Image Comics' "Kill or Be Killed" Killing it On Reprints
The first and second issues sent back for more printings
“So much darker and more twisted than anybody guessed. It’s also freaking glorious and an awesome first issue of a promising new series.” —Nerdist
The hot new crime series KILL OR BE KILLED from bestselling creative team Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips (THE FADE OUT, CRIMINAL, FATALE) continues to fly off the shelves as the body count rises in each issue. Image Comics is thrilled to announce that the first and second issues are again being fast-tracked for third and second printings in order to keep up with increasing customer demand.
“This is overwhelming and a bit nuts,” said Brubaker. “Coming off our biggest hit, The Fade Out, I didn't expect we'd get an even bigger response to Kill Or Be Killed. Really excited to see how many readers and retailers are digging our warped take on the vigilante killer.”
KILL OR BE KILLED follows a young man who is forced to kill bad people and how he struggles to keep his secret as it slowly ruins his life and the lives of his friends and loved ones. Both a thriller and a deconstruction of vigilantism, KILL OR BE KILLED is a departure from Brubaker and Phillips’ noir roots and is unlike anything the creative team has ever done.
KILL OR BE KILLED #1 and #2 remain available for purchase across all digital platforms, including the Image Comics website (imagecomics.com), the official Image Comics iOS app, Comixology’s website (comixology.com), iOS, Android, and Google Play.
KILL OR BE KILLED #1, 3rd printing (Diamond Code AUG168132), KILL OR BE KILLED # 2, 2nd printing (Diamond Code AUG168133), and KILL OR BE KILLED #3 (Diamond Code AUG160641) will be available on Wednesday, October 12th, 2016. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, September 19th, 2016.
