That Texas Blood and Ludocrats #2 Get Second Printings

The third second printing shout out in two days sees Ludocrats #2 by Kieron Gillen, Jim Rossignol, Jeff Stokely, Tamra Bonvillain and That Texas Blood #1 by Chris Condon and Jacob Phillips, both from Image Comics both going back to the printing mill for seconds, with publication scheduled for July the 22nd. It's a sign, to some degree, that the grinding of the machine is beginning to return to normal. Comic books sell, sell well, sell out, and a second printing can be part of the planned promotional process as well, sometimes using the same guts of a comic book as created for the first printing, set to one side, and then a new cover with new indicia slapped on the top. Publishers policy will vary of course. Here are the solicitations for the two new printings.

That Texas Blood and Ludocrats #2 Get Second Printings

(W) Chris Condon (A) Jacob Phillips

CRIMINAL colorist and first time solo artist JACOB PHILLIPS and writer CHRIS CONDON break onto the scene with a brand-new ongoing series! Like Paris, Texas gut-punched by No Country for Old Men, this mature neo-Western crime series kicks off when the search for a casserole dish leads to a dark and tense confrontation on Sheriff Joe Bob Coates' 70th birthday.

"CHRIS & JACOB pull off something remarkable here. A vivid and bright story that nails a thorough sense of foreboding and darkness. A shocking amount of talent for a duo so fresh to comics!" -CHIP ZDARSKY (SEX CRIMINALS, Daredevil) SRP: $3.99
