Alterna Comics Brings Back Newsprint as May Releases Sell Out

Alterna has announced that Amazing Age #1, Adam Wreck #1, Croak #1, and Lilith Dark #1 have all sold out at the distributor level before even hitting store shelves.  Despite ordering a 25% larger print run, a surge in demand for the debut titles of Alterna’s newsprint line (sporting cover prices of $1.50 each) have yielded sold out print runs across the board.

Alterna will be going back to press pending demand from retailers once the books hit shelves on May 3rd.

Alterna also has four other titles currently in Diamond’s April Previews catalog, for release in June. Mother Russia #1, Trespasser #1, and Scrimshaw #1 will all sport $1.50 cover prices — and The Chair #1 will be priced at $1.00. These titles will all be printed on newsprint with a semi-gloss cover stock and most will be in full color. With the exception of the Scrimshaw series, all other titles are a mini-series of 3 to 5 issues.
