Media Release — Dynamite Entertainment is pleased to announce that Vampirella #1 has sold out at Diamond! There are no plans for a second printing at this time (although copies may still be available at your local retailer), but the Vampirella #1 Tim Sale cover (OCT108115E) is still available for re-order!
“I couldn’t be happier of the response to Vampirella,” says writer Eric Trautmann. “Approaching such an established and beloved character — particularly with an eye towards creating stories that are both familiar but also take some chances — is a daunting proposition, so I’m quite pleased that people are responding to it. Stick around; it’s going to get a lot crazier!”
“WOW! All of Dynamite’s hard work has paid off with the sell-out of Vampirella #1,” says Dynamite President Nick Barrucci. “We hoped for this, and it feels great having achieved a sell-out of the regular covers. Fortunately we have the Tim Sale covers (OCT108115E) still available.”
“Vampirella #1 is our strongest selling independent debut of 2010,” says VP of Purchasing of Midtown Comics Gahl Buslov. “It has been outselling many of the recent Marvel and DC #1 titles of the last couple months, even surpassing the sales of the seemingly unsurpassable Boys!”
