PORTLAND, Ore. 4.8.2021 — Fan enthusiasm for Scott Snyder and Tony S. Daniel’s hot new series Nocterra has spread like wildfire with the second issue sparking an instant sell-out, at the distributor, upon its release yesterday. A rush reprint of Nocterra #2 is being fast tracked by Image Comics in order to keep up with the series’ frenetic reorder momentum.
“We’re sincerely blown away by the enthusiasm you all continue to show for Nocterra! We promise you that we’ll do our best to thank you by making this the best book we can for as long as you’ll take this (twisted) ride with us,” said Snyder. “Just wait until you see what happens in issue 3... Truckers vs monsters vs serial killers forever!”
Daniel added: “We are so grateful for the enthusiastic response to Nocterra. When you leave other big projects on the table to take on the unknown, it takes a lot of belief in yourself and the project itself. Scott and I believe this will truly be a wonderful series that will build upon itself as time goes on and get cooler and cooler as we go. We also believe you, the fans, will love what we have in store for you as the series progresses. We get more excited with each issue, and when the first two issues sell out on opening day, it really fills our hearts with gratitude and joy. Thanks for trusting us to deliver what Scott and I know is going to be an amazing ride for all.”
Ten years after the world is plunged into an everlasting night that turns all living creatures into monstrous shades, the only way to survive is to stay close to artificial light.
In Nocterra #2, Val brings her passengers to their first truckstop—the Neon Grove! But with her brother getting worse by the minute, and dark forces in hot pursuit, our ferryman finds herself faced with a grave decision.
Nocterra #2, second printing (Diamond Code FEB219271) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, May 5.
Nocterra #1, second printing (Diamond Code JAN219075) and Nocterra #1 Glow in the Dark variant (Diamond Code JAN210020) are both available now at comic book shops.
Nocterra is also available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play
