Brass Sun #1 Sells Out Of 4,000 First Print, V-Wars #2 Sells Out Of 9,500

brass-sun-1-edginton-culbard-rebellion-coverBrass Sun #1, the debut issue of Rebellion's first US-format mini-series, has sold out of its 4000 print run fast, on the day of publication. A second print of 1000 copies have also almost gone. Expect a third soon.

Following on the unexpected success of Dredd: Underbelly, this may prove a successful new business model for Rebellion, recreating 2000AD comics in US format – and just not telling anyone that's what you're doing.

And, you know, using nicer paper.

IDW's new fantasy sci-fi release V-Wars has also done pretty well. Following the Free Comic Book Day edition and the subsequent sold out V-Wars #1, V-Wars #2 released May 21st, has sold out as well on the distributor level. The intial print run was 9,500 with initial orders of 8,130. A second print run of 1,000 will be lined up for mid July… here's how it's looking.
