Strange Academy Gets 4th Printing, More For GI Joe, The Crow, Spawn

Lots of second printings coming through for GI Joe and The Crow from IDW, Arkworld from Devils Due, Spawn from Image Comics and Strange Academy and Thor from Marvel Comics. Last week's GI Joe #7 was a rather phenomenal comic book – for an issue of GI Joe, that is. It showed the five-year progression of one of the main characters dealing with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder after the regular events that such characters are subject to in the line of duty. The kind of thing usually never gets picked up on, let alone making an entire comic book out of. Anyway, it has sold out and gone to second printing along with a bunch of other GI Joe titles too and plenty more from IDW besides. Looks like they are going through a printing splurge.
