FATALE #1 reaches five printings

FATALE #1, the debut issue of the new “horror noir” comic book series by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips is going back to press for an unprecedented fifth printing. The issue first landed on comic book store shelves on January 4, and this latest printing (MAR128079) will be in stores on May 9.

“I couldn’t believe it when Eric told me the fourth printing had sold out immediately, because we set that print run thinking it would last for several months,” said writer Brubaker. “But it appears many retailers still just can’t keep the first issue in stock. So we are back to press one more time, because I want to be sure retailers can sell the other issues in the series.”

FATALE’s current issue is #4, which went on sale on April 4. Both FATALE #2 and #3 have had second printings.
