James Tynion IV and Martin Simmonds’ conspiracy theory espionage series’ The Department of Truth gets yet another printing of its debut issue. And that first printing sold over 100,000 even before a second, third and fourth printing to keep up with demand.
I dare say the recent news that it’s going to be adapted for TV by Chernobyl production company, Sister, is helping boost this extra demand, which is good news for comics.
“In The Department of Truth, readers meet Cole Turner, a man who has studied conspiracy theories all his life—but never prepared to discover that all of them are true. From the JFK Assassination to Flat Earth Theory and Reptilian Shapeshifters, one organization has been covering them up for generations. What is the deep, dark secret behind the Department of Truth?”
The Department of Truth #1, fifth printing will be available on Wednesday, May 12th from Image Comics.
