Steve Vincent’s 164 page Odd Tales book will be in a store near you 9/13.
It’s been 17 years since my friends and I traded the first Odd Tales books ( home-made copies of “Devilboy in the Land of Love”) for cheap beer in the parking lot of the Warped Tour in Asbury Park NJ. Over the years we’ve published a lot of mini Odd Tales books (and we’ve traded them of a lot of beer). We’ve toured the country with punk, metal and indie bands and sold a few thousand copies of these stupid little books at concerts,bars,clubs and conventions all over the country. Some of the Odd Tales books have been successful (a revamped “Devilboy in the Land of Love” was one of the top 10 selling independently published TPB’s of 2001) some have not ( I still have two boxes of “The Snow Prince” in my attic). Since 2005 all of our Odd Tales have been released as exclusives for NYCC, a few have even had toys made based on their characters.
Now you can get every “Odd Tales” story from 1996-2011 (even the sucky ones) in one big hardcover book at your local book store.
You can pre-order a copy at any book store starting in June. It is being distributed through Ingram Distribution and Baker and Taylor Distribution, ISBN# is 978-0-9856317-0-3
