Following in the footsteps of comics publishers everywhere, webcomics magnates Blind Ferret Entertainment are pleased to announce that the 500th issue of their long-running parody comic, Gutters, has sold out!

“Yeah, it was pretty easy to do since we publish digitally and for free” said Gutters writer and paintball enthusiast, Ryan Sohmer. “But I think we deserve some credit. It’s not easy to make the comics industry look silly. I mean, most of them do it to themselves before we have a chance to!”

The 500th issue of Gutters will be published at Mindnight Eastern Time on Friday, May 9th at www.the-gutters.com. The issue features several variant covers so rare that they don’t even exist.

“We really wanted to flip the ‘Ghost Variant’ idea on its head” notes Editor Jeff Moss. “Our variants are so rare, so secret, that they themselves become ghosts”

“And they have no minimum order ratio!”

Gutters #500 is colored by long-time Gutters colorist Ed Ryzowski and penciled by industry veteran Jason Howard, of Astounding Wolf-Man fame and the upcoming Image series, Trees.

“They masked Warren Ellis’ e-mail address” sighs Howard. “I thought I was doing a variant for a really weird issue of ‘Trees.’”

Gutters #500 also features the last Gutters work of departing letterer Rus Wooton. Wooton, known for his work on such titles as The Walking Dead and Invincible has plans to use his newfound free time to foray into clay pot sculpting.

“They just speak to me, y’know….?” Wooton said when reached for comment in his Colorado home. “It’s like… what were we talking about?”

And what’s next for Gutters?

“I’m thinking a gritty, dark reboot where we make fun of comics… from SPACE!” muses Sohmer, briefly looking up from his Legos. “Oh, and we’ll start using more raccoons. The kids seems to love raccoons these days.”

Gutters #500 goes live at Midnight Eastern Time May 9th at www.the-gutters.com

Back issues and print collections are also available.
