First issue of new Image Comics/Skybound title sells out, gets new printing

The debut of a new title from Robert Kirkman’s Image Comics imprint Skybound is always a highly-anticipated event in the comics market, and GHOSTED was no exception. The first issue of the ghost-heist caper by Joshua Williamson (MASKS AND MOBSTERS) and Goran Sudzuka (Y: The Last Man) has sold out and will receive a second printing. The reprint of GHOSTED #1 will be in stores on August 14, the same day as GHOSTED #2.

A classicOcean’s Eleven-style story with a supernatural twist, GHOSTED sets up master criminal Jackson T. Winters with the greatest challenge he’s ever faced: stealing a ghost from a haunted house. Even with a team of paranormal experts, this may be a job even Winters can’t pull off.

The first issue landed in stores on July 10 to considerable critical praise:

“Ghosted is a horror book you need to read because it is horror done right. It’s part caper, part ghost story, and completely hilarious.”

“GHOSTED #1 is a promising start to a different, but very cool new series…. It’s fun and extremely fresh.”
-Comic Vine

“Ghosted #1 from Joshua Williamson and Goran Sudzuka is every bit the pulpy thrill-ride promised by a series centering on a supernatural, ensemble heist. Well-executed from start to finish, this first issue makes use of pristine pacing, laying the foundation for a story that will grow more complex and intriguing with each turn of the page.”
-Multiversity Comics

The second printing of GHOSTED #1 (JUN138032) can be pre-ordered now, as can GHOSTED #2 (JUN130543). A special exclusive edition of GHOSTED #1 will be sold at Comic-Con International in San Diego, taking place from July 18-21.
