Throwaways, the new series from writer Caitlin Kittredge and artist Steven Sanders, is headed to stores in trade.
When the series debuted this summer, it received critical acclaim for its skillful blend of classic spy story themes with a heavy dose of conspiracy theory. The book never truly took off in the monthly sales market, despite a strong debut which saw it sell just north of 12,000 copies for the first issue. Subsequent issues failed to crack Diamond’s Top 300, which likely led the series’ early conclusion.
Image Comics announced today that the trade paperback of Throwaways, collecting issues 1-4, will reach comic book shop shelves on December 21st, and will follow Image’s standard practice of retailing for $9.99 (the typical price point for short collections).
