SOLD-OUT SIMON DARK #1 GOES BACK TO PRESS FOR NEW, SECOND PRINTING
Simon Dark #1, the first issue of the new, monthly series from writer Steve Niles and artist Scott Hampton, has sold out at DC Comics and is going back to press for a second printing.
“I couldn’t be happier with the reaction to Simon Dark,” says Niles. “I really owe a lot to my co-creator, Scott Hampton, and a huge thanks to DC Comics for gambling on such a strange venture. It’s good to know that being a weird geek can pay off sometimes.”
