Official Press Release

BOOM! Studios is proud to announce today that THE ANCHOR #1 has sold out in less than one week.

Fans should keep in mind, while Diamond Comic Distributors is completely sold out, first printings of THE ANCHOR #1 may still be found at a direct market retailer near you.

The second printing of THE ANCHOR #1 is available to order immediately through BOOM!’s new relationship with Haven Distributors, and is also immediately available to order through Diamond Comic Distributors. Haven Distributors will have THE ANCHOR #1 available to ship to retailers next week, while Diamond orders will hit retailers at the end of November.

The second print of THE ANCHOR #1 carries a Diamond Code of SEP098046 and a Haven Code of ANCHBOO001A.

THE ANCHOR #1 second print features a negative variant of Rafael Albuquerque's B cover for issue one.

Hitting store shelves last week, THE ANCHOR #1 has garnered numerous accolades from critics across all spectrums:

“Don't you just love when a new comic you've been looking forward to finally come out...and exceeds all your high hopes?" – Project Fanboy

"This is a great read, quick to get through, yet immense in it's imagery. BOOM! Studios has been putting out some quality work, which, for being such a young company, is awesome. I've begun to look forward more to what they're putting out next than what larger companies are doing with their established characters. Keep it coming!"– Comics Bulletin

"If you're looking for something new I highly recommend you check out the Anchor #1" – Cammy's Comic Corner

“...quite effective...” – Eye On Comics

THE ANCHOR #1 features the first installment of this epic ongoing series written by Phil Hester, with ominous interior art by Brian Churilla. The first printing shipped with two covers in a 50/50 split and a third cover that was offered as a 1-in-10 incentive.

This past month, BOOM! Studios announced that in addition to Diamond carrying BOOM!'s second prints, Haven Distributors will also be carrying all BOOM! second prints. Retailers needing more information on how to order from Haven Distributors can call 1-877-HAVEN-50 or sign up on their website here: http://www.havendistro.com/retailers.html
