SEX CRIMINALS and THREE Keep Flying Off the Shelves

December 12, 2013

Two critically acclaimed series both go back to print

The first, second, and third issues of the hugely popular SEX CRIMINALS series, created by Matt Fraction (SATELLITE SAM, Hawkeye) and Chip Zdarsky (Prison Funnies), have sold out at the distributor level yet again and are already slated for a reprinting. SEX CRIMINALS #1 only just released on 9/25 this year, but quickly caught the attention of critics and readers alike. Time magazine dubbed SEX CRIMINALS the #1 comic series of the year, Multiversity Comics named it Best New Series of 2013, Comics Alliance recognized Chip Zdarsky among the Best Artists of 2013, and actor Wil Wheaton calls it “one of the best things I’ve ever read, period.” SEX CRIMINALS #2 is heading into its third printing and issue #3 into its second printing.

Kieron Gillen and Ryan Kelly's THREE has been heralded by Comic Book Resources as “a spectacular new series that defies expectation with its astounding depth and rigor” and championed by Multiversity Comics as “a tribute to a long-forgotten people. Three is a rebellion against the swallowing void of history by way of enlightenment.” THREE #1 and #2 are both heading back for reprinting.

SEX CRIMINALS #1, #2, and #3, as well as THREE #1 and #2, have all completely sold out at the distributor level, but may still be available in comic stores. They are currently available digitally on the Image Comics website ( and the official Image Comics iOS app, as well as on Comixology on the web (, iOS, Android, and Google Play.
