“Outer Darkness” #1 has a bright debut and goes back for a second printing

Like I always say, a second printing for an issue is never a bad thing.  Image Comics’ Outer Darkness #1 was a pretty big success, so if you missed out on a physical copy the first time around, you’ll have your chance to pick it up again when the second issue drops next month.  More comics is always a great thing, especially when companies have to print more to keep up with demand.  

Check out the details below.

OUTER DARKNESS SUMMONS SUCCESS ON ITS MAIDEN VOYAGE

Debut issue rushed back to print
PORTLAND, OR, 11/08/2018 — Image Comics and Skybound Entertainment are thrilled to announce that the debut issue of John Layman and Afu Chan’s sci-fi horror series is being fast-tracked for a second printing in order to keep up with customer demand.

In OUTER DARKNESS, humanity successfully colonized the galaxy. But the vast reaches of space are anything but safe. So when Captain Joshua Rigg and the crew of the starship Charon set out on a desperate rescue mission into the Outer Darkness of space, they’ll encounter demonic possessions, hauntings, and other flavors of cosmic horror. Because, quite simply: out in the abyss, everything wants to kill them.

“As I said when I introduced OUTER DARKNESS, I wrote it because it was exactly the sort of comic I would want to read,” said Layman. “But nothing is a sure thing, especially in comics, so it’s especially gratifying to see that this is the sort of comic other people want to read as well. I’m grateful for everybody who’s picked up the book. And if you liked the first issue I’ve got good news: Issue Two is even better.”

OUTER DARKNESS #1 will remain available for purchase across all digital platforms, including the Image Comics website (imagecomics.com), the official Image Comics iOS app, Comixology’s website (comixology.com), iOS, Android, and Google Play.

Outer Darkness #1’s second printing and issue #2 will hit comic shops on December 12.
