The Twelve #2 Returns With A New Printing

Okay, who besides me is reading The Twelve?  Every issue, including issue 0 have sold out.  So someone is reading it.  It's some really good stuff.  Yes we've had the whole, hero-frozen-and-revived-in-modern-day stuff already here we have twelve friggin' people.  Each one has their own story and past to deal with.  It's almost like a superhero soap opera, only without the strange staring-off-into-space-while-dramatic-music-plays-until-the-fadeout-to-commericals thing.   Check out the new cover for issue #2 here.  That's some emotional stuff.  Poor guy.  What a bummer to find out your whole world went on without you.  Worse yet, that your wife kept holding onto the hope that you'd return until her dying day.  So if you haven't, pick up this comic.  The meeting with the modern day heroes is coming up.

Marvel’s new hit series is four-for-four, as The Twelve #2 (of 12) has sold out at Diamond (though copies may be available at the retail level) and will return with a new printing to meet the overwhelming demand! The Twelve #2 (of 12) Second Printing Variant features the powerful interior art of Chris Weston on the cover, as the collaboration between red-hot scribe JMS (Thor) and Weston continues. As these mystery men and women from WW2 seek to find their new place in the modern world, someone is hunting them—but who? And why?

Critics and fans agree—The Twelve is one of 2008 best books! Earning an Editor’s Choice Award from IGN.Com, with reviewer Bryan Joel deeming it, “one of the best things I've read in a while…The Twelve has begun sinking its hooks in me and I'm thoroughly intrigued to see where it's heading.”

Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on all issues of The Twelve, as the series continues to sell out quickly and draw rave reviews from all corners. Just what awaits these displaced heroes? And can the Twelve survive being targeted by a mystery enemy? Don’t miss out on this year’s hottest new comic book epic—The Twelve!
