BURBANK, CA – To help meet the unprecedented fan demand during the re-launch of its comic book universe, DC is issuing second printings for many of its REBIRTH titles as numerous first issues have sold out within hours of hitting shelves. The announcement comes with the news that the special one-off DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1 will enter a third printing.
Superstar DC writer Geoff Johns kicked off this line wide title re-launch on May 25 with DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1, a special issue that got fans, media and comic industry professionals buzzing with its incredible storyline, all-star team of artists (Gary Frank, Ethan Van Sciver, Ivan Reis, Phil Jimenez, Brad Anderson, Jason Wright, Joe Prado, Matt Santorelli, Gabe Etalb, and Hi-Fi) and shocking twist ending. With fan interest at an all time high, comic retailers quickly sold through the first printing. DC immediately issued a second printing of the book in a special square-bound format, and will now distribute a third printing, hitting shelves on Wednesday, June 29 at a price of $5.99.
Also arriving at local comic book stores on June 29 will be second printings of AQUAMAN: REBIRTH #1, BATMAN: REBIRTH #1, DETECTIVE COMICS #934, GREEN LANTERNS: REBIRTH #1, GREEN ARROW: REBIRTH #1, SUPERMAN: REBIRTH #1 THE FLASH: REBIRTH #1 and WONDER WOMAN: REBIRTH #1. In addition, a second printing of ACTION COMICS #957 will arrive in comic book stores a week later on Wednesday, July 6. These second printings will remain at their original price of $2.99.
Each new printing will feature the comic’s original cover art but will replace the blue curtain image with recolored REBIRTH banners at the top.
