July 8th, 2008, LOS ANGELES – Released on April 30th to critical acclaim, Hercules: The Thracian Wars #1 and Caliber: First Canon of Justice #1 have been big hits with retailers and fans. Despite efforts to satisfy the public with extra copies of Hercules and Caliber printed in case of a sellout, demand continues to grow. For this reason, Radical Publishing is pleased to announce that a second printing is on the way for both titles.
Barry Levine, Radical Publishing President and Publisher ,notes, “In the past week, while promoting our upcoming issue #3’s of Herculesand Caliber, we have received numerous calls and emails from both fans and retailers alike wondering if we are going to do a second print on our issue #1s. We’ve heard the message loud and clear and are pleased to say that a second printing of both titles is underway. Being a new publisher, I’m sure many retailers didn’t expect the kind of sales our titles would produce. As a result, a lot of people under-ordered and were unable to place reorders due to the overwhelming demand. These limited quantity second printings will enable fans who have missed out the first time around to see how these epics began.”
Hercules: The Thracian Wars #1 2nd print and Caliber: First Canon of Justice #1 2nd print will retail for $2.99 and are available to order from Diamond Comics Distributors. Each cover has its own Diamond order code to provide retailers with the ability to choose the number of each cover variant they want to order. This will be an option for all books published by Radical, starting in the August 2008 issue of Diamond’s Previews.
