Official Press Release
BATMAN #638, the stunning conclusion to the "Under the Hood" storyline, sold out at DC Comics on March 30, the day it arrived in stores.
Now, DC rushes this issue back to press. Written by Judd Winick with art by Doug Mahnke & Tom Nguyen, BATMAN #638 Second Printing features a startling new cover painted by Matt Wagner that reverses the point of view of the original cover art, showing it from the perspective of Batman.
"We're all thrilled that folks seem to be more than a little bit interested in this turn of events in the Batcave," says Winick. "I would be lying if I didn't admit that this just is the first dip on this roller coaster. We're just getting started!"
"Response to this storyline from the retailers and readers has been very strong," says Bob Wayne, VP - Sales. "With the Red Hood continuing to play a crucial role in upcoming issues, we urge retailers to order this new printing as soon as possible."
BATMAN #638 Second Printing (FEB058372) is available for order now and is scheduled to arrive in stores on April 27 with a cover price of $2.25 U.S. To ensure delivery on that date retailers must place orders by Sunday, April 17; please note that quantities will be limited and may sell out before April 17. DC recommends that retailers place orders as soon as possible to avoid missing out.
