Department of Truth #1 Gets Over 100,000 Orders and a Second Printing
The Department of Truth by James Tynion IV and Martin Simmonds launched from Image Comics with over 100,000 in orders, before selling out instantly at Diamond Distributors last week. It is being rushed back to print to keep up with the whirlwind customer demand.
The Department of Truth #1 is Image’s third-highest series launch since Eric Stephenson took over as publisher in 2008, behind Jupiter’s Legacy #1 in 2013 and this week’s The Walking Dead Deluxe #1.
Cole Turner has studied conspiracy theories all his life, but he isn’t prepared for what happens when he discovers that all of them are true, from the JFK assassination to flat Earth theory and reptilian shapeshifters. One organization has been covering them up for generations. What is the deep, dark secret behind the Department of Truth?
The Department of Truth #1 second printing (Diamond Code SEP208030) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, November 4.
