While first issues almost always sell out, one of the marks of a true market success is if a book can sustain its sales. Winnebago Graveyard is one such book.
Image Comics announced today that the second issue of the new series from Steve Niles and Alison Sampson has sold out at the distributor level and is headed back for a second printing. May sales numbers have yet to be released by Diamond, but it appears that Winnebago Graveyard has performed well enough to exceed expectations.
The second printing of issue #2 will be in comic book stores on July 19th, just in time to coincide with the release of the third issue.
