This use to seem more like a common thing across most if not all Image books. Seems this trend is slowing down and only really happening on the books that are actually you know, good.
I read Die #1 and found it quite good, it exceeded my expectations since I really had none going into the reading. You can’t go wrong with Stephanie Hans doing the cover art as well.
Read the full press release:
Image Comics is pleased to announce that New York Times bestselling DIE #1, 3rd ptg covercreator Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + The Divine) and artist Stephanie Hans’ Die #1 will be rushed to a third printing in order to keep up with growing demand.
Die is a pitch-black fantasy where a group of adults have to deal with the returning unearthly horror they barely survived as teenage role-players. The series is perhaps best described as “Goth Jumanji”—but that only captures a sliver of what you’ll find in this series where fantasy gets all too real.
Die #1, 3rd printing (Diamond Code DEC188797) will be available on Wednesday, Feb 20. The final order cutoff deadline for comic shop retailers is Monday, Jan 28.
Die #2, 2nd printing (Diamond Code DEC188162) will be available on Wednesday, Feb 13.
Die #3 Cover A by Hans (Diamond Code DEC180240) and Die #3 Cover B by Bartel (Diamond Code DEC180241) will be available on Wednesday, Feb 6.
Fans can also subscribe to receive the series delivered by mail within the domestic U.S. on Image Direct.
Die is also available for purchase across many digital platforms, including the official Image Comics iOS app, Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
