Astounding Wolf-Man #2 is in demand!
Official press release
Over the last year Robert Kirkman and Jason Howard have put a lot of work into both developing and promoting their new title, The Astounding Wolf-Man, and if the book's release proves anything - it's a hit.
Retailers received double their order - free of charge - and reports are coming in that it may not be enough. The demand created by the first issue's Free Comic Book Day presence as well as Kirkman's whirlwind five city signing tour has proven to be send copies flying off the shelves.
"Retailers and fans alike have been filling my inbox with praise for the second issue," Kirkman exclaimed. "It's always nerve wracking to launch a new title, but it looks like everyone really digs it. I couldn't be happier. I'm ecstatic that the double shipment has worked out as well as it has"
"It's really thrilling to have so many people react so positively to the book," added Howard. "Robert and I have been working on promoting the book intensely over the last year or so. Seeing it pay off so highly means a lot."
The Astounding Wolf-Man #1 (MAY071844) and #2 (MAY071843) are available in finer comic shops while supplies last.
