Dynamite Entertainment announced today that initial orders from retailers have exceeded 100,000 copies for their launch of the all-new, ongoing Highlander comic book series. The series kicks off with an introductory priced #0 issue, for which Dynamite will set the print run above these initial orders to meet the anticipated demand. Issue #0 is scheduled to arrive in stores in July. The company also announced it will add a special preview of Lone Ranger #1 to the Highlander #0 comic.

“Thank you to the fans and retailers who have supported our launch, and who have allowed us to have sales in the stratosphere near a high selling Marvel or DC Comic! And as a bonus, we are placing in a preview of Dynamite’s upcoming Lone Ranger #1.  We had hoped to get the preview of Lone Ranger #1 into Galactica #0, but the timing did not work out, so now we’ve added it to Highlander #0 and fans can check it out,” explained Dynamite Spokesperson J. Allen. “Our introductory issue for Highlander leads right into issue #1, so fans should plan on picking up #0 and get ready for #1 in October! We’d like to again thank all of the fans and retailers for their continued support of Dynamite and our comics!”

Look for Highlander #0 at your local comics shop in July!

"Dynamite's success with Army of Darkness and Red Sonja proves that a well-crafted comic will find an eager audience in comic shops, whether there's a film to support it or not. Highlander is sure to join that list."
-- Cliff Biggers, Dr. No Comics

“Dynamite Entertainment does it again with Highlander #0 for only 25 cents!!
Their other 25 cent releases have been amazing successes for Stormwatch Comics, allowing us to put these books into every customer’s hands, knowing full well that many of them will be hooked and sign up for more! Match that proven track record with a built in audience and you’ve got a sure thing on your hands."
