Diamond is currently reporting that Top Cow and Image Comics' Battle of the Planets #1 has completely sold out of its print run through the distributor. The title debuted into retail stores nationwide on July 10th.
"Well, it's a good sign when a book sells out about an hour after it's shipped," says Top Cow President Matt Hawkins. "We overprinted the book significantly and it appears even with the overprint we underestimated the demand for the book. Since the first story arc is only three books we're evaluating whether to create a 2nd printing of the first issue or simply make the trade for the first three issues available far sooner than we had originally intended. I'd love to hear feedback from retailers on what they would rather see."
