Sam Humphries and Rob G. Promote Boom!’s ‘CBGB’ With a Limited Edition Print [Exclusive]

Next week sees the launch of Boom! Studios music venue-inspired “CBGB” anthology and, true to form, contributors Sam Humphries and artist Rob G. are taking a DIY approach to promoting. Starting next week the pair will independently be promoting the book with a special, limited edition print by G., which will be available for free at select retailers (and at Comic-Con) with the purchase of “CBGB” #1. That’s just how those dudes roll.

“I asked Rob for a piece of original artwork to use on the print. I was expecting something cool, but maybe not much more than a sketch or a quick drawing — Rob’s a busy dude. But as you can see it’s a fully inked, colored, realized, gorgeous piece. He absolutely killed it, just like he did on our story,” said Humphries.

Featuring stories by the teams of Humphries/G. and Kieron Gillen/March Ellerby, “CBGB” #1 hits stores next Wednesday with a cover by none other than Jamie Hernandez (“Love and Rockets”). Humphries and Gillen will be signing the issues at the Boom! booth ( #2743) during next Wednesday’s preview night at SDCC, giving attendees a good shot at picking up one of the just 500, 6×6″ prints in person. Fans wanting to score a print for free need only stay tuned to Humphries’ blog on Friday for a special contest.
