Second printings of first issues aren’t entirely uncommon. Third printings? That usually means there’s some buzz going on and extended demand. Gideon Falls #1 gets it’s third printing on May 16th, which happens to be when the second printing of #2 comes out. Ever get the feeling a comic was back ordered?
Official PR follows:
The hot new series, GIDEON FALLS, from the creative team behind Green Arrow and Old Man Logan—New York Times bestselling and Eisner Award-winning writer Jeff Lemire (ROYAL CITY, DESCENDER) and critically acclaimed artist Andrea Sorrentino—is being rushed back to print again. Issue #1 of the dread-inducing series is being rushed back to print a third time in order to keep up with the frenzied customer demand.
GIDEON FALLS is a series that explores the lives of a reclusive young man obsessed with a conspiracy in the city’s trash, and a washed up Catholic priest arriving in a small town full of dark secrets. At the heart of the town’s secrets is the mysterious legend of the Black Barn, an otherworldly building that is alleged to have appeared in both the city and the small town, throughout history, bringing death and madness in its wake.
GIDEON FALLS #1 remains available for purchase across all digital platforms, including the Image Comics website (imagecomics.com), the official Image Comics iOS app, Comixology’s website (comixology.com), iOS, Android, and Google Play.
GIDEON FALLS #1, 3rd printing (Diamond Code MAR188202) and GIDEON FALLS #2, 2nd printing (Diamond Code MAR188168) will be available on Wednesday, May 16th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, April 23rd.
