Titan’s Dark Souls #1 Sells Out, Goes To Second Printing
Titan Comics’ debut issue of Dark Souls – the official comic set in the visceral world of the best-selling BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment /FromSoftware video-game series – has completely sold out on its first day of release.
The comic series, penned by best-selling writer George Mann (Doctor Who: The Eighth Doctor, Newbury and Hobbes Investigations) and illustrated by Alan Quah (Orphan Black, Godzilla: Awakening), has sold out, with a second print featuring a brand-new cover by Alan Quah scheduled to drop on May 18th.
Heralded by IGN as “awe-inspiring” and garnering a 9.5 score, Dark Souls III the video-game was released in April 2016 and is the fastest selling game in the franchise, with a 61% increase in sales than the previous instalments. With its dense, detailed landscapes and primal battles for survival, the Dark Souls series has captured gamers’ imaginations and has now bled onto the pages of the comic book.
“There’s been huge buzz from Dark Souls fans since Titan announced the comic series, and the sell-out out response on day one has been amazing – so we’re immediately pushing the button on a second printing of the launch issue,” said Direct Sales & Marketing Manager, Ricky Claydon.
Dark Souls #1 second printing hits local comic book stores on May 18th. Quantities may be limited, so order your copies today. Order now through Diamond’s Previews Plus using item code: MAR168497. Don’t miss out – get your orders in by May 2nd!
