Image Comics sends FATALE #1 back for a fifth printing

Some comics if they’re lucky hit 2-3 prints, Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips are proud to say they’re sending their creation into a 5th pressing for FATALE #1, the comic has been selling like hotcakes and should be arriving on shelves again on May 9th (MAR128079). It’s really a unique milestone for the duo and for Image.

Thoughts from the team:

“I couldn’t believe it when Eric told me the fourth printing had sold out immediately, because we set that print run thinking it would last for several months,” said writer Brubaker. “But it appears many retailers still just can’t keep the first issue in stock. So we are back to press one more time, because I want to be sure retailers can sell the other issues in the series.”

The series has been keeping up in all areas, FATALE 2 and 3 have both hit second printings and issue # 4 just launched 5 days ago so we’ll see if that continues the trend.
