Captain Britain and MI-13 sells out a THIRD time

Captain Britain & MI-13 #1 (Third Printing)


This looks pretty sweet in black and white.  I love the colored version but there's something about seeing the art the way it was.  Just seems more...artistic.  But then RedLAMP likes to laugh when I talk about black and white photos.  Maybe he just can't appreciate it.  

You should definitely pick up this comic if you can.   There's a reason it keeps selling out.


Captain Britain & The MI-13 #1 Returns With A Third Printing!



 
The hit ongoing series spinning out of Secret Invasion, as seen on FOX News and BBC, has done it again—Captain Britain & The MI-13#1 has sold out! To meet the overwhelming demand for this issue, that has sold out of two printings already, Marvel is going back to press with Captain Britain & The MI: 13 #1 Third Printing Variant! Written by acclaimed Doctor Who scribe Paul Cornell (upcoming Fantastic Four: True Story) and penciled by red-hot artist Leonard Kirk, this new series has fans and critics alike declaring it one of the best new books of the year! Captain Britain & The MI: 13 #1 Third Printing Variant features a black & white version of superstar artist Bryan Hitch’s iconic cover to the issue!

“It sold out again?!  Wa-hey!” exclaimed Cornell. “We are the little book that could! And by we, I mean me, Leonard Kirk and Nick Lowe, because we are a team, and by little, I mean this big event tie in title that hasn't really yet found its level, it seems, and... could we maybe just print lots next time?  Tell you what, let's start stopping everyone who's going into a comic shop, and ask them if they've got it yet. We're bound to find a few!  Although they would swiftly tire of us then, I think.  Seriously, thank you everyone who's bought it.  We're on some weird sort of roll here, and I'm waiting for this gigantic other shoe to fall, but at the moment it's just a terrific ride, one of the best writing times of my life, and I hope that shows in the comic.”

Series editor Nick Lowe added, “THIS IS A SIGN, FANS OF THINGS THAT ARE GOOD.  THIS BOOK IS REALLY GOOD!  Don’t miss out on the best new book of 2008. Paul and Leonard are creating something that is going to be copied for years to come. You remember when Mark Millar came onto the Authority and became MARK MILLAR? You remember when Brian Bendis came onto Ultimate Spider-Man and became BRIAN BENDIS?  Don’t miss Paul Cornell turning into PAUL CORNELL.  Pick up this book and brag to all your friends that you knew it was the best new thing before anyone else did.”

With mainstream media buzz and ties to the red-hot Secret Invasion event, Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Captain Britain & The MI: 13. Just what’s next for the newly formed team of UK heroes? Can they prevent a full scale Skrull invasion of Avalon? Find out in Captain Britain & The MI: 13!
