IDW Publishing on Monday announced a raft of sell-outs, including Swallow Book Two, which will receive a second printing.

The second printing will include a new cover by Ashley Wood and will be in stories on May 17, the same day as the second printings for Supermarket #1-2.

Other books sold out through Diamond include:

* 30 Days of Night: Dead Space #1-2.

* Angel: Old Friends #2-3.

* Clive Barker's The Great & Secret Show #1.

* Fallen Angel #1-3.

* Transformers: Beast Wars #2.

* Underworld: Evolution.

"It's great to see quality books met with such positive performance," said IDW's Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall. "We print significantly more copies than the initial orders we receive from Diamond. When we set a print run for a book, we try to print enough copies so that retailers will be able to re-order the books through the run of the series.

"These sell-outs caught us by a surprise, and signal a nice upturn for the industry in general. I also hope these numerous sell-outs encourage retailers to similarly recognize the demand for IDW's books and order accordingly. As much as I love to see a title sell out, I like even more for anyone who wants an IDW comic to be able to easily find it."


* There was no issue of The Thing solicited by Marvel for July. Asked if the book had been canceled, Marvel's Jim McCann said, "There is not an issue of Thing solicited past issue 8 at this time."

* Image Comics has announced it is going back to print on for second printings of Fell #3 and #4, as well as a fourth printing for #1. In keeping with previous re-printings, each new printing of Fell will feature the same cover and content, with no variants.
