San Diego, CA (April 17, 2006) - What do a reborn title, CliveBarker's latest, some transforming beasts, an art bonanza from AshWood and friends, and a couple vampire tales have in common? They'reall among the latest IDW Publishing titles to completely sell outthrough Diamond. In addition to the sell-outs IDW recentlyexperienced with SUPERMARKET #'s 1 & 2, the company announced todaythat the following books are also sold out through Diamond:
• 30 DAYS OF NIGHT: DEAD SPACE # 1 & 2
• ANGEL: OLD FRIENDS # 2 & 3
• CLIVE BARKER'S THE GREAT & SECRET SHOW #1
• FALLEN ANGEL # 1, 2, & 3
• SWALLOW BOOK TWO
• TRANSFORMERS: BEAST WARS #2
• UNDERWORLD: EVOLUTION
"It's great to see quality books met with such positive performance,"said IDW's Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall. "We printsignificantly more copies than the initial orders we receive fromDiamond. When we set a print run for a book, we try to print enoughcopies so that retailers will be able to re-order the books throughthe run of the series. These sell-outs caught us by a surprise, andsignal a nice upturn for the industry in general. I also hope thesenumerous sell-outs encourage retailers to similarly recognize thedemand for IDW's books and order accordingly. As much as I love tosee a title sell out, I like even more for anyone who wants an IDWcomic to be able to easily find it."
SWALLOW BOOK TWO will receive a second printing, along with a newcover from artist Ashley Wood. Retailers can order the secondprinting with item code # FEB06 806. The second print is due toarrive in stores on May 17, the same day the second printings ofSUPERMARKET arrive.
