When Archaia first announced Hacktivist, a series created by Alyssa Milano, it was met with the usual batch of skepticism that comes with celebrity driven comics. To everyone’s surprise the first issue actually turned out to be rather good.
The first issue sold out through it’s 8,000 print run at Diamond’s despite a 20% overprint from orders of just over 6,000. Now issue #2 has done the same thing with its 4,500 print run in less than a week, even with a 40% increase of retailer orders at FOC.
However I’m told that there won’t be any second printings.
