You may remember my tweet about temporarily avoiding the obvious pun with BOOM! Studios' HIT upon reading the first issue. I hope the comic book gods can forgive me for this, because that time is over. It's official: HIT #1 is a hit!
The debut series from writer Bryce Carlson and artist Vanessa R. Del Rey sold out of its 10,000 copy print run within a week of its September 4th release. Joining Carlson and Del Rey in presenting this noir tale are colorist Archie Van Burden and letterer Ed Dukeshire.
From the press release:
"We're thrilled to announce HIT #1 has sold out of its first print," says BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. "HIT is one of the series I'm most proud of this year. It's always a great feeling when something you believe in is embraced by comic book readers."
If you missed HIT #1, it's not too late to jump on. For the download crowd, Comixology always has you covered. If you fancy a print copy, the second print will ship with a new cover by Del Rey on October 2nd alongside issue #2. This is a highly recommended book not only for crime noir fans but for everyone because it's just a good comic.
