Official Press Release


#1 is sold out at the distributor. Image Comics is responding with a

second printing of the mind-bending first issue. Mike Allred's highly

anticipated return to his signature creation has generated an

undeniable buzz in the industry.

"When a comic book legend like Mike Allred steps back into the game,

it gets everyone's attention," says Image Comics' Executive Director

Eric Stephenson. "MADMAN ATOMIC COMICS #1 is both a fantastic jumping-

on point for new readers and an exciting new chapter for longtime

Madman fans. Allred is at the top of his ginchy game."

MADMAN is an exquisitely illustrated superhero romp with a light-

hearted mood all its own. Allred is adored by hipsters and fan-boys

alike, and MADMAN has cemented his place in comics' pantheon of

legendary creators. MADMAN joins the ranks of Spider-Man, Hellboy,

and Spawn as among America's most beloved comics icons.

MADMAN ATOMIC COMICS is a new series starring everyone's favorite

back-from-the-dead hitman, Frank Einstein, as he ventures into a new

era of MADMAN madness and fun. Hold on tight, kids! It's a wild

reality-warping ride!

The second printing of MADMAN ATOMIC COMICS #1 (MAR078092) features

an all-new cover by Mike Allred, and is available for order now.

MADMAN ATOMIC COMICS #2 (MAR07184) will be on stands May 2nd. MADMAN

ATOMIC COMICS #3 (APR071872) will be on stands June 6th. Both are

available for order increase. Retailers may order these issues by
