Official Press Release
DC Comics is pleased to announce that HAWKMAN # 1, the highest-selling debut
issue for March (according to Diamond Comics Distributors) has gone back to
press for a second printing less than a week after its initial instore date
of March 6. The issue is already sold out at the publisher.
“The sales of this premiere issue by the talented team of James Robinson,
Geoff Johns and Rags Morales exceeded our already-high expectations — and
print run,” said Bob Wayne, DC’s VP — Sales & Marketing . “We’re happy to
see retailers and fans warmly embracing the return of this classic character.
The additional printing will allow even more copies of the book to get into
more hands and make it that much easier for retailers to sell subsequent
issues to customers who are catching on to a series with momentum.”
Writer Geoff Johns added, “I’m extremely happy to see this. Everyone
involved in ‘Return of the Hawkman’ in JSA and in HAWKMAN#1 really worked
hard, and we’re all continuing to work hard, on Hawkman. He’s a character
that deserves it.”
HAWKMAN # 1 Second Printing (DEC015177) is scheduled to be in stores on Wednesday, March 20.
