Garth Ennis' The Pro Brings Another Instant Sell-Out Sketch Card Set

Yesterday 5finity put their latest all sketch card set for The Pro out for pre-sale. Not long after all 800 packs were sold out.

The Pro Sketch Card Series - Cal Slayton
Set for a June 15 release, the set is based on the comic created by Garth Ennis, Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner. The story pokes fun at superhero lore and follows the exploits of a super-powered hooker. So maybe for once the extra-large chest is for genuine giggles in the form of parody. I can't say that I've yet to read the one-shot comic, but the bit of research I did above certainly has me curious.

Each of the serial numbered packs contain at least one sketch card. However, like all 5finity sets from the past year, there'll be a handful of chase elements as well:

  • 50 Rare Artist Sketch Cards (1:16 packs)
  • 50 Hot Packs with 2-3 Sketch Cards (1:16 packs)
  • 20 Amanda Conner Sketch Cards (1:40 packs)
  • 10 Jimmy Palmiotti Sketch Cards (1:80 packs)
Overall odds for a chase pack are 1:6 packs. There's also 32 incentive sketch cards for dealers ordering 25 packs or more.

Here's the list of artists signed on for the set thus far:
