And now it’s official:
'DEAD LETTERS' #1 SELLS OUT, BOOM! RUSHES TO A SECOND PRINTING
BOOM! Studios is pleased to announce that the debut issue of DEAD LETTERS, the supernatural noir series from breakout writer Christopher Sebela (Ghost, High Crimes) and dazzling newcomer artist Chris Visions, has sold out at the distributor level. The publisher has rushed to a second printing.
Comic book fans should bear in mind that first printings of DEAD LETTERS #1 may still be found at the local comic shop nearest you.
“I’ll be uncharacteristically brazen and just say this book is flat-out too good not to sell out,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “We’re so proud of this series. It reflects everything we love about making comics. DEAD LETTERS is an elevated, 4-color howitzer of genre fiction from two future stars who are showing us what their made of. This is what we strive for at BOOM!. And we’re so happy retailers and readers have responded the way they have. Sam Whistler’s story is just beginning. Nobody is prepared for what comes next.”
Praise for DEAD LETTERS #1:
“First issues are tough. Good first issues are murder, are rare, are wonderful, and should be shouted about from the rooftops. DEAD LETTERS #1 is a GREAT first issue. And the hook on its first page is only surpassed by the hook on its last page. BOOM! might just have the next Preacher on its hands. Even better, they have the first DEAD LETTERS on their hands.” - Matt Fraction
"…it’ll take you on a memorable ride, and leave you with a revelation that is sure to bring you back next month." - Comic Bastards
“Just when you think you have an idea where everything is going, you get the rug pulled from beneath you.” - Comic Vine
“If Sebela and Visions can continue to masterfully collaborate with such surprising, inspiring and hair-raising plots, there is no doubt this series will become a hit. 10 out of 10.” - Comicosity
DEAD LETTERS #1 second print ships with a new cover by Artyom Trakhanov and carries a retail price of $3.99. It is anticipated to be on sale May 7.
