PORTLAND, OR 1.24.2019 — Image Comics is pleased to announce that New York Times bestselling creator Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + The Divine) and artist Stephanie Hans’ Die #1 will be rushed to a third printing in order to keep up with growing demand.
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 #1, 3rd printing (Diamond Code DEC188797) will be available on Wednesday, Feb 20. The final order cutoff deadline for comic shop retailers is Monday, Jan 28.
Die #2, 2nd printing (Diamond Code DEC188162) will be available on Wednesday, Feb 13.
Die #3 Cover A by Hans (Diamond Code DEC180240) and Die #3 Cover B by Bartel (Diamond Code DEC180241) will be available on Wednesday, Feb 6.
Fans can also subscribe to receive the series delivered by mail within the domestic U.S. on Image Direct.
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.

“Do you wish that IT had fewer clowns luring in sewers with balloons and more RPG sessions that cause kids to disappear for several years?
