Fairlady #1 Gets a Second Printing

Writer Brian Schirmer, artist Claudia Balboni, and colorist Marissa Louise’s new whodunit fantasy series Fairlady launched with a West Coast signing tour and early fan support. Fairlady #1 will be rushed back to print in order to keep up with the enthusiasm for the new series.

This debut issue and each following issue will feature a complete 30-page story and blends the procedural case-solving of Magnum, P.I. and Fables, with a Rat Queens-like high-fantasy aesthetic.

In Fairlady, after posing as a man to join the army, Jenner Faulds returns home to The Feld for a new start as a “Fairman”—a specially licensed private investigator. But sexism didn’t end on the battlefield, and as the only “Fairlady,” Jenner gets stuck with the cases nobody else wants. Hitting the streets to solve The Feld’s overlooked mysteries, Jenner finds that the smallest cases hide the biggest secrets.

Fairlady #1, second printing (Diamond Code MAR198112) will be available on Wednesday, May 15. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, April 22.

Batman Who Laughs #4 (DC Comics) – How does the Batman Who Laughs see through that visor? Scott Snyder says we’ll find out here!

Cold Blood Samurai #1 (Action Lab Entertainment) – A feudal Japan with anthropomorphic and samurai animals inspired by Homer’s poem on “War of Mice and Frogs,” Batrachomyomachia. Sure, why not?

Detective Comics #1001 (DC Comics) – The Arkham Knight has arrived!!!

Fairlady #1 (Image Comics) – Fantasy often features war, but what happens when the war is over? This first issue features a complete 30-page story in the issue.

Faithless #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Brian Azzarello and Maria Llovet are delivering this new miniseries that’s about sex, the devil, and magic. We’re intrigued enough to check out the first issue.

Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #5 (Marvel) – Aunt May will finally tell Peter what’s going on in this issue and it’s going to be an emotional one.

Ronin Island #2 (BOOM! Studios) – Writer Greg Pak has been knocking it out of the park and this series which focuses on former enemies having to band together to survive is really good so far.

Symbiote Spider-Man #1 (Marvel) – Untold tales of Peter’s time with the black suit!

Sweetie #2 (Action Lab Entertainment) – A high school student is a hero but her powers won’t help her make friends. It’s been good so far.

War of the Realms: Journey Into Mystery #1 (Marvel) – The War of the Realms has begun and this seems like it’s going to be one of the key tie-ins focused on Thor’s sister!

Web of Venom: Cult of Carnage #1 (Marvel) – Something big is coming having to do with Carnage and Venom and this series will probably be key.
