Nocterra Lights Up Stores with a Sell-Out

No other release on shelves could hold a candle to Wednesday’s mania for Nocterra #1 by award-winning, bestselling writer Scott Snyder and bestselling writer and artist Tony S. Daniel. The highly anticipated debut issue sold out instantly at the distributor level and ignited a reorder firestorm prompting Image Comics to rush the Nocterra #1 back to print.

This second printing will feature new cover artwork by Daniel with colors by Marcelo Maiolo.

Ten years after the world is plunged into an everlasting night that turns all living creatures into monstrous shades, the only way to survive is to stay close to artificial light. Here Nocterra introduces Valentina “Val” Riggs, a skilled ferryman who transports people and goods along deadly unlit roads with her heavily illuminated eighteen wheeler.

The shaded world of Nocterra was first introduced through the wildly successful Kickstarter campaign which ran in October 2020 and offered backers a stab at highly collectable editions of Nocterra content including special prints, a hardcover, and behind-the-scenes process work. The campaign wrapped with hundreds of thousands raised by supporters ready and eager for the story proper to begin.

Nocterra #1, second printing (Diamond Code JAN219075) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, March 31.

Nocterra #1 Glow in the Dark variant (Diamond Code JAN210020) will also be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, March 17.
