Today the initial three part mini-series of The Guild comic is released as a trade paperback (all three issues in a bound collection). The trade paperback includes some new extras, including a sketchbook section and pinups, as well as a foreward by director of The Guild, Sean Becker. While many of you reading this may already have all three issues (and even in duplicate covers, and as a digital comic too!), hopefully you’ll consider buying this in “graphic novel” form or making it a gift to someone who might enjoy the show.
Publishing the comic in trade paperback form gets The Guild into traditional bookstores and gets it in front of new audiences. The Guild comic received great reviews, and that continues with the trade paperback. The New York Journal of Books calls it “Equal parts geeky love letter and cautionary tale … (it) succeeds on a number of nuanced levels and should appeal to most readers, regardless of their own backgrounds in pop culture,” and Tor.com has a great review which calls the book “a well-written, well-drawn mini-series that should entertain new readers and fans of The Guild alike.”
The Guild from Dark Horse Comics is available in bookstores everywhere, as well as comic shops (find your local store at ComicStoreLocator.com or by calling 1-888-ComicBook). Online you can purchase at TFAW.com, Amazon.com, Borders.com, BarnesandNoble.com, Chapters.ca and more.
