Official Press Release
Marvel Comics announces that PHOENIX-ENDSONG #2 has completely sold out from Diamond Comics and that backorders once again are mounting, at the same blistering pace as issue #1…and just like that first issue, #2 will return to store shelves in the form of a new Limited Edition Variant.
Says Marvel's Director of Sales, David Gabriel, "This is one of those series where the story is so compelling, and the illustrations so stunning, that we couldn't wait for the retailers and fans to see the book. Now that it's gotten out there and blowing out of stores, it's confirmed what we've always known internally: we had a phenomenal piece of art on our hands. Prepping variant printings of issue #1, and now issue #2, was an incredibly easy decision."
PHOENIX-ENDSONG is written by award-winning film writer and director Greg Pak, and fully realized on the page with the brilliant art of Greg Land, with inks by Matt Ryan and colors by Justin Ponsor.
Senior Editor Mike Marts couldn't be more proud of the book, "Both readers and retailers continue to prove there's extreme demand for this series. Hats off to writer Greg Pak and artist Greg Land for delivering yet another sellout issue!"
The Limited Edition Variant printing of PHOENIX-ENDSONG #2, featuring a re-colored cover with Phoenix in her green costume, hits stands on 2/23/2005, the same day as issue #3.
