What more can I say really, other that Image really, really under printed this, even knowing of Kieron Gillen’s selling power. Add in the spectacular artwork of Stephanie Hans and you’ve got a sure fire hit. That’s been proven 5 times now.
Anyway, you’ve seen the cover and you know about the premise, right?
Well, for those who haven’t, one more time with feeling:
Die is a pitch-black fantasy where a group of adults have to deal with the returning unearthly horror they barely survived as teenage role-players. The series is perhaps best described as “Goth Jumanji”—but that only captures a sliver of what you’ll find in this series where fantasy gets all too real.
To be fair, though, here’s Gillen’s take on this soaraway success:
We felt entirely sure that the fourth printing would be the last, but with another instant sell-out means we just have to go back again,” said Gillen. “We’ll be trying to print to match this shocking and humbling demand. High fives to everyone who’s joining us on this fantasy adventure.
Die #1 fifth printing will be available from Image on Wednesday April 17th.
