The Spectre returns to the DCU in DAY OF VENGEANCE #1, which sold out at DC Comics over a week before arriving in stores on April 27.
Now, DC sends this issue back to press for a new printing featuring a powerful new color cover by comics legend Walter Simonson!
DAY OF VENGEANCE #1 Second Printing (FEB058476) reprints the story by Bill Willingham with art by Justiniano & Walden Wong. This new printing is scheduled to arrive in stores on May 25.
" This is wonderful news, but also a bit worrisome, " says Willingham. " I've just started writing the sixth and final issue of DAY OF VENGEANCE, and now the pressure's doubly on to make this end with a bang. I don't like to brag, but DAY OF VENGEANCE is a series that should come with safety belts - it's going to be a wild ride. The entire magic corner of the DC Universe is going to be turned over, crunched, munched and whacked upside the head a few times. "
" Like the other three miniseries spinning out of COUNTDOWN TO INFINITE CRISIS, sales momentum for DAY OF VENGEANCE is very strong, " says Bob Wayne, DC ' s VP - Sales. " Retailers should place their orders for this new printing as soon as possible, as well as increasing orders on the coming issues. "
DAY OF VENGEANCE #1 Second Printing (FEB058476) is available for order now and is scheduled to arrive in stores on May 25 with a cover price of $2.50 U.S. To ensure delivery on that date retailers must place orders by Sunday, May 15; please note that quantities will be limited and may sell out before May 15. DC recommends that retailers place orders as soon as possible to avoid missing out.
