    1. You’re joking, but is there any new Image release lately that hasn’t gotten rushed back to 2nd print? I think, “The Beef,” maybe isn’t as Shaky Kane is an acquired taste for many, but 99% of new Image books get a 2nd printing!

      1. Very few haven’t gone to 2nd print.
        It is cleary a promotional marketing to keep eyes on a title for a few days or weeks longer.
        Unless you have Kirkman money… that guy will just print up a warehouse full of 1st prints.

      2. It’s all marketing BS if you ask me for a lot of these “rushed back for 2nd printing”.. A majority of them that are getting second prints my local shops still had stacks of first prints available. This marketing nonsense is killing Image’s reputation for me. Maybe some shops have ordered light and have put in orders for 2nd prints for some of these but I’m still smelling BS for the most part.
