Dynamite Will Not Overprint Disney's Scar & Will Only Collect In 2025

Dynamite Entertainment has now told retailers that they will not be overprinting the first four issues of Disney Villains: Scar #1 at least.

Dynamite Entertainment has grabbed a Disney comics license for some very specific titles, Darkwing Duck, Gargoyles, Maleficent and now Disney Villains: Scar by Chuck Brown and Trevor Fraley, from The Lion King. Sales of some of the titles, especially the first two, were rather astronomical. Final Order Cut-Off has just landed for Scar #1, but it may be about to become a little more collectable than the others.

Because Dynamite Entertainment has now told retailers that they will not be overprinting the first four issues at least. The orders that they receive – now locked for the first issue – will be all they print.  Shops will get only what they ordered by the FOC date, Dynamite will have a few additional copies to cover any damages, but then that's it. Dynamite has also stated that the comics in question won't even be collected for another two years, in 2025. This means if anyone wants a copy of Scar #1, it will be… well, harder than Gargoyles or Darkwing Duck. And retailers might want to take a second look at their orders for the second issue.
