Prints Charming – From Star Lord To Sabrina

Consider this an irregular feature looking at comic books that have gone to second prints or more. Now, it is worth remembering that some publishers plan second prints automatically, whether they are needed or not and will often just run extra first print copies in the initial run, set them aside and put a second print cover on them. It can be a marketing strategy, showing that there is confidence in the performance of the book, get a headline or three and use it to persuade retailers to up their orders of subsequent books. And comics news reporting sites become implicit in that market distortion every time we run them as a story.

So, as ever, in for a penny…


Legendary Star-Lord #4 gets a second printing…


So does Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina #1…


Death of Wolverine #3 and Alan Roberts' Killogy Halloween One Shot.

As does Masterplasty #1, with a second printing trimmed down in size to more easily fit the standard comic book shelf, bag, board etc. If you wanted the original oversized version, I'm sorry you've missed your chance.
