BOOM! Studios’ “Once & Future” #1 goes back for yet another printing
Remember how Kieron Gillen, Dan Mora, and Tanra Bonvillain’s Once & Future #1 went back for a second printing?
Remember how the first printing doesn’t even hit shelves until next week?
Well the second printing has sold out, so the issue has gone back for a third printing.
All before anyone’s even read it. Crazy.
Great news all around, and I can’t wait to read this book, so check out the details below while we wait patiently for any of the printings to drop.
ONCE & FUTURE #1 SELLS OUT AGAIN, BOOM! STUDIOS FAST TRACKS THIRD PRINTING
The Most Anticipated Original Series Of The Year Is Sold Out Again!
LOS ANGELES, CA (August 7, 2019) – BOOM! Studios announced today that ONCE & FUTURE #1, the extra-sized issue kicking off an all-new series from New York Times bestselling writer Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + The Divine, Star Wars), Russ Manning Award-winning artist Dan Mora (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Klaus), and acclaimed colorist Tamra Bonvillain (Doom Patrol), has sold out of its second printing at the distributor level before the series debut on August 14, 2019.
Due to the incredible demand for the premiere issue of the hotly anticipated series, BOOM! Studios has fast-tracked the ONCE & FUTURE #1 THIRD PRINTING VARIANT, featuring an all-new cover by series artist Dan Mora, arriving in stores on September 4, 2019.
The most anticipated original series launch of the year, ONCE & FUTURE introduces readers to ex-monster hunter Bridgette McGuire, who must pull her unsuspecting grandson Duncan, into a world of magic and mysticism to defeat a legendary threat when a group of Nationalists use an ancient artifact to bring a villain from Arthurian myth back from the dead. Now Bridgette and Duncan must navigate the complicated history of the McGuire family and combat the deadly secrets of England’s past that threaten its very future.
“We knew Kieron, Dan, Tamra and the team made something special with ONCE & FUTURE, but we're floored by how quickly the second printing sold out. Even though we fast tracked the second printing to get copies in stores quickly, demand exceeded our expectations and we’re going to have to allocate," said Filip Sablik, President of Sales and Marketing, BOOM! Studios. "ONCE & FUTURE #1 returning with a third printing means even more readers can discover why this is the most anticipated original series of the year!"
Once & Future #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on August 14, with the second printing following on August 28, and then the third printing on September 4.
