eric's dirty devil baby comic. Our VP, Neil Hankerson, sent those print orders out, but the e-mail never reached the printer. The printer's e-mail system has a spam blocker that kicked the word sodomy out; with the chaos of Free Comic Book Day consuming pretty much everyone in the industry, the problem wasn't noticed right away, and Eric's book got shoved even further back. It hit the stands May 16, but hopefully there are still some copies floating around, if you've got the stomach for it.
