BOOM! Studios' "CODA" #1 goes to a second printing the day before it debuts
As Brian mentioned in this week's Ten or Less, BOOM! has been killing it with their books lately. As proof, look no further than tomorrow's CODA #1, which is going to print again before the first issue even drops. It will also get a new cover from Jakub Rebelka to boot, so that's not a bad deal all around.
CODA #1 Sells Out
Before It Hits Stores &
Returns With A New Printing!
“The art by Matias Bergara is INSANE and the world building and character work Si pulls off is first rate. This one is really special!” - Jeff Lemire (Black Hammer)
“...dancing between bleak and wry, funny and heart-wrenching” - Kieron GIllen (The Wicked + The Divine)
Coda #1 Second Printing Variant Cover by Jakub Rebelka
LOS ANGELES, CA (May 1, 2018) – BOOM! Studios is proud to announce that CODA #1, beginning a new twelve-issue series from Eisner-nominated writer Simon Spurrier (Sandman, The Spire) and Matías Bergara (Cannibal, Supergirl), has sold out at a distributor level one day before the issue goes on sale at comic shops.
To meet the demand, CODA #1 SECOND PRINTING VARIANT will arrive in stores on June 13, with an all-new cover by Jakub Rebelka (Judas) and alongside Coda #2. This oversized debut issue, with 40 pages of story content and additional backmatter, arrives at the same $3.99 price point as each issue of this twelve-issue series.
CODA reveals the aftermath of an apocalypse which wiped out nearly all magic from a once-wondrous fantasy world, in which an antisocial former bard named Hum seeks a way to save the soul of his wife with nothing but a foul-tempered mutant unicorn and his wits to protect him...but is unwillingly drawn into a brutal power struggle which will decide forever who rules the weird wasteland.
“Once we got a peek at the insane alchemy Si and Matías were working up together, we knew we had something special with CODA,” said Eric Harburn, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “The incredible response to this issue, before it even arrives in stores, is a testament to the fantastic world they’ve built and to the power of original concepts in the comic book market.”
CODA #1 is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ eponymous imprint, home to a world-class group of licensed comic book series and ambitious original series, including Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Planet of the Apes, WWE, Abbott, Mech Cadet Yu, Klaus and Grass Kings, which was recently nominated for two 2018 Eisner Awards.
The reprinting of CODA #1 will hit comic shops on June 13, right alongside the second issue of the twelve issue series.
