PORTLAND, Ore. 11.15.2019 — New York Times bestselling writers Scott Snyder (Batman, Justice League, American Vampire, Wytches) and Charles Soule (Curse Words, novels The Oracle Year, Anyone) and artist Giuseppe Camuncoli’s (The Amazing Spider-Man, Darth Vader, Hellblazer) new ongoing series Undiscovered Country continues to grow audience and impress comic shop retailers with customer buzz. It has been greenlit for a third printing in order to keep up with customer demand.
"Undiscovered Country has been an absolute hit at our stores," said Phil Boyle of Coliseum of Comics in Florida. "Image has been great working with us on the Comics Omnivore program and Undiscovered Country is another massive success for both Image and retailers alike!”
In Undiscovered Country, readers journey into an unknown region that was once the United States of America—a land that’s become shrouded in mystery and literally walled-off from the rest of the world for decades. A small expedition enters the former US in search of a cure to a humanity-ending pandemic. They travel inward and learn the secrets of what America has become, each member seeking their own form of truth in the undiscovered country.
Django Bohren of The Comics Place in Washington added: “We discussed Undiscovered Country on our weekly Perfectly Acceptable Podcast by Comics Place, and the concept seems to have resonated with our customers. It’s selling off the shelf faster than expected.”
Curtis Sullivan of Vault of Midnight in Michigan said also of the hype for the series: "We were chomping at the bit waiting for the release of Undiscovered Country. Both our staff and customers alike were beyond excited for a release from some of our favorite creators and the book did not disappoint. We can't wait for the next one."
Undiscovered Country #1 is available at comic book shops now.

Undiscovered Country #1 will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including the official Image Comics iOS app, Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
