Check out some of the announced sell-outs and new printings from this past week.
Writer Jonathan Hickman and artist Tomm Coker launched one of the hottest new series of the summer in The Black Monday Murders. Image Comics has announced that the debut issue will be rushed to a second printing.
The Black Monday Murders is classic occultism where the various schools of magic are actually clandestine banking cartels who control all of society: a secret world where vampire Russian oligarchs, Black popes, enchanted American aristocrats, and hitmen from the International Monetary Fund work together to keep ALL OF US in our proper place.
The Black Monday Murders #1, 2nd printing (Diamond Code JUL168168) as well as The Black Monday Murders #2 (Diamond Code JUL160739) will be available in stores on Wednesday, September 14th. The final order cutoff date for retailers is Monday, August 22nd.
