The third book in the Infinite Pendergast Cycle, Goats: Showcase Showdown is coming out on May 25th. I'm very proud of this book, it's the third of three volumes we're publishing through Del Rey and it's a wonderful thing to hold all three together finally in real physical space after working on this project for what must now be two or three years.
The new book contains strips that ran from 2007 through 2008, including storylines The Fine Print, Burn This and Showcase Showdown. There's also one major change to a character that you'll have to pick up the book to find out about, along with one tiny piece of Goats plotline minutia that's never appeared on the site before. Maddening, huh?
If you're planning to buy the book, please consider pre-ordering it directly from me via Topatoco. Buying it directly from the artist means a portion of the purchase price finds its way back to support me and Goats. Every pre-ordered book will be signed by Yours Truly and include bookmarks and stickers.
You can also purchase the book in Artist's Edition flavor, which comes with a personalized sketch inside the cover, some stickers and a Goats mystery print.
If you'd like to pick up all three books at once, well, you can do that too and save some money at the same time.
You can also order Goats: Showcase Showdown from any of these retailers:
A lot of these sites have discounts for new releases like G:SS, so if you're light in the wallet this month it may be a good option for you.
You can also order Goats: Showcase Showdown from your local comic shop! Just tell your favorite comics shop employee that you'd like to place an order for Diamond code MAR10 0895. I believe the book is featured on page 244 of the March edition of Diamond's PREVIEWS
Finally, let me add that while I've been ecstatic with how well these books have sold, my enthusiasm will do nothing to help more get printed. I'm sure folks at Random House are keeping their eyes on the numbers and the performance of this book will determine what happens next. If you'd like to see the next three books published, or if you'd just like to support Goats and show a little love, ordering these books is the best possible way.
Thanks so much for your help and support, I hope you really enjoy the book! And as usual, email me or send me a tweet if you have any questions.
P.S. -- I will have a few dozen sneak preview copies of Book 3 for sale with me at TCAF in Toronto May 8 and 9, first come first served!
