Image United - A Pre-Release Sell Out
Headline - Press release
Posted by Fletch Adams on Dec 22, 2009
IMAGE UNITED, the six-part crossover written by Robert Kirkman and featuring Image Founders Erik Larsen, Rob Liefeld, Todd McFarlane, Whilce Portacio, Marc Silvestri and Jim Valentino, makes its second coming to comic stands this Wednesday with a pre-release, distribution-level sell out!
"Considering the substantial overprint, we're quite pleased by how quickly IMAGE UNITED has sold out," Kirkman said. "The reception to the first issue was immense with its own sell out the day of release, but to hear it's happening a second time, two days before, makes everyone involved very happy. This crossover is a major labor of love, so we're very thankful for the support by both our fans and retail partners."
IMAGE UNITED is a six-part crossover encompassing the entire Image superhero universe and features each Image founder illustrating their own characters. Since its announcement, the crossover has garnered headlines from the New York Times, USAToday and other massive media outlets with its once-in-a-lifetime approach to the superhero crossover. Despite a significant overprint, the second issue completely sold out at a distribution-level two days before release. A new printing will be released in January with a new cover by Rob Liefeld.
IMAGE UNITED #2 2nd Printing, a 32-page full color comic book for $3.99, will be in stores January 20th, 2010.
