We ran a “buy this book” post on Friday about Burn the Orphanage #1 because the book looks to be Wednesday’s big release. Now it looks that Image comics has another sell out on its hands.
With a few days left before the book comes out, Burn the Orphanage #1 is already sold out on the distributor level and will more than likely be going back for a second print. The book (regular and Guillory variant) are already going for more than cover price.
When a book sells out on the distributor level, it does not mean that you will not be able to pick it up at your local comic shop, it means that once they are sold the store will not be able to restock. This is one books that I would recommend not sitting on the fence about. If you are considering picking it up, do so.
I got advanced copies in Friday of a store variant featuring Brandon Graham art and can tell you this book is killer. If you were a fan of the Street Fighter, Streets of Rage, or other video games in the 80’s it certainly has that feel to it.
