Official Press Release

The House of Ideas is on fire! Between the fallout of Civil War, the Death of Captain America and sizzling hot titles like Dark Tower: Gunslinger Born and Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness, Marvel continues to make must-reads of all its titles!

The response has been so incredible that Marvel is going back to press on a dozen titles to fill the demand for all of these exciting stories.

The death of Captain America has made Captain America #25 the hottest issue to hit shelves in over a decade and Marvel is rushing back to press for a second printing with a new variant cover featuring the instantly-iconic Steve Epting image of Cap shot.

Another comic making waves all over the world is Stephen King's Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born #1, which continues to thrill King and comic fans alike, with the first issue receiving a second printing with a new cover by Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada.

The best-selling comic event, Civil War, has injected excitement into titles across the Marvel Universe, making the Initiative one of the most talked about stories in comics! Mighty Avengers #1, Civil War: The Confession, Iron Man #15 and Civil War: The Initiative have all sold out and are receiving second printings.

Plus, Civil War's tragic ending for Spider-Man has the Wall-Crawler in a new frame of mind and him adopting his black costume once again. Spider-Man is Back in Black, which has Spidey back on top with three sellouts of Sensational Spider-Man #35, Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #17, and Spider-Man Family #1, which are going back to press with all-new variant second printing covers by Clayton Crain, Adi Granov, and Leonard Kirk respectively.

And as it was announced earlier this week, Marvel Zombies vs. the Army of Darkness #1 will be going back to press with an all-new Arthur Suydam zombie homage cover of Captain America #1.

Also, the hit series New Avengers: Illuminati will have its first two sold out issues collected together in New Avengers: Illuminati – Secret History.

Please note, the first printings of these titles may still be available at the retailer level. Marvel encourages retailers to order up on the subsequent issues of these series in order to meet customer demand.
