PORTLAND, Ore. 8.1.2019 — Image Comics has fast-tracked a second printing of Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + The Divine) and Stephanie Hans’ Die #6 a week ahead of its release.
The upcoming issue is scheduled to hit stores on Wednesday, August 7 and—due to increasing demand—will ship sold-out at the distributor level.
The popularity of the hot new series, Die, has grown at breakneck speed with multiple sell-outs and reprints of every issue.
Die is a pitch-black fantasy where a group of adults have to deal with the returning unearthly horror they barely survived as teenage role-players. The series is perhaps best described as “Goth Jumanji”—but that only captures a sliver of what you’ll find in this series where fantasy gets all too real.
Die #6, second printing (Diamond Code JUN198682) will be available on Wednesday, August 28. The final order cutoff deadline for comic shop retailers is Monday, August 5.
Die is also available for purchase across many digital platforms, including the official Image Comics iOS app, Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
