Image Reprints Negan Lives as Fire Power Burns Through 150,000 Copies

It shouldn't have been hard for The Walking Dead: Negan Lives #1 by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard from Image Comics/Skybound to sell out instantly, at the distributor level, as retailers got all their copies for free. But there was room for added, paid, orders on top of that and they have all sold out, sending it to a second printing for August 5th. It will still not be made available digitally and will only be available at comic book stores ordering through Diamond Comic Distributors.

On the same day, Image/Skybound released their Free Comic Book Day title Fire Power #1 by Robert Kirkman and Chris Samnee alongside the prequel trade paperback. I picked up all three, naturally. Now Image Comics has confirmed that had 150,000 copies of Fire Power #1 in circulation, which have similarly been wiped out. A 'proper' version of Fire Power #1 will be out alongside Fire Power #2, also on August 5th.
