A day after Supergirl #1 and #0 both sold out within one day of reaching stores on Wednesday, DC Comics is rushing Supergirl #1 back to press for a new printing!

Supergirl #1 Second Printing features a story written by Jeph Loeb and illustrated by Ian Churchill and Norm Rapmund. The new printing features a pencil version of the cover by Michael Turner.

"I couldn't be happier for the team, but mostly for Supergirl herself," Loeb said. "I've said before that a good idea is a good idea -- and Supergirl is a great idea. Our hope is that readers and retailers will take the time to get to know her, just like the heroes and villains in the DCU are doing in the story."

Supergirl #1 Second Printing is available for order now and is scheduled to arrive in stores on Sept. 7 with a cover price of $2.99

Mecca Comics, founded in 2004, has announced it will become Century Comics with all books solicited after Sept. 1, 2005.

John May, publisher, said that the name change is also a new direction for the company.

"The name Mecca was designed to convey the essence of our first line of comics based on Brother Destiny and other costumed superheroes that graced our first publications," May said. Since then, May said, "The company focus has changed form the standard, 32 page superhero comic to an eclectic series of graphic novels featuring a combination of new material as well as some classic material represented by some of the industryıs true statesmen."

Century Comics is publishing an all-new three part, fully-illustrated autobiography by veteran Dick Ayers. Also new is Rich Bucklerıs How To Be A Dynamic Comic Book Artist.

"We're also very pleased to be working with Jack Katz, the creator of The First Kingdom.² May said. Century is producing a series of four 200-page graphic novels that will reprint the First Kingdom storyline in its entirety.

It was also announced that Charlie Novinskie has been named as president of Century Comics. Novinskie served as sales and promotions manager for Topps Comics in the 1990s and currently serves as a board member for A Commitment To Our Roots (ACTOR), a non-profit organization that helps comic creators during their time of need.

"Being involved with Century Comics is a great opportunity for me," Novinskie said. "My life in comics seems to revolve around golden and silver age creators, which is fine with me since I grew up with those classic comics in the sixties.

"I worked with the Kirbyverse books while at Topps Comics and worked with some of the greats‹Kirby, Ayers, Ditko‹it was like comic heaven. Now I have the opportunity to work with Ayers and Buckler and Katz, well, it's like a dream come true. We will continue to grow slowly so that we can ensure being around years from now, still publishing books that everyone can enjoy."
