“Retailers have told us that they’ve seen more new faces in their stores similar to the release of Civil War,” said Marvel’s Vice President of Sales David Gabriel. “New people are embracing the industry, old fans are embracing the new material that Marvel is putting out and it’s all a part of Marvel’s mission to expand and reach a broader audience.”

Online fan reaction has been astounding ranging from comments like “An impressive debut for the collaboration between Marvel and the Dabel Bros.” and “How funny, Anita is now a gateway comic... be prepared to get addicted to a new medium!!”

Marvel and the Dabel Brothers are discussing a second printing to ensure that stores are able to keep this book in stock. Retailers are advised to review their orders for the second issue of Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter, which will include a limited edition print.
