Boom! Studios has announced next week’s Folklords #1 has already sold out at the distribution level. That doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to find a copy at your local comic shop. If you pre-ordered it, you should be good to go. The publisher has fast-tracked a second printing of the first issue so if you miss out, you can pick this up on November 27th, 2019. This will feature an all-new cover by Jorge Corona.
Folklords is written by Matt Kindt and illustrated by Matt Smith. It’s set in a world of magic and monsters where Ansel feels like an outsider haunted by visions of well-pressed suits and modern technology. On his 18th birthday, he must declare his Quest so he decides to seek out the Folklords, a legend that is only spoken about in hushed whispers. This is strictly forbidden, but that doesn’t stop him from setting out on a rogue quest. His life is on the line as this act is punishable by death, but he’s willing to risk it all to find the answers he seeks.
Eric Harburn, Senior Editor says:
The overwhelming early support Folklords has received from retailers has been an absolute joy to experience. Matts Kindt & Smith, along with Chris and Jim, have built a world and story that we believe will truly resonate with readers, and with this expedited second printing, featuring a beautiful new cover by Jorge Corona, everyone will get a chance to join in on Ansel’s epic adventure from the very beginning.
The first printing of Folklords #1 is set for release on November 13th, 2019.
