Sanctum Sanctorum Comics & Oddities is a collector-favorite comic shop in Michigan, known for its incredibly sought after exclusive variants. With the upcoming release of the Stranger Things mini-series by Dark Horse Comics, it is no surprise that one of the most talked about and coveted variants of the year will be from Sanctum Sanctorum. Comic Burst was fortunate to be able to sit down with the kind folks of Sanctum Sanctorum for another addition of “Five Questions and a Comic".
Comic Burst: Who is the cover artist and what can you tell us about their work?
Sanctum Sanctorum: Our cover artist is Lucio Parrillo. We've worked with Lucio before: he's produced two of our Marvel store-exclusives, Venom #1 and Amazing Spider-Man #1.
CB: What were your expectations for the cover?
SS: We specifically requested Lucio Parrillo. Reviewing Lucio's portfolio, we felt that he had the best skill set to portray the Stranger Things Demogorgon in the Upside Down. We are very happy with the final cover art.
CB: Where can everyone get a copy of this incredibly well done variant?
SS: On our Sanctum Sanctorum website or at our physical store located at 15071 Northville Rd., Plymouth, MI 48170
CB: When is it available?
SS: It is available now for pre-order on our website or you can pick up a copy at our store when it is released on Sept. 26.
CB: Why did you choose Stranger Things for a variant?
SS: We were excited when we heard that the Stranger Things title was going to be in comic format and we had been looking to do more independent and smaller press publishers
