Publisher Description.  After a tumultuous 2020 that saw many in the comics world struggle to survive, independent publisher A Wave Blue World begins 2021 by showing gratitude to supporting retailers who have ordered their books, backed their Kickstarters, or signed up for their monthly newsletters.

AWBW will be sending supporting retailers 2 limited edition copies of The 27 Run: Crush #1 Premier Edition featuring an exclusive cover by artist Leo Colapietro.  The exclusive is limited to a print run of 300.

Crush is the follow-up to 2018’s original mechs vs. monsters graphic novel The 27 Run.  The sequel introduces a new hero, Beti, and her telepathic dog, E.K., as they face off against 27 towering monsters in a post-apocalyptic Earth.  Created and written by Justin Zimmerman, the series features art by Ethan Claunch and Russell Brown, colors by Fran Gamboa, and lettering by Thomas Mauer.

Premier Editions are print comics that present the first issue of a new series with a specialty cover and exclusive back matter you won’t find anywhere else.  They lead directly into the collected edition 2 months later.  For those who prefer reading chapter by chapter, digital issues will be serialized on digital platforms like Comixology and Spinwhiz every other week starting with the direct market release of the Premier Edition.

The regular edition of The 27 Run: Crush #1 Premier Edition hits retail shops January 13, 2021 with a cover by Ken Lashley and Juan Fernandez.  A hardcover collected edition will be released March 10 featuring cover artist Robbi Rodriguez.

Other Premier Editions due out this year from A Wave Blue World include Averee by Stephanie Phillips and Marika Cresta with an exclusive cover by Dave Johnson (February 2021), and The Orphan King by Tyler Chin-Tanner and James Boyle with an exclusive cover by InHyuk Lee (April 2021).
