Although comics getting a reprint is nothing new these days, it is noteworthy when they are relatively new titles that don’t have a large following to begin with. But, with a few Image titles, that’s exactly what happened. The series Happy is going back to print – both the first and second issues – as well as the 4th issue of Revival. The details were provided to Comic Booked via the following press release from Image:

THREE IMAGE COMICS SELL OUT WEEK OF RELEASE

HAPPY! #1 and #2, REVIVAL #4 get new printings

Three Image Comics issues — HAPPY! #1 (second printing, HAPPY! #2, and REVIVAL #4 — have sold out this week and will receive new printings

Both the second issue and second printing of the first issue of HAPPY!, a four-issue miniseries by Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson, were released this Wednesday and quickly sold out at the distributor level. A third printing of HAPPY! #1 (SEP128237) and a second printing of HAPPY! #2 (SEP128238) will be in stores on December 5, the same day as HAPPY! #3. HAPPY! tells the story of disgraced cop Nick Sax and his tiny blue companion, the winged horse Happy, who may or may not be a hallucination.

REVIVAL #4 also sold out at the distributor level this week Every issue of the ongoing series by Tim Seeley and Mike Norton about a small town where the dead came back to life for one fateful day has had multiple printings. The second printing of REVIVAL #4 (SEP128239) will be in stores on December 5.

So what do you think? With reprints so soon, the books are obviously pretty hot, and after having read both of those titles I can attest to that! Do you have them yet, or are you looking forward to getting these books once the reprints arrive?

    With Morrison being attached this book will fly off the shelves regardless how good. Grant Morrison has a fan following I find astounding.

    Very loyal indeed. I tend to enjoy most of his stuff, so I can see why.
