Kirkman’s and Azaceta’s Outcast Goes to 4th Printing

outcast4thprintThe latest offering from Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman has been an instant hit for publisher Image Comics. The first issue narrowly missed out on a Top 10 finish for the month of June, and the second finished with a solid Top 50 ranking, a good sign when initial numbers were surely juiced by speculators jumping at a chance to get in on the ground floor of the latest Kirkman opus.

Sales of that first issue have continued to be strong, and Image has announced that they will be going back to print for a fourth time, with the newest edition due out at the end of the month.
