Official Press Release
BERKELEY, CA – April 11, 2007 — The first chapter of FRANK FRAZETTA’S DEATH DEALER arrived in comic book stores across the country this morning and was completely sold out 6 hours later. Despite an incredibly healthy overprint, the demand for this issue has been greater than anticipated and the issue has sold out. Image Comics is considering a second print run.
“It is such a great feeling to have fans respond so well to a story that we have all been devoted to for so long,” says color artist Jay Fotos “We wanted to do Death Dealer right. Frazetta’s approved it and now the fans have as well. Thanks to all of the retailers and fans.”
FRANK FRAZETTA’S DEATH DEALER has delivered Frazetta fans what they’ve been begging for for years: an story worthy of the legendary character. FRANK FRAZETTA’S DEATH DEALER is a dark fantasy epic that tells the story behind Frazetta’s enduring archetype. The story centers on the iconic character’s battle to keep war from destroying the land of Iparsia.
Image Comics advises that retailers check their orders for the rest of the series as it continues to attract readers. FRANK FRAZETTA’S DEATH DEALER #2 (MAR071838) and FRANK FRAZETTA’S DEATH DEALER #3 (APR071867) are available for order increase.
