Guarding the Globe #1 Gets Second Printing
Image Comics reprints sold out GUARDING THE GLOBE #1
GUARDING THE GLOBE #1 -- the book Major Spoilers gives 4 out of 5 stars and that Ain't It Cool News calls "aces" -- is sold out at the distribution level, so Image Comics is taking it back to press.
Cowritten by Robert Kirkman (THE WALKING DEAD) and Benito Cereno (INVINCIBLE PRESENTS: ATOM EVE & REX SPLODE) and drawn by newcomer Ransom Getty, the second printing of GUARDING THE GLOBE #1 will be in stores September 29.
"After all the fun we had with the teaser campaign, I couldn't imagine how much more exciting this book could be," says Kirkman, "but it keeps getting better and better! Thanks to all the fans who put us on top with this sellout!"
In GUARDING THE GLOBE, heroes both familiar and new struggle to protect Earth in Invincible's absence. As the Viltrumite War rages on within the pages of INVINCIBLE, the ranks of the Guardians of the Globe are suddenly depleted. The world is in danger, and the team is in search of new blood. It's the biggest recruitment drive since Omni-Man slaughtered the original members. But will it be in time to stop The Order? This series is a can't-miss action extravaganza, with one-page backups by Chris Giarrusso (G-MAN, Mini-Marvels) featuring the Guardians of the Globe that never were: Invincible, Spawn, Rick Grimes, Barack Obama, and Gary Popper!
GUARDING THE GLOBE #1 Second Printing (JUL108190), a 32-page full-color comic, will be on sale for $3.50 on September 29, 2010, the same day as GUARDING THE GLOBE #2 (JUL100443).
