Dynamo 5's first arc collected this October!

Official press release

Following DYNAMO 5's multiple sellouts, Image Comics and creators Jay Faerber and Mahmud A. Asrar have announced the first DYNAMO 5 collection will be a massive 176-page trade paperback with the low introductory price of $9.99.

"With issue four's sell-out and the series' rising orders, it's obvious there's a high demand for the trade paperback," said Faerber. "We decided to go with a special low price, as I want as many eyes to see this as possible, especially with the new arc kicking off the same day!"

The trade, collecting DYNAMO 5's first seven issues, begins with the death of the world's greatest hero, Captain Dynamo, and his enemies' subsequent onslaught upon on his unprotected city. With no one to stand against them, his widow locates his five illegitimate children, each of whom have inherited one of their father's super-powers. Can these total strangers come to terms with their powers, their father's legacy and each other as total chaos erupts?

"DYNAMO 5 has been a tremendous success thus far," adds Eric Stephenson, Executive Director of Image Comics. "Between the issues selling out and the ecstatic reviews it's obvious the series' reception is overwhelmingly positive. We don't doubt that the trade will get new readers onboard!"

DYNAMO 5, Vol. 1: POST-NUCLEAR FAMILY (AUG071992) will be available for order in the August issue of Diamond Previews and will go on sale October 3 alongside DYNAMO 5 #8 (AUG072006) .
