New revenge action series generates early fan devotion, goes into second printing
The first issue of the highly anticipated new series DEAD BODY ROAD by writer Justin Jordan (LUTHOR STRODE) and artist Matteo Scalera (BLACK SCIENCE) has already garnered critical acclaim and sold out at the distributor level. This action-packed revenge story begins with a bloody bank robbery, and escalates to one man's mission to find out why his wife died in it... and execute everyone responsible.
Praise for DEAD BODY ROAD #1:
“This is a story unsettling enough to be compelling and memorable without any unnecessary flash or sizzle.” —Doug Zawisza, Comic Book Resources
“If the first issue is any indication, this series promises lots of action and that is something to be very pumped up for.” —Benjamin Bailey, IGN
“This is the type of comic that punches you in the gut with its storytelling. Getting punched in the gut may not sound fun but this comic absolutely is.”
—Tony Guerrero, Comic Vine
“Dead Body Road #1 is a great debut by a talented creative team. They've managed to take a fairly stock concept and turn it into something worth reading… As long as the action and intrigue stay at high levels, Dead Body Road will definitely be a winner.” —Pierce Lydon, Newsarama
“An excellent start, Dead Body Road #1 is difficult to put down once you get started. I can't wait to see what happens next in the series.” —Jorge Solis, Bloody Disgusting
DEAD BODY ROAD #1 has completely sold out at the distributor level, but may still be available in comic stores, and is currently available digitally on the Image Comics website (imagecomics.com) and the official Image Comics iOS app, as well as on Comixology on the web (comixology.com), iOS, Android, and Google Play.
Image Comics is pleased to announce that this first issue will be going back to print to meet customer demand. The second printing of DEAD BODY ROAD #1 (Diamond Code NOV138092) will release on 1/22/2014.
