Faster than last month’s sell-out of the first issue, Loners #2 has sold out at the distributor’s level one day after its release, according to a Marvel Comics press release. As with issue #1, Marvel is not planning on reprinting the issue, but copies may still be available at comic book stores and other retailers. The full press release follows.
Official Press Release
Marvel is pleased to announce that The Loners #2, the new limited series spinning out of Runaways, has sold out at Diamond. Written by C.B. Cebulski and penciled by Karl Moline, this series is now 2-for-2 with sell outs at the Diamond level. Featuring teen heroes who form a support group to deal with their lives as superheroes, The Loners has thrilled readers with its personal tales of tragedy, triumph and your favorite cult-classic Marvel heroes!
“It’s always a good morning when you wake up and open your e-mail to find news of a sell out… especially on a Thursday, the day after your book went on sale!” said Cebulski upon hearing of the sell out. “Wow! I could not be happier with fan and retailer reaction to Loners. With Jason Pearson’s eye-catching covers pulling people in, Karl Moline and Christina Strain’s amazing interior work seals the deal for fans of Marvel’s newest team of teen heroes!”
With more of The Loners being tempted to put their superhero costumes back on, and a certain member of Generation X making a huge impression on our heroes, upcoming issues of The Loners will be even more surprising! Marvel urges retailers to check their orders for upcoming issues of this hit series! Please note that Loners #2 may still be available at the retailer level.
