Aphrodite IX #1 Reprinted

For whatever reason, numbers I through VIII of the Aphrodite variety just don't have the same sway that Aphrodite IX seems to have with readers. The amnesiac assassin has a way with, well, everyone and readers everywhere agree, pushing Aphrodite IX #1 to a sell-out and second printing. The title was originally created by David Wohl and David Finch, but the reboot is being taken care of by Matt Hawkins and Stjepan Sejic.

On June 12, the first issue of the relaunch will hit stores. That also happens to be the same day as the launch of the second issue and it will boast an all-new cover by Sejic. In it, Aphrodite IX awakes to find she must navigate an unrecognizable Earth that is being contended over by warring factions of the cybernetically enhanced and genetically enhanced.

Aphrodite IX #1's second printing (APR138007), Aphrodite IX #2 (APR130429) and Aphrodite IX: Reloaded (APR130445) are available now for pre-order. Full press release below.

Aphrodite IX was originally created by David Wohl and David Finch in the best-selling graphic novel published in 1996, which is being offered again as part of the relaunch in a limited edition APHRODITE RELOADED hardcover edition. The hardcover, set to be in stores this summer, features updates to the script by series co-creator and writer David Wohl.
