Official Press Release
With the Twentieth Century Fox film The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen set to open on July 11, DC Comics goes back to press for new printings of THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN VOLUME 2 BUMPER COMPENDIUM EDITION PARTS 3 AND 4 (STAR17990) and THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN VOLUME 2 #5 (OCT020806). Both are scheduled to reach stores on July 16.
"We decided to go back to press after receiving input from a number of retailers, and we're happy to help stores take advantage of the movie's release," says Bob Wayne, DC's VP - Sales & Marketing. "The League's popularity continues to grow, and that popularity is sure to spread to non-comics readers when they see the movie."
These new printings are accompanied by the new, sixth printing of THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN TP (STAR16504), with the same cover burst reading "Now a Major Motion Picture!" that appeared on the previous printing.
