Consider this an increasingly regular 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.
This is quite the rarity in modern monthly comics. Divinity, the new series from Matt Kindt and Trevor Hairsine for Valiant Entertainment has seen its #1 has gone to a fifth printing.
While Divinity #2 has gone to a third…
And Divinity #3 has gone to a second printing.
While the new launch from Boom! Studios, Arcadia #1 has also gone to a second printing.
Do with this information as thou wilt.
