A special preview of Richard Sala's The Hidden, plus a Sala sale!
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under sales specialsRichard SalapreviewsComing Attractions 9 Sep 2010 7:26 AM

The Hidden by Richard Sala

Richard Sala has created a blog with a special 13-page sneak peek at his upcoming graphic novel The Hidden, which is now available for pre-order. Originally scheduled for release this fall, the book is now slated for early next year. Richard apologizes for the delay and promises that this book will be a bit different than anything he's done before. Judging from the preview pages he's posted, it's going to be a doozy of a book!

The Hidden by Richard Sala - page 9

In an effort to keep your spine sufficiently tingled until The Hidden drops next year, all of Richard's in-stock books and comics are now at least 25% off for a limited time! Stock up on back issues of his comics series Evil Eye for just 99¢ each; meet the intrepid and enchanting Peculia; thrill to Mad Night, The Chuckling Whatsit and Maniac Killer Strikes Again!; and feast yourself on his acclaimed recent Ignatz Series serial Delphine — all at bargain prices for a limited time. And as if that weren't enough, many of Richard's books come with bonus bookplates signed by Richard as a FREE bonus!
