Ten years ago this month, the first issue of Truth Serum was published. It looked like this:
If you'd like to celebrate the ten-year anniversary and don't have any friends or party hats, here are some exciting celebratory-like things you can look at on your computer screen:
CAPTAIN FORCE TURNS TEN

TEN ARTISTS DRAW TEN TRUTH SERUM CHARACTERS
For some reason, somehow, a bunch of talented artists have drawn a bunch of Truth Serum characters. Thank you to each and every one of them for making such a horrible mistake.

Douglas by Dustin Harbin
Eagle Man by Fred Chao
Hot Air Balloon Man by Sean Murphy

After two printings, the very first Truth Serum book has officially sold out, but there are other Truth Serum books. Two others! And this week only, one of them is on sale for pennies. Six hundred pennies, to be exact. Truth Serum: The Lonely Parade, which is normally $15 is now only $6. Is it because we discovered several boxes cluttering up a closet? I mean, who knows.
120 PAGES, FULL COLOR SECTION
Our second book, this collects the long-running feature from the Dark Horse website, but in a much prettier format, including end flaps (which you definitely can't do on a website), a full-color section, a fold-out/tear-out insert.
