Image Comics' "Fairlady" #1 goes back for a second printing
By now, you should know how much we love good comics. You should also know how much we love it when great comics get additional printings.
With Image Comics’ Fairlady… well, I think you know where this is going.
Yes, the new episodic fantasy/mystery series’ first issue has sold out and gone back for a separate printing, which is always good news. The adventures of “Fairlady” investigator Jenner Faulds is plenty fun, with a great concept, cool fantasy locales, and a more than welcome episodic approach to storytelling. Each issue tells a complete story, which is great for enticing new readers. Given that the first issue is already being reprinted after just a few weeks on the stands, I’m guessing it’s paying off.
Check out the details below, as well as a preview video with information about the series.
EPISODIC FANTASY SERIES FAIRLADY HITS THE MARK FOR FANS OF RAT QUEENS, FABLES
The new series is being rushed back to print to keep up with customer demand
PORTLAND, OR 04/15/2019 — Writer Brian Schirmer, artist Claudia Balboni (Star Trek), and colorist Marissa Louise’s new whodunit fantasy series Fairlady launched with a West Coast signing tour and early fan support. Fairlady #1 will be rushed back to print in order to keep up with the enthusiasm for the new series.
This debut issue and each following issue will feature a complete 30-page story and blends the procedural case-solving of Magnum, P.I. and Fables, with a Rat Queens-like high-fantasy aesthetic.
In Fairlady, after posing as a man to join the army, Jenner Faulds returns home to The Feld for a new start as a “Fairman”—a specially licensed private investigator. But sexism didn’t end on the battlefield, and as the only “Fairlady,” Jenner gets stuck with the cases nobody else wants. Hitting the streets to solve The Feld’s overlooked mysteries, Jenner finds that the smallest cases hide the biggest secrets.
Fairlady #1 second printing will hit comic shops on May 15.
