Image, Stable Numbers
The Back Order List mainstay, and this year usually the biggest company on the list, Image, seems to have gotten to the point where most of the titles are not getting on the Back Order List, just a steady six or so. This week Inkblot #1 and Fire Power #3, already announced for second prints, go on the Back Order List along with: Bitter Root #10 Cover B, Monstress #30, Moonshine #20, Sex Criminals Sexual Gary Special #1 XXX Variant Cover, and Ice Cream Man #20 2nd Print Variant Cover. Lots of good stuff from Image that is no longer available from Diamond.

Scout Comics ends up on the list again with four titles. Like some other small press publishers, Scout Comics seems to print pretty close to the numbers ordered putting them very often on the Back Order List. This week the four titles on the Back Order List were Second Print Variant Covers for both It Eats What Feeds It #1 and Murder Hobo Beaten Broke Buggered #1, and return visits with Skylin #4 and North Bend #5.
