Praise for DEAD LETTERS #1:
“First issues are tough. Good first issues are murder, are rare, are wonderful, and should be shouted about from the rooftops. DEAD LETTERS #1 is a GREAT first issue. And the hook on its first page is only surpassed by the hook on its last page. BOOM! might just have the next Preacher on its hands. Even better, they have the first DEAD LETTERS on their hands.” – Matt Fraction
“…it’ll take you on a memorable ride, and leave you with a revelation that is sure to bring you back next month.” – Comic Bastards
“Just when you think you have an idea where everything is going, you get the rug pulled from beneath you.” – Comic Vine
“If Sebela and Visions can continue to masterfully collaborate with such surprising, inspiring and hair-raising plots, there is no doubt this series will become a hit. 10 out of 10.” – Comicosity
DEAD LETTERS #1 second print ships with a new cover by Artyom Trakhanov and carries a retail price of $3.99. It is anticipated to be on sale May 7.
