Welcome back to…
Hey folks, it’s the Supple Boiz, Ethan S. Parker and Griffin Sheridan here. We’re back to catch you up on every single happening in the wonderous, mysterious world of KLC PRESS, and there sure are plenty of them this week! Let’s do a big dive into the news like we’re the big wet Avatar people in the movie Avatar: The Way of Water.
VANISH HITS SHOPS!
This was a momentous week for KLC PRESS, as Wednesday marked the the occasion we’ve all been waiting for… Anyone and everyone can officially walk into their local comic book shop and ask for their very own copy of VANISH #1!
We’re so excited to finally have this insane series out in the world. But HEY! If you can’t make it to your LCS, don’t worry… We’ve still got you covered. Two options:
OPTION 1: If you become one of our wonderful paid subscribers by jumping on board for $5 per month, you can skip the trip and read VANISH #1 right NOW in glorious digital format! Just hit the Subscribe button below, Chain Gang.
OPTION 2: You can order your favorite cover of VANISH #1 and so much more from the STEGWORLD SHOP simply by clicking the image below! And if you subscribe to this very KLC Press Substack like we mentioned earlier, you even get a sick discount! You can’t go wrong there, friends.
A huge thank you to everyone who has supported us along the way, and for making the creation of this incredible book happen. Oh, and speaking of the STEGWORLD SHOP…
HUGE NEW EXCLUSIVES LAND IN THE STEGWORLD SHOP, STARTING MONDAY!
Oh yes. Dropping Monday at 8:00AM PST/11:00AM EST, KLC Press Substack subscribers will have a week of early access (in the KLC PRESS ACCESS section) to some insane new STEGWORLD exclusives! That’s a whole week before the rest of the world gets their shot… PLUS subscribers will get a swanky 15% off DISCOUNT! Now that’s value, baby.
Let’s take a look at the goods…
Aren’t they beautiful?
Now, these two covers are limited to 500 copies, so you’re gonna wanna snatch yours up as quick as you can. However, if you wanna get even fancier…
It’s all about the foil covers these days. Both covers will be available in foil, both limited to just 100 copies! But if we can tempt you just one more time…
YOU CAN GET ALL OF THESE COVERS SIGNED BY RYAN STEGMAN HIMSELF.
That’s right, you can have that extra-shiny copy of VANISH stamped by the iconic stegosaurus-signature of the big man, and who wouldn’t want that?
Plus, elsewhere on STEGWORLD, there will be pre-orders launching for VANISH #3 and #4, as well as all sorts of MARVEL goodies you can get signed by Ryan as well.
ROSENBERG RENTS THE SUPPLES FROM STEGMAN!
Remember a few weeks ago when we teased a brand-new podcast coming soon to the AMAZING FRIENDS PODCAST NETWORK?
Well this week we were thrilled to launch IDEAS DON’T BLEED, a brand-new podcast featuring friend of the imprint MATTHEW ROSENBERG and your local Supples! The show will feature some incredible guests from every corner of the comics world every single week, beginning with the one and only KELLY THOMPSON!

THE KLC COMMUNITY THROWS A VANISH AFTERPARTY!
We wrapped up this legendary week with a huge, celebratory VANISH #1 afterparty stream! Ryan Stegman and the Supples hung out with a legion of wonderful subscribers, chatting their favorite moments from the once-in-a-lifetime issue!
And then Chip Zdarsky showed up and ruined everything.
You can check out the stream below, and celebrate with us! Just as a warning though, there will be a point when Chip appears on his trampoline, and it’s best for everyone if you just don’t watch any further. It’s not going to make you happy, he doesn’t make anyone happy.
But that wasn’t all…
OUR BIG RAFFLE WINNERS THIS WEEK!
Ohhhh shit. It was raffle time once again here at KLC PRESS, which means that we picked two very lucky subscribers to receive some very cool prizes LIVE on the aforementioned stream!
One subscriber will be getting their hands on an incredible Oliver Harrison sketch (which is soon to be a “Character Variant” for an upcoming VANISH issue!), and the other will get a gorgeous FOIL edition of the SPAWN HOMAGE VARIANT of VANISH #1… SIGNED BY RYAN STEGMAN! Good lord. Check out the prizes and their winners below!
OH… AND ONE MORE THING!
Lord Stegman decided to grace us all with one more delightful morsel this week…
A tantalizing sneak peek at an upcoming issue of VANISH! One which he has defiantly captioned:
Here is a panel from vanish that I shouldn’t be showing but it’s my book and I can do whatever I want
He’s a man of the people. Check it out below and commence speculation!
