Top Cow Productions is pleased to announce that all three Compendium edition trade paperbacks have sold out at the distributor level. The three initial Compendium releases – Witchblade Compendium Volume 1 Trade Paperback, The Darkness Compendium Volume 1 Trade Paperback, and Tomb Raider Compendium Trade Paperback – were released in December to overwhelmingly positive acclaim. All three volumes were overprinted, but quickly sold out starting with the Witchblade Compendium Volume 1 Trade Paperback which has also been nominated for a Diamond "Gem Award".
Additionally Top Cow has announced that they have gone back to press on all three Compendium editions and additional inventory will be available for immediate reorder beginning the second week of March through Diamond Comic Distributors. All three volumes collect 50 complete consecutive issues in full color and total 1248 pages for a bargain suggested retail price of $59,99. The low price point gives readers an average savings of over $150 at retail.
" We're ecstatic at the Compendiums initial success", said Filip Sablik, Vice President of Marketing & Sales, "This was a significant gamble for a publisher our size and we're elated that the response has been so positive. We could have announced the sellout earlier, but we wanted to be able to announce a simultaneous reprint so retailers can capitalize on the demand for these books ".
