Swallow Book Two Among Many Sold-Out IDW Publishing Titles
San Diego, CA (April 17, 2006)¡XWhat do a reborn title, Clive Barker's latest, some transforming beasts, an art bonanza from Ash Wood and friends, and a couple vampire tales have in common? They're all among the latest IDW Publishing titles to completely sell out through Diamond. In addition to the sell-outs IDW recently experienced with SUPERMARKET #'s 1 & 2, the company announced today that the following books are also sold out through Diamond:
¡§It's great to see quality books met with such positive performance,¡¨ said IDW's Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall. ¡§We print significantly more copies than the initial orders we receive from Diamond. When we set a print run for a book, we try to print enough copies so that retailers will be able to re-order the books through the run of the series. These sell-outs caught us by a surprise, and signal a nice upturn for the industry in general. I also hope these numerous sell-outs encourage retailers to similarly recognize the demand for IDW's books and order accordingly. As much as I love to see a title sell out, I like even more for anyone who wants an IDW comic to be able to easily find it.¡¨
SWALLOW BOOK TWO will receive a second printing, along with a new cover from artist Ashley Wood. Retailers can order the second printing with item code # FEB06 806. The second print is due to arrive in stores on May 17, the same day the second printings of SUPERMARKET arrive.
