I couldn't make it to NYCC, but I did have a friend of mine stop by the IDW booth to pick up the NYCC exclusive version of The Outfit. When he asked which was the limited edition they pointed him to a stack of books. They sold him 2 copies of The Outfit with a numbered bookplate, not signed and without a dustjacket. Any ideas about how to get this fixed? I'm going to write IDW as well, but thought I would ask here as well.

Just a follow up. IDW has already responded and said that they will be mailing dustjackets to all who bought the NYCC lim. ed. Now, to just figure out how to have Darwyn sign this book since it wasn't signed. Hmmm.

Just wanted to pop in and say I also bought The Outfit at the IDW booth, the first copy ended up having gum in it, glad I checked, and the second copy is numbered but with no signature. And I'm hoping the dustjacket gets here ok because the guy at the booth didn't even tell me why I was writing down my name and address.

Great book though.
