    SELLING OUT

    BERKELEY, CA -- 6 April 2011 -- Continuing the recent trend of releasing new series to rave reviews and instant sellouts, Image Comics has announced that BLUE ESTATE #1, GREEN WAKE #1, NONPLAYER #1, UNDYING LOVE #1 and the second printing of THE INFINITE VACATION #1 have all sold out at the distributor level and are going back to press.

    Taken together, the five titles are an almost perfect example of the diversity of creator-owned comics showcased by Image on a weekly basis: BLUE ESTATE is a crime comic that leads readers through the tangled web of mistaken identities, backstabbing conspirators and dubious alliances; GREEN WAKE is a riveting horror tale set in a town plagued by a string of grisly murders; NONPLAYER is a sci-fi/fantasy epic that takes inspiration from mutli-player online roleplaying games; UNDYING LOVE is a horror/action series set in modern day Hong Kong that mixes Chinese folklore with vampire mythology; THE INFINITE VACATION is a high concept sci-fi love story set in a parallel reality, where an app that allows users to answer the age-old question of "what if" has changed everyone's lives forever.

    "For years, Image has specialized in producing a wide variety of titles, but we've just been blown away by the work these creators are bringing us," said Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson. "These are writers and artists with singular visions, telling unique stories that you just can't find anywhere else, and I think that's something audiences are responding to more and more. We're more than happy to keep 'em coming."

    Stephenson also urged direct market retailers to take a closer look at the orders: "We set our print runs based off the orders we receive at final order cut-off, but more and more frequently, we're finding our overprint estimates aren't matching demand. Selling out is nice, but honestly, it's not helping anyone when the books aren't on the stands. Going back to press takes time, and I'd just as soon have the books available."

    With that in mind, new printings of Image's most recent sell-out titles are available for order now, with the following ship dates:

    FEB118120 BLUE ESTATE #1 (2nd Printing) $2.99 on sale 5/4
    FEB118259 GREEN WAKE #1 (2nd Printing) $3.50 on sale 5/4
    FEB118267 NONPLAYER #1 (2nd Printing) $2.99 on sale 5/11
    FEB118097 UNDYING LOVE #1 (2nd Printing) $2.99 on sale 5/11
    FEB118268 THE INFINITE VACATION #1 (3rd Printing) $3.50 on sale 5/11
