Valiant Comics has announced that X-O MANOWAR #1 has sold out at the distributors (45,000 copies) and a second printing has been ordered.
"The success of this book is due in no small part to Rob and Cary's phenomenal work, and our staff deserves a big round of applause as well," said Valiant Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. "Warren, Fred, and the rest of the team spent months making sure Valiant's return would make as big an impact as possible."
"Valiant has never underestimated the resonance that its characters have with comics fans around the world," added Valiant CEO Jason Kothari. "X-O Manowar #1 has already taken a lot of people by surprise, and, with Harbinger #1 and Bloodshot #1 just around the corner, this is truly going to be a summer of Valiant."
The second printing of X-O MANOWAR #1,which features a wraparound cover Arturo Lozzi, will hit store shelves June 20. X-O MANOWAR #2 will be out June 6. You can read our review of X-O MANOWAR #1 here.
