I've got a nifty little press release for you today. In the near future Ctrl+Alt+Del will finally be coming to retail locations near you.

(MONTREAL) — (October 14, 2008) — After much anticipation, one of the most popular and well-known webcomics in the digital world is coming to the retail market. After nearly 7 years of publishing the comic online and several self-published collections, Ctrl+Alt+Del will be re-published by Blind Ferret Entertainment for sale in bookstores, libraries, comic shops and other mass merchandise outlets worldwide.

First published online in 2001, Ctrl+Alt+Del is written and drawn by Tim Buckley. With a fan base of nearly 1 ½ million readers each month, Ctrl+Alt+Del is easily one of the most read online comic properties in existence today. “Seeing Ctrl+Alt+Del in bookstores has always been a goal of mine, and I’m thrilled to be making this a reality with Blind Ferret,” said Buckley.

“We’re really excited to work with Buckley on such an exciting project. We’ve collaborated on a number of projects with him in the past, and all have been a great success. The retailers we have spoken with are as excited as us about getting this series onto their shelves,” says Randy Waxman, President of Blind Ferret.

The first volume is expected to hit stores in the 2nd quarter of 2009, with volumes 2 and 3 to follow.

I'll have more details for you as next year approaches.
