Cap Marvel #3 Sells Out Before It Arrives In Stores

Okay how did I miss that this is only five issues?  Sure we know he can't stick around the "present" now since he has to go back to his normal time so he can die, but I could see this lasting longer than five issues.  Or maybe the real reason he was able to come back is because he's a Skrull.  Yeah, not very likely.  I wonder how many other dead superheroes can say they've sold out an issue before it arrived in comic shops?  I'm assuming it has something to do with orders too.  It's not like the old days where they would print a certain amount each month.  I think (and I could be wrong) that they base the printings on the number of orders that Diamond receives from the comic shops then adds a few more.  Either way, it's impressive.  And the Secret Invasion is almost upon us...

Marvel is pleased to announce that due to an overwhelming demand, Captain Marvel #3 (of 5) has sold out at Diamond—before the issue arrives in stores! But just what could be so shocking, so jaw-dropping that the demand for this issue has reached fever pitch? What is the truth about Captain Marvel’s journey through time? And how does this all connect to Captain Marvel #4 and Captain Marvel #5, both Secret Invasion tie-ins? Writer Brian Reed said, "It's all coming to a head for Captain Marvel. Issue #3 looks like it answers a lot of questions... or maybe it just raises a million more!"

“Fans won’t believe what happens on the final page,” added Brian Bendis, architect of 2008’s most anticipated event, Secret Invasion.

Run, don’t walk, to your local comic store on Wednesday, February 13th, to get your copy of the book so hot that it’s already sold out—Captain Marvel #3! And don’t miss the end of the thrilling, sold-out limited series, as it ties into Secret Invasion!
