I'd like to think that we played a small role in this books success with our constant promoting of the issue which received a great review from our own Rick Jones. It should be interesting to see if Boom! can break it's own record either with the second issue or with The Traveler (the next Stan Lee project from Boom!).
BOOM! Studios is proud to announce that STAN LEE'S SOLDIER ZERO #1 has sold over 24,000 copies through all channels and broken all records for the five-year-old publisher, making STAN LEE'S SOLDIER ZERO #1 the bestselling BOOM! Studios comic of all time.
Debuting last week to resounding critical acclaim, STAN LEE'S SOLDIER ZERO #1 can be found at your local comic shop (www.comicshoplocator.com), including special covers at Hastings Entertainment and Midtown Comics. Both Diamond Comic Distributors and Haven Distributors have seen record reorder activity for the book.
STAN LEE'S SOLDIER ZERO #1 marks the first of three new ongoing superhero series from the partnership between BOOM! Studios and Stan Lee. STAN LEE'S THE TRAVELER written by Mark Waid with art by Chad Hardin will be shipping in November followed by STAN LEE'S STARBORN written by Chris Roberson with art by Khary Randalph shipping this December.
Fan and critical response to STAN LEE'S SOLDIER ZERO has been phenomenal with stores selling out across the country. The first issue is written by DOCTOR WHO's Paul Cornell with art by Javier Pina.
SOLDIER ZERO #1 is written by Paul Cornell (ACTION COMICS, DOCTOR WHO) with art by Javier Pina (SUPERMAN) and ships with seven covers, including A & B covers in a 50/50 split by Trevor Hairsine and Dave Johnson respectively, a 1-in-25 incentive by Phil Noto, 1-in-50 Undressed Trevor Hairsine Variant, 1-in-75 Undressed Dave Johnson Variant, 1-in-150 Undressed Phil Noto Variant and a special 1-in-300 Stan Lee signed variant cover with all new cover art by Kalman Andrasofszky.
