A-stud-ounding things are headed your way this August from CEX!
THE WAIT IS FINALLY OVER! CEX is proud to present the collected edition of our inaugural title: Stud and the BloodBlade.
First published in 2021, Stud and the BloodBlade quickly sold out at the distributor level, making it one of the must-have comics of 2021. Created by Perry Crowe and Jed Dougherty, this standout hit perfectly mixes Sci-Fi and Fantasy, Sword and Sorcery with a dash of Humor and a touch of Queer Romance. The result is a stud-licious collection readers will enjoy for years to come.
Along with the collected edition, CEX is also offering Retailers the opportunity to order copies of the limited-edition Signature and Metal variants of Stud and the BloodBlade #1. Available through Diamond Comic Distributors, the Signature edition features the hand-signed signatures of series creators Perry Crowe and Jed Dougherty. This unique collector’s item brings the convention to you, with the benefit of not having to wait in line.
Previously offered through Diamond Comic Distributors, only 50 copies of this ultra-rare limited-edition Metal variant were created, and now, for the first time, we will be making 25 copies available through Lunar Distributors. Retailing for $124.99 the Stud Metal variant is limited to 1 copy per account and quantities may be allocated.
Welcome to Ouroboros, a world teetering between far future and primordial past, where aliens and barbarians, bigfoots and robots, monsters and puns wrestle for control! Mightiest is Stud, he of immense strength and nonexistent impulse control!
It’s He-Man meets the Tick meets Judge Dredd—it’s STUD!!
“If Mattel comes out with a new generation of characters after all these years, I would hire Crowe and Dougherty to add to the mythos. They’ve got the insane synergy of the original toys and show down perfectly.”
