Vannen and Skybound are teaming up again for the ISSUE 100 watch to celebrate the 100th issue of the Eisner award-winning “The Walking Dead” comic book and graphic novels. This limited edition timepiece will only be available July 11th – 15th at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con, Booth #2921.
The limited edition ISSUE 100 watch features Charlie Adlard’s amazing wrap-around cover art from Issue 100…a pile of bodies showing nearly everyone we’ve lost over the past 100 issues, and Rick Grimes still standing. The ISSUE 100 timepiece will be limited to only 500 pieces and sell for $85 each; with packaging signed by Robert Kirkman, this is an amazing collectible to celebrate a milestone issue of this Eisner award-winning series.
Also available from Vannen is the newly-released “Exister” watch for band Hot Water Music!
Legendary post-hardcore pioneers Hot Water Music and Rise Records have released “Exister”, the band’s first studio album in 8 years, and Vannen is celebrating with a limited edition watch! HWM went on hiatus after 2004′s “The New What Next” and the band scattered to spend time with their families and recharge with side projects. They regrouped at Blasting Room Studios with punk rock legend Bill Stevenson (Descendants, ALL) and the result is their tightest and most captivating album yet.
The limited edition EXISTER watch features the original album art by Richard Minino (Horsebites) of The Black Axe and custom engraving on the back and crown. Limited to only 500 pieces, EXISTER will retail for $75 and comes with a Hot Water Music sticker and packaging signed by the entire band!
EXISTER will only be available through VannenWatches.com and HotWaterMusic.com. HotWaterMusic.com(MerchNow) will be offering the watch as a standalone product for $75 as well as a CD+Watch combo for $85 and a CD+LP combo for $90.
As a special bonus for this release, one watch will contain a HWM guitar pick signed by guitarist Chris Wollard. Whoever finds that pick is entitled to a guest list spot and a plus-one for their choice of Hot Water Music show on their US Tour this Fall! (No airfare or accommodations, just a spot on the guest list for you and your suitably impressed date.) Please visit HotWaterMusic.com for tour dates, and good luck!
