New Printing Scheduled for Runaway Hit in April

BERKELEY, CA -- 23 March, 2011 -- With the first eight issues of MORNING GLORIES sold out and Nick Spencer and Joe Eisma's enigmatic Shadowline series continuing to attract buzz, Image Comics has announced that the trade paperback collection, MORNING GLORIES, VOL. 1: FOR A BETTER FUTURE, has sold through its entire print run.

Written by Spencer with art by Eisma and covers by Rodin Esquejo, MORNING GLORIES has received widespread critical acclaim since launching in September 2010, and attracting some of the most glowing reviews of any Image title since THE WALKING DEAD's illustrious debut. Despite rising initial orders, multiple reprints and an ongoing commitment to overprinting, each issue sells out within days of reaching stores, and now the first trade paperback is continuing that trend. 

"The continued success of MORNING GLORIES has been really thrilling for Joe and I," Spencer said. "The amount of support we've received for this book is just amazing, but we're just getting started – we still want more people to read MORNING GLORIES!" 

With that in mind, Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson noted that a second printing of MORNING GLORIES, VOL. 1 trade paperback has already been rushed to press in an effort to make the book available to curious new readers as quickly as possible. 

"Based on the response to the trade, we knew we wanted to get back to press right away and had already begun working with Shadowline on a new printing," he explained. "Sales velocity exceeded even our wildest imagination, though, and while selling so quickly is nice, we'd rather the book be available." 

MORNING GLORIES, VOL. 1: FOR A BETTER FUTURE (DEC100470), a 200-page trade paperback collecting the first six issues of the sold out Shadowline series at the low introductory price of $9.99 is available for re-order now with an in-store date of April 20.

Not only are the issues selling out but so did the paperback. That's good news for this series and I'm glad I purchased my copy of the trade so quickly. I look forward to reading this series.

@shawn87:  
Great series!!! Most likely my fav. If I had to cut all my other comics, this would likely be the sole survivor. Spencer's reminding me of all the things I loved about early Morrison.

@ns2
really? Then I hope they are not going to make the same mistakes Marvel did and cancel Morning Glories.

@Kairan1979:

I don't think that Image cancels books I think it's up to the creators to decide whether they want to continue wwith the book or not

I have been loving Morning Glories and it is one of my favorite series. It has a great mystery and a great set of characters for the series.
