Official Press Release
BERKELEY, CA — April, 2006 — Five Eisner Award nominations.
Three issues sold out. Still only $1.99, the best deal in comics.
FELL is having the best week ever.
Image Comics has announced it is going back to print on three
separate issues of FELL – new printings on the two most recent issues
(#3 and #4) along with a FOURTH printing for FELL #1. In keeping with
previous re-printings, each new printing of FELL will feature the
same cover and content, with no variants.
Aside from its amazing creative team and universal praise, what sets
FELL apart is its unique format – coming in at only $1.99 for 24
pages, the ultra-compact story delivers more bang for the buck and is
pioneering what is quickly being nicknamed the “FELL Format” comic book.
“It’s absurd that we are doing another printing of a $1.99 comic
featuring a nun wearing a Richard Nixon mask. But as long as
retailers keep selling ’em, we’ll keep printing ’em,” said Ellis.
“And to think some retailers accused us of leaving money on the
table. We seem to be hoovering it up pretty damn good, no?”
To top off its incredible sales velocity, it was also announced that
FELL had received FIVE separate Eisner Award nominations – Best
Continuinig Series, Best New Series, Best Writer, Best Painter/
Multimedia Artist and Best Lettering. The Eisner Awards winners will
be announced at this year’s San Diego Comic Con International.
FELL is the first book from Image Comics to encompass this new
format, but not the last. Debuting in June will be the second “Fell-
Format” book, CASANOVA, a sci-fi espionage epic by Matt Fraction
(Punisher: War Journal) and Gabriel Ba (Rock’n’Roll).
Don’t miss out on one of the hottest books on the stands, advance
orders are available now for FELL #5 (NOV051740), which is scheduled
to be in stores late May, the same time as these new printings. Also,
still available for order is the 3rd Printing of FELL #2 (DEC058380).
These new printings – FELL 2ND PRINTING #3 (FEB068169), FELL 2ND
PRINTING #4 (FEB068170) and FELL 4TH PRINTING #1 (FEB068168) – are
available now for advance re-order. Your local retailer can contact
their Diamond Customer Service Representative for ordering.
