My campus comix shop has been good enough to order in a few copies of the first two issues of
Rex Libris for me (first mentioned here last August), and I'll continue to patronize them, but good news for the rest of you - according to this press release, Slave Labor Graphics is re-releasing issue #1 of Rex Libris "to keep up with reader demand"! Not only that, but you can get it from none other than Amazon.com! A couple of nuggets from the press release:
A number of positive reviews and support from an enthusiastic librarian community spread the good word about Rex Libris, and the series continues to be a strong seller. Also available now is a Rex Libris poster (12 x 17"), featuring Rex in the manner of Uncle Sam, demanding, "Have You Returned Your Library Books?" A Rex Libris Ordo Bibliotheca T-shirt will be available shortly, and a limited edition Rex Libris statuette will be released in summer 2006.
Just checked and did indeed find the first two issues on Amazon, though you'll be waiting 4-6 weeks to receive them. I didn't see the poster for sale there.
IMHO the innaugural issue was better than the second one, but hey, I'll still have to get the entire collection, right? As an aside, I really love PubSub, which is how I found out about this press release. Keep up the good work Steven!
