Official Press Release
Even with all-time high initial sales leading to a series record print run, INVINCIBLE #50 has sold out at a distribution level and a second printing is on the way.
"Fans sure do love it when the book hits the fan," said Kirkman. "Issue fifty altered the series in a way we haven't seen since Omni-Man's true nature was revealed and people have really taken notice. I think a lot of people will be even more surprised by what's next."
INVINCIBLE #50 was an oversized issue, featuring an extended lead and bonus stories revealing the origin of a Cecil Stedman and an all-new edition of Science Dog with art by INVINCIBLE co-creator Cory Walker. The limited edition second printing will be highlighted with a modified logo, emphasizing the cover's blood-splattered aftermath of the series altering battle. In addition, #51, the debut of the series' all-new direction and INVINCIBLE's new costume, will be supported by an overship, in an effort to ensure new found fans can obtain copies.
INVINCIBLE #50 2nd printing, a 48-page full color comic book for $4.99, is due in stores this July.
