The Secret of Discount Tickets for the Aug NYC Event!

Only 8 days until the book's pre-release event at the Society Of Illustrators in New York City on Wednesday, August 7, at 7pm! And here's how you can get discounted tickets!

It's simple, really: if you pre-order the Secret History of Marvel Comics from Fantagraphics before Wednesday, you can bring your receipt to the event to receive the $7 student rate (instead of the $15 for non-SOI members, or the $10 rate for members). You can also pre-order your event tickets now! (If you're not a member or a student, bring your Fanta. receipt to the event and they'll credit you back the difference right there on the spot!)

The other benefit of pre-ordering from Fantagraphics is that you'll be amongst the first to receive a copy of the book that the authors say will blow a mindhole in your perception of the genesis of Marvel Comics! The book itself is already at the printers so, if you pre-order, it's only a short matter of time until you have the book in your hot little hands.

Stay tuned to this blog for more special deals available at the event. We'll see you there!


  1. I'm going to be in NYC (visiting from Canada) and will definitely come to the event. Unfortunately I can't seem to find the preorder option on the Fantagrahics website. Am I missing something? I'm guessing I can pickup the book at the event? Also, would an email receipt work for the ticket discount?

  2. Hi Steve. The pre-order link has now been activated on the Fantagraphics web site at the link above. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. See you at the show!
