Anyone else looking forward to this when it comes out?

Yup. Been trying to hold off grabbing an ashcan copy because I keep telling myself prices will go back down. It's been...difficult.

Are you talking about the 1 preview copy they sent to stores? How much is that going for?

Yup. Around $80 now. They were going for twice that briefly when word first got out about them.

Wow that is crazy.  To me, this book looks like if Pixar were to release a comic book.  I like Skottie Young's style so I will check it out but no need for the premium Ash Can version.

Skottie is the writer on this one.

Kyle Strahm is the artist.  And seems like a pretty awesome fellow.

I missed the ashcan at the LCS.  Heard about it after from the Twig FB group.  Kyle did a Instagram giveaway (5 copies) and then surprised 3 of the FB people with ashcan copies also.  They are going to do another giveaway of some sort at 500 members, if you are on FB look it up. :)

My understanding is there were a bunch of the ashcans signed at a con and the car transporting them after got into an accident and they were destroyed/damaged.  So a signed one went up and sold for $200+ which led to FOMO on the reg copies. (I have no hard evidence of this just water cooler rumor)

I was told they had them at cons last year. So they are a lot more than one per store.

Correct, they were done as a surprise 1 per store.  I know Kyle was selling them as early as last Nov at cons he attended.

Kyle just posted that he is doing another random giveaway to those that order one of his newly revealed SPLAT variant covers for Twig.

You can also signup for his newsletter, he emailed the 4 covers yesterday out to those on his newsletter list.  3 people in the 1st 50 are getting surprise remarks (also random).

Ordered the virgin variant. Maybe I'll get lucky.

Is this the ashcan? I ask, because I’m used to the ones that are smaller in size that I have in my collection; e.g., Image’s Codename: Stryke Force & Wild C.A.T.S.

Yeah, that's the one. I thought the dimensions for ashcans were smaller myself, as I've had a few like you mentioned, but many are the size of regular comics these days. I have several from Scout that are the same size as regular comics, only fewer pages.

Thank you, Lord Gemini for the clarification.

The ashcan is smaller. It was posted by @Crops068 up thread but the image link isn't working anymore.

Ah, thanks. I hadn't seen this particular one in person. I just know many of the ashcans I have are the same size as a standard comic.
