Official Press Release

Image Comics has announced that AFTER THE CAPE #2 has sold out at

Diamond. Shadowline's mini-series AFTER THE CAPE delivers an

arresting vision of an extraordinary man pushed to his breaking point

and that story is resonating with fans.

"Wong has created a captivating story," says Silver Bullet Comics'

Mathan Erhardt about AFTER THE CAPE's writer Howard Wong. "He manages

to make Ethan a character that's easy to despise, yet oddly

sympathetic. He also has me equally dreading and anticipating the

next issue."

AFTER THE CAPE, tells the story of Ethan Falls, a man who had

everything: family, fame, success, and super powers. The cape wasn't

just a costume but a proud symbol of what he had become. Now a

crippling addiction has taken it and everything else away from him,

and he's spiraling towards a life of crime.

AFTER THE CAPE #3 (MAR071832) is available for order increase.

Retailers may order these issues by contacting their Diamond Customer

Service Representative by email at reorders@diamondcomics.com.
