Official Press Release
The recently debuted Inhuman #1 has already rocketed up the sales charts, completely selling out at the distributor level and becoming the week’s best-selling digital comic on the Marvel app. Today, Marvel is proud to announce that this month’s highly anticipated Amazing Spider-Man #1 will NOW also contain the FULL ISSUE of the blockbuster Inhuman #1 – at NO EXTRA COST! There’s no better way to show the comic industry the Inhumans are here to stay – and now is the perfect chance to jump on board one of the hottest new series!
A sprawling, epic drama filled with action and suspense – Inhuman sees the once secretive race thrust into the forefront of the Marvel Universe for the first time. Thousands of new super-powered Inhumans have powered up all across the globe, leaving Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Spider-Man, Wolverine and the rest of the Marvel Universe to react to this new race of strange beings! Inhuman #1 marks an unprecedented commercial and critical debut for a series which has not had their own title in over 10 years.
The new Inhuman series is poised to set the stage for the next phase of the Marvel Universe and with over 500,000 copies of the highly anticipated Amazing Spider-Man #1 already pre-ordered, Marvel is thrilled to get Inhuman #1 into the hands of as many fans as possible! Now, fans anxiously awaiting the triumphant return of Peter Parker can experience the exciting Inhuman #1 absolutely free – just in time for Inhuman #2 in May!
“Originally we planned to go right to a second printing of Inhuman #1 following the sell out,” says Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel. “But we realized that we’d get a much bigger impact by representing it with what will undoubtedly be one of the best-selling issues of all time. With Amazing Spider-Man #1 already over 500,000 copies pre-ordered, we’re excited to bring Inhuman #1 to all those fans.”
Amazing Spider-Man #1 will now ship with over 70 story pages, reprinting the full contents of Inhuman #1 at the end of the issue. With Peter Parker’s return already garnering buzz from all corners of the entertainment industry and Inhuman setting the stage for the next phase of the Marvel Universe – retailers are strongly encouraged to check their orders to meet demand. Amazing Spider-Man #1 hits comic shops and digital devices on April 30th.
