PunisherMax #1 Sells Out & Returns With New Printing!

November 20th, 2009 Comments off

PunisherMax_01_SecondPrintingVariantFrom Frank Castle’s War Journal:

Marvel announced that PunisherMax #1 sold out at Diamond (though copies may be available at the retail level). So what? You know how low crime rates have been since I came to town? I’m not taking any breaks, neither should the criminals. The PunisherMax #1 Second Printing Variant should help them out…maybe. But even I’ll admit they’ve got some heavy hitters on this one. That Jason Aaron kid might be a little young, but he’s got skills, I’ll give him that. And Steve Dillon (you say iconic, I say battle-tested)…I think I can trust him after 70 plus issues. He’s got a variant of his original cover in the works–the new one’s black and white, my kind of color scheme.

The Rigoletto Family’s got a new bodyguard. He’s not just another schlub with a taste for the big time though. No, Wilson Fisk may just have what it takes to make himself Kingpin. That’s if I don’t take him out first.

I strongly urge (don’t make me repeat myself) that retailers check their orders on PunisherMax. I don’t think I should have to explain myself but the press think it’s good enough. And the people who listen to those reporters think it’s even better. Fisk has got his heart set on moving up but it’s about time that I put him down in the PunisherMax #1 Second Printing Variant!

White-Hot Vengeance Of The Moon Knight Sells Out Again!

November 20th, 2009 Comments off

VengeanceOfTheMoonKnight_03_SecondPrintingVariantMarvel is pleased to announce Vengeance of the Moon Knight #3 has sold out at Diamond (though copies may still be available at retail level) and will return with Vengeance of the Moon Knight #3 Second Printing Variant! The red hot team of Gregg Hurwitz and Jerome Opena present the fight of Moon Knight’s life as he tries to maintain his heroic nature when stacked up against the scum of the Marvel U! When the Hood and the Profile resurrect Moon Knight’s arch nemesis, it’s up to the White Knight to stop Bushman and his minions, fresh out of Ravencroft Asylum! The Vengeance of the Moon Knight #3 Second Printing Variant features an black and white version of the original cover by artist Leinil Francis Yu and marks the third straight sell out for the series!

“This is exactly the sort of gritty, no-punches-held rogue’s gallery the new, improved Moon Knight deserves. Jerome Opeña is the perfect artist for this sort of thing. He draws moody and dark better than most artists, and he’s at his best when given material like this.” – Bryan Joel, IGN.com

“With this third issue, Hurwitz and Opena gives us their best installment to date, proving that this is one relaunch that continues to be well-deserved.” – Joe Lopez, WeeklyComicBookReview.com

“Hurwitz has once again upped the ante for this series and he’s building a lot of momentum as Moon Knight continues to make his way to the forefront of the Marvel Universe. If you aren’t reading this book yet, you’re making a big mistake.” – Kevin Powers, ComicsBulletin.com

Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Vengeance of the Moon Knight as the series continues to earn critical acclaim and sell out with every issue! Can the Moon Knight, with his newly minted “no kill” policy, take down Bushman and the viciously lobotomized inhabitants of Ravencroft Asylum? Does Moon Knight have to rip a guy’s face off or what?
