Official Press Release
Diamond Comics Distributors is sold out of BRIAN PULIDO'S LADY DEATH #1.
After receiving a flurry of reorders, the distributor has shipped out every
available copy of the first issue of the dark fantasy adventure, which
stormed into comic shops on February 12th.
LADY DEATH is leading a trend for debut issues from CrossGen Entertainment,
as-despite aggressive overprinting-inventory of BRATH #1, the first issue of
the barbaric adventure, and CHIMERA #1, the opening chapter of the
computer-enhanced sci-fi thriller, is also quickly dwindling.
"I'm honestly surprised at the reaction to the new LADY DEATH," stated
writer Brian Pulido. "Both retailers and readers have embraced it, which
feels great. At the same time, the critical reaction has also been strong,
and that's new for me. Mark Alessi and the entire CrossGen team are
challenging me to do my best, and I'm digging deep to make this a fresh take
on the medieval fantasy epic."
"After months and months of working on a new title, the sweetest words you
can hear is 'The print run sold out," said BRATH writer Chuck Dixon. "It
vindicates the entire team for all those weeks of suspense."
"I couldn't be more happy with how well CHIMERA has been received," said
co-writer/artist Brandon Peterson. "We overprinted issue #1 quite a bit, and
we still didn't fully predict the demand for it. I take that as a big vote
of confidence in how fans are enjoying my new art style, which I unveiled in
the first issue. I think of this book as a breakout work for me, and as the
series goes along, I'd like to think that it keeps getting better and
better. (Co-writer) Ron Marz and I are hard at work on the conclusion, so I
just hope that all the fans that want to will be able to track down issue
"The CrossGen team is thrilled by the reader and retailer reaction to our
trio of triumphs," stated CrossGen Director of Marketing and Communications
Bill Rosemann. "LADY DEATH, BRATH, and CHIMERA explore three different
genres in three wildly different ways but with one successful result. So
watch out for those second issues, because even though we overprinted, we
have a feeling that they were under ordered and will soon be following the
first issues right off the shelves!"
