PrintWatch: Marvel Comics is sending Alien #1 by Phillip Kennedy Johnson and Salvador Larocca for a second printing, with the news that Diamond Comics Distributor has sold out of the print run, over 300,000 copies. Which puts it well ahead of anything else published in comic book stores in March – aside from Keanu Reeves' BRZRKR #1. The second printing will be out on the 28th of April with a new cover by Salvador Larocca. This will be one week after Alien #2 is published. The second printing also has a 1:25 variant of the cover.
