Issue One Sells Out & Receives Second Print Run.
Image Comics announced this morning that LOW, the new series from writer Rick Remender (Black Science, Deadly Class) and artist Greg Tocchini (Uncanny X-Force) has sold out and is receiving a second print run to meet the demand from customers. The California-based publisher also revealed artwork from the second issue.
The creative team, who have collaborated on such books as The Last Days of American Crimes and Uncanny X-Force seem to be well on their way to a long successful run with this new series about an underwater dystopian world. Remender stated, “It’s a pleasure to work with Greg again, but to also see the incredible sales and fan reaction is icing on the cake, We have years worth of stories to tell in this world and the reader response secures our ability to realize them.”
In issue #2, the underwater city of Salus, humanity’s last refuge, is in jeopardy of running out of air. Poverty, disease, and corruption are rampant, and the church of Quantumology can offer no solace as powerful as hard cream, the strange drug that keeps the bleak realities at bay. Police Inspector Marik Caine has sunk low into that haze; should an opportunity for hope present itself, can he rise again?
The first printing of LOW #1 has completely sold out at the distributor level, but may still be available in comic stores. It is currently available digitally on the Image Comics website (imagecomics.com) and the official Image Comics iOS app, and on Comixology on the web (comixology.com), iOS, Android, and Google Play.
The second printing of LOW #1 (Diamond Code JUN148268) will release on 8/27.
LOW #2 (Diamond Code JUN140553) will hit stores on 8/27. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is 8/4.
