Press Release: Image Comics Rushes Die #1out for Fourth Printing!

KIERON GILLEN & STEPHANIE HANS’ DIE IS ON FIRE
PORTLAND, OR 02/21/2019 — Image Comics is pleased to announce that New York Times bestselling DIE #1, 4th ptgcreator Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + The Divine) and artist Stephanie Hans’ Die #1 is being rushed back to print for a fourth time to keep up with growing demand for the series.

Die is a pitch-black fantasy where a group of adults have to deal with the returning unearthly horror they barely survived as teenage role-players. The series is perhaps best described as “Goth Jumanji”—but that only captures a sliver of what you’ll find in this series where fantasy gets all too real.

Die #1, fourth printing  will be available on Wednesday, March 20. The final order cutoff deadline for comic shop retailers is Monday, Feb 25.

Die is also available for purchase across many digital platforms, including the official Image Comics iOS app, Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.

ABOUT KIERON GILLEN

Their most successful work is their 2014 ongoing series, The Wicked + The Divine. Kieron’s other books for Image include Three and the recently launched Die. His other books include many titles published by Marvel (Journey into Mystery, Uncanny X-Men, Young Avengers) and Avatar. He lives in London.
