Five More Image Titles Sell Out Simultaneously

DC
Entertainment and Warner Bros. have been developing a comic book
adaptation of DC Comics’ character Captain Marvel for years. Titled Billy Batson and the Legend of Shazam
for legal reasons, since Marvel has its own character with the same
name, the movie would follow the young Billy Batson, who can become the
superhero Captain Marvel after uttering the word “Shazam!” In 2009
alone, the movie went from being declared dead to starting fresh.

However, since then, the project has languished, though Dwayne Johnson hasn’t given up hope. Attached to the movie as Black Adam, the movie’s supervillain, Johnson told MTV that he’s still hopeful the movie will get made.

I haven’t let it go. I love that idea. I’ve always loved
the idea of playing Black Adam. In Hollywood, a lot of times when
something is in development, it just takes a lot of time. So it’s in
development hell right now. Who knows what’s going to happen with that.
Maybe, maybe not — I’m always here.

A Captain Marvel movie was made in 1941, and since then the character has appeared in animated form or in a 1970s live-action TV show, a trend that could continue. In August of last year, The LA Times reported that Captain Marvel could end up as another TV show instead of a movie. As usual, not much has happened since.

Wow! It seems like Image is on fire with their creator own books.  This is amazing to hear. I am very happy that Image is having some awesome success with their books. I can’t wait to pick up some of these great titles from Image but in the meantime you can find a review for all of them on the site.

Continuing the recent trend of
releasing new series to rave reviews and instant sellouts, Image Comics
has announced that BLUE ESTATE #1, GREEN WAKE #1, NONPLAYER #1, UNDYING
LOVE #1
and the second printing of THE INFINITE VACATION #1 have all
sold out at the distributor level and are going back to press.


Taken together, the five titles are an almost perfect example of the
diversity of creator-owned comics showcased by Image on a weekly basis:
BLUE ESTATE is a crime comic that leads readers through the tangled web
of mistaken identities, backstabbing conspirators and dubious alliances;
GREEN WAKE is a riveting horror tale set in a town plagued by a string
of grisly murders; NONPLAYER is a sci-fi/fantasy epic that takes
inspiration from mutli-player online roleplaying games; UNDYING LOVE is a
horror/action series set in modern day Hong Kong that mixes Chinese
folklore with vampire mythology; THE INFINITE VACATION is a high concept
sci-fi love story set in a parallel reality, where an app that allows
users to answer the age-old question of “what if” has changed everyone’s
lives forever.


“For years, Image has specialized in producing a wide variety of titles,
but we’ve just been blown away by the work these creators are bringing
us,” said Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson. “These are writers and
artists with singular visions, telling unique stories that you just
can’t find anywhere else, and I think that’s something audiences are
responding to more and more. We’re more than happy to keep ’em coming.”




Stephenson also urged direct market retailers to take a closer look at
the orders: “We set our print runs based off the orders we receive at
final order cut-off, but more and more frequently, we’re finding our
overprint estimates aren’t matching demand. Selling out is nice, but
honestly, it’s not helping anyone when the books aren’t on the stands.
Going back to press takes time, and I’d just as soon have the books
available.”


With that in mind, new printings of Image’s most recent sell-out titles
are available for order now, with the following ship dates:


FEB118120 BLUE ESTATE #1 (2nd Printing) $2.99 on sale 5/4


FEB118259 GREEN WAKE #1 (2nd Printing) $3.50 on sale 5/4


FEB118267 NONPLAYER #1 (2nd Printing) $2.99 on sale 5/11


FEB118097 UNDYING LOVE #1 (2nd Printing) $2.99 on sale 5/11


FEB118268 THE INFINITE VACATION #1 (3rd Printing) $3.50 on sale 5/11
