With a name like The Spread, you would expect a lot of something that's very wide reaching. Covering lots of ground and reaching many different places. Image Comics named the book appropriately, as the Justin Jordan/Kyle Strahm collaboration has seen the second issue sell out at the distributor level prior to a second printing. In fact, both issues have sold out completely as readers discover the infectious story that has been compared to John Carpenter’s The Thing. The scheduled reprintings will arrive on September 10 to meet customer demand.
Spread #1 reveals that ten years ago, humanity unleashed something ancient that couldn’t be controlled that would later be called "The Spread." Now, deep inside a quarantined zone, one man named No has found what might be the key to stopping it forever and saving the world. In Spread #2, the situation looks bleak for No. Raiders, slavers, and a hungry flesh-eating Spreadworm stand in his way. The first two issues will be going back to print to meet customer demand and to provide further opportunity for retailers to convert more readers to this popular new sci-fi pulp horror. The third printing of Spread #1 (Diamond Code JUN148395) will release on September 10. The second printing of Spread #2 (Diamond Code JUN148396) will release on the same day.
Spread #3 will arrive in stores on September 10 and can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code JUL140576. Full press release below.
