Aspen Comics is ready to kick off the new year—and also celebrate their tenth anniversary year in the industry—by announcing their full slate of titles in their ambitious "10 for 10" initiative, beginning this February.
For Aspen’s "10 for 10", the publisher will be debuting a new series each month for ten straight months, featuring five all new properties and five well-known returning series, with each debut #1 issue offered for only $1. The full list of titles is as follows:
February – Legend of the Shadow Clan (Brand New Series)

September – Executive Assistant: Iris Volume 4
October – Trish out of Water (Brand New Series)
November – All New Soulfire
Aspen is also offering special Aspen "Reserved Edition" covers for each new "10 for 10" release. New readers and fans who add each "10 for 10" release at their local comic shop’s subscription service will be eligible to purchase the "Reserved Edition" covers. Fans who purchase all ten "10 for 10" releases will then be eligible to receive the full-size Aspen "Perfect Tens" poster featuring all ten Reserved Edition covers by the series artists and colored by Peter Steigerwald. Aspen suggests those interested in acquiring the "Perfect Tens" poster and "Reserved Edition" covers to inquire about this special offer with their local retailer today. Aspen also encourages fans and retailers alike to check out the host of other special incentives for their "10 for 10" titles including special CGC signed editions, original hand-drawn covers, and exclusive comic shop variant covers featuring the store’s respective logo on the cover.
Fans and new Aspen readers will also be able to choose their adventure for August’s "10 for 10" release between two all new series: Awaken Skies and Overtaken. Aspen will feature an online voting poll, as well as an in-store voting ballot at comic shops in the coming weeks to allow the public to vote on which property they would like to see in August. The publisher will reveal more details about the voting process soon.
