LOW reaches new depths
July 31, 2014
The first issue of Remender and Tocchini’s new series sells out, stunning artwork for issue #2 revealed
Rick Remender (BLACK SCIENCE, DEADLY CLASS) and artist Greg Tocchini (Uncanny X-Force, Last Days of American Crime) dive deeper into their underwater dystopian environment in LOW, with schools of absorbed fans of the new series following close behind. Issue #1 made a splash with readers, selling out instantly, and will torpedo into a second printing to meet customer demand. In order to quench the thirst for more LOW, we are pleased to reveal early artwork from issue #2.
In issue #2, the underwater city of Salus, humanity's last refuge, is in jeopardy of running out of air. Poverty, disease, and corruption are rampant, and the church of Quantumology can offer no solace as powerful as hard cream, the strange drug that keeps the bleak realities at bay. Police Inspector Marik Caine has sunk low into that haze; should an opportunity for hope present itself, can he rise again?
"It's a pleasure to work with Greg again, but to also see the incredible sales and fan reaction is icing on the cake,” said Remender. “We have years worth of stories to tell in this world and the reader response secures our ability to realize them."
The first printing of LOW #1 has completely sold out at the distributor level, but may still be available in comic stores. It is currently available digitally on the Image Comics website (imagecomics.com) and the official Image Comics iOS app, and on Comixology on the web (comixology.com), iOS, Android, and Google Play.
The second printing of LOW #1 (Diamond Code JUN148268) will release on 8/27.
LOW #2 (Diamond Code JUN140553) will hit stores on 8/27. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is 8/4.
