I mentioned that I may be tradewaiting for this series, and in that case some thoughts occured.
Just thinking out loud here, and it may be a bit too pragmatic/cynical (in that case, sorry..)
It might be tricky to find a good way to collect this series and make it attractive for the book audience.
Facts: 1000 Wolves is a three issue mini series, with a stand alone story, unknown writer, almost unknown artist but with shiny art.
IDW's regular price for three issue mini series is about 14.99$, TPB and HC. Recent examples from my collection are Angel:Barbary Coast and The Ghoul.
But those series have got either brand recognition (Angel) or a famous creator (Bernie Wrightson), to cancel out such a high price for little content.
1000 Wolves got none of those..
So maybe it could be an idea to experiment with either price or size?
(also, it might be room to do that, since the writer already got a full paid day job and doesn't depend on this for a living
If so, then my suggestions are:
either a regular TPB, with a price of 9.99 $, or an European sized hardcover (8 x 12 inches) to showcase the art of Wachter, price 14.99 $.
Do I make any sense?
And if I don't, feel free to ignore it.
