Please note that neither the Panelbook nor the Gridbook are printed on archival or acid-free stock; these are meant as design and thought sketchbooks, and not as the final home for your masterpiece. Printed on 60# white stock, they handle pencils and ink pens well, but markers are apt to bleed.

Retailers interested in carrying the Panelbook and the Gridbook should email About Comics for details on our wholesale plans.

Why $8.34?

You may be wondering why some of The Blank™ Comic Book volumes are priced at $8.34. The answer is simple: we were trying to save our customers money. At the time, Amazon was offering buy-3-get-1-free on all books under $10, and free shipping with any order over $25. $8.34 was the cheapest price that would let the customer get free shipping when ordering four copies. Amazon has since changed their policies, but people seemed to like the price, so we've kept it.
