This series is on fire due to just a great story, gaining more readers I think with every issue. I gave it good praise way back before issue #1 hit shelves.

Image Comics is pleased to announce that New York Times bestselling Die #5, from creator Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + The Divine) and artist Stephanie Hans’ Die #5 will be rushed back to print in order to keep up with demand for the story arc’s jaw-dropping conclusion issue.
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 #5, second printing (Diamond Code FEB198781) and will be available on Wednesday, May 1. The final order cutoff for retailers is Monday, April 8.
If you’re like me, I’ve been waiting to read the rest of this story after issue #1 when the trade comes out. If you find issue #1 out in the wild though, pick them up and hold them. This is a nice long term gamble. Trust me, buy and hold.
THE WICKED + THE DIVINE writer KIERON GILLEN teams up with artist supernova STEPHANIE HANS (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE, Journey Into Mystery) for her first ongoing comic! DIE is a pitch-black fantasy where a group of forty-something adults have to deal with the returning, unearthly horror they only just survived as teenage role-players. If KIERON’s in a rush, he describes it as ‘Goth Jumanji’, but that’s only the tip of this critically acclaimed obsidian iceberg. Collects DIE #1-5.
