Fatale #1 an Immediate Sell Out and a USA Today Feature.

Image Comics announced today that Fatale #1 has already sold out.
This much-anticipated new series has already sold out at distribution level, despite a generous overprinting. A second printing is now underway and will arrive back on shelves next month, appearing alongside the second issue.

"The overwhelming positive response to FATALE from retailers and fans has been a bit shocking, but a great way to start the new year," said Brubaker. "Keep it up, and we'll keep putting out the best book we can."
Readers should note that the press release is only about the distribution level. Well-stocked retailers may yet have copies available for a little while longer.

The second printing of issue #1 will be out on February 1st, along with the second issue. This is the first time a Brubaker/Phillips collaboration has required a second printing since Incognito #1, first published three years ago this month.

At Bleeding Cool, Rich Johnston reports that the "Beast" variant cover (Cover B) is about half as common as the "Beauty" cover, for those interested in rarity.

On Twitter, Brubaker writes, "If you're already planning to get Fatale, please don't read the reviews or interviews. It's best if you encounter it blind."

But there is a new interview worth reading, a quick profile of Fatale at USA Today, with a few words from Brubaker and Phillips -- and a link to a short preview that includes the cover art to issue #3, from sketches to pencils to the final artwork.

Edited January 6, to include Incognito reference and a reminder that Fatale #1 may still be in retailers.
