“Halloween: Nightdance” #1 sells out

Official Press Release


Chicago, IL. (Feb. 14, 2008) – Stefan Hutchinson’s true-to-history
story combined with artist Tim Seeley’s dark vision were enough to
sell all of Devil’s Due’s initial stock of Halloween: Nightdance #1.
The first issue of the new 4-issue miniseries premiered on shelves
February 6 and in less than a week has sold out on the distributor
level with Devil’s Due’s last stock on its way to satisfy orders.

“It’s great news that the books have found an audience so quickly, and
it’s a testament to the endurance of John Carpenter’s classic film
that the character of Michael Myers is still so popular in
2008-exactly 30 years after he first began terrorizing audiences,”
said Hutchinson. “Hopefully, this will lead to the release of many
more Halloween books, which is great, because we have a lot of stories
planned.”

Despite overprinting and healthy orders from Diamond Comic
Distributors at the distributor level, Halloween: Nightdance proved to
be understimated at the retailer level, where new orders are now being
filled as the last of the the issue’s first print run is shipped to
Diamond.

“We’re really glad to see Halloween: Nightdance exceeding expectations
with the first print now selling out,” said Devil’s Due President Josh
Blaylock.

In addition to issues left on comic book retailer shelves, copies of
Nightdance #1’s exclusive movie tribute cover also remain available
for a limited time at Devil’s Due’s webstore.

Devil’s Due is currently planning a second printing with details to be
announced soon.

Diamond order numbers for Halloween: Nightdance issue #2 and 3 are as follows:

HALLOWEEN NIGHTDANCE #2 SEELEY CVR A JAN08 3545

HALLOWEEN NIGHTDANCE #2 CUNNINGHAM CVR B JAN08 3546
