Solar Flare From Scout Comics Sells Out on Day One

Solar Flare #1, the book we have been talking about for a while, and out today from Scout Comics, has sold out at Diamond Comics. In addition, online retailers TFAW and Mycomicshop have sold out as well. 

James Haick messaged me to tell me the good news, that Solar Flare #1 is a sell out on day one, which has been confirmed with Diamonds ordering system. Now, selling out at the distributor level doesn’t mean you will not be able to walk into  shop and find a copy, but the retailers will not be able to buy more first print copies for sale.


As stated, online sellers TFAW and Mycomicshop have already sold through their first print copies. There is only one copy of Solar Flare #1 up on eBay at auction, with no bids yet, at the time of writing.


I would imagine with a sell out at Diamond, a second printing will be coming.

      Did you see the thank you’s inside the front cover. All I can say is a certain someone a.k.a. me and the crew from comics cheating up got thanks before the writers own parents.

    Grabbed one today. The last one. It had a few spine ticks and still bought it. Not having a 7 to eternity 1 moment with this one. 😂

      I was in contact with James when CHU first mentioned this comic a few months ago. He was super nice and was very grateful for the attention his book was getting from CHUs article. I didnt see any copies at the shops I visited today, but have 2 waiting for me at another shop that I had pre ordered. Its great that this 6 issue mini, is going to have its story extended. Great stuff.

    I had my shop order a copy when it was in Previews Magazine at the recommendation of CHU. I picked it up yesterday at the shop and look forward to reading it!

  8. JC says:

    I found about 10 copies at my LCS. All of them had a degree of damage. Reminds me of Grass Kings 1 in terms of various scratches or dings in the cover. Maybe a printing issue?

  9. Tweed says:

    I think UK may be getting copies in couple weeks….FP have preorders up til April 26th. PreviewsWorld states in stores 26th…is there more to come?
