X-O Manowar #1 ComicsPro Lithograph

Just saw this pop up on the official Valiant Comics Twitter feed (@ValiantComics).  It's a photo tweeted by Valiant Comics Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani (@dinesh_s).

The tweet that accompanied it reads as follows:

@ValiantComics is ready for ComicsPro part 1! #comicmarket #valiant #wariscoming

So what can we deduce from all this?  According to the internets, ComicsPro is "the only trade organization dedicated to the progress of direct market comic book retailers". They just happen to have their annual meeting of retailers and publishers in 4 days. I'm guessing that Valiant is going to be there and they are bringing these hand numbered (out of just 400) lithographs (which feature the Esad Ribic cover to X-O Manowar #1) to give to the retailers.

But the tweet also says that this is "part 1". What else do they have planned?  I'll post more when I know more.

No posts for a while as I see if I can open a comic store and fly to the ComicsPro quick enough to get one of these bad boys.
