Official Press Release
It's official - H-E-R-O worship has begun, as the first issue of this startling new DC Universe series by Will Pfeifer and Kano has sold out at the publisher just days after its in-store date of February 12.
DC has no plans to go back to press on the issue at this time.
"We knew we were trying to do something a little different with H-E-R-O, and I'm glad readers were willing to take a chance on it," says Pfeifer. "I'm having a great time writing the book, so I hope everyone sticks around for the long haul."
"We're pleased to see this modern take on a classic piece of DC history get such a strong response from the readers," says Vince Letterio, DC's Manager - Direct Sales. "As always, retailers should look at their orders for upcoming issues as soon as possible."
