Crossed +100: Mimic Sells Out, Does Not Go to Second Printing

Crossed +100: Mimic #1 launched today — the long-awaited return to Bleeding Cool's publisher Avatar Press's Crossed franchise, created by Garth Ennis, taken 100 years into the future by Alan Moore and now having Christos N. Gage, Patrick Shand, Emiliano Urdinola, and Raulo Caceres. Each issue is double sized with two full-length stories.

And, it seems, it has burnt through all the copies provided to Diamond Comic Distributors.

However, unlike the usual announcements regarding these things, there will not be a second printing. What your retailer has on the shelf (or behind the counter; it is still Crossed, after all) is it.

This is aside from the versions of the comics with additional exclusive comic book pages created for a pre-Kickstarter campaign that we talked about here.
