Evil Empire #2 Gets Second Printing

Evil Empire #2 Cover 2nd Print

Everyone loves a success story, especially when that "everybody" is a comic book publisher. BOOM! Studios is the big winner in this case, as Evil Ernie #2 is one of their most recent books to get the second printing treatment. That means fans of the Max Bemis/Ransom Getty collaboration can get another chance at the making of a corrupt, immoral society. And they're pretty pleased about the milestone.

“EVIL EMPIRE #2 reaching a second print is a special benchmark for a series that is garnering a ton of critical acclaim for us,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “Max has created a charged and powerful story that asks the hard questions about morality and its place in politics. He gives us a view of how a society could crumble and how a true evil empire rises. What’s even more exciting? The story is barely getting started.”

In Evil Empire #2, the sands are shifting in America’s public consciousness. One action has torn the country apart in a debate over the meaning of right and wrong, and Reese is not about to stand by as the American people support the rantings of a mad man. But how far will people go to take a stand for what they believe in? Evil Empire #2 second print ships with a new cover by Andre De Freitas and carries a retail price of $3.99 with a Diamond Code of MAR148325. It's anticipated to be in stores on May 28.
