Surgeon X Sells Out And Goes To Second Printing

That was fast! I only went to the launch party last night…


Surgeon X #1 by Sara Kenney and John Watkiss is the big sellout issue from Image Comics this week, and has gone straight to second print…

Image Comics is pleased to announce that the highly anticipated new series by Sara Kenney, John Watkiss, and edited by industry legend Karen Berger, SURGEON X, launched to overwhelming critical acclaim and is being sent back to print in order to keep up with increasing customer demand.

SURGEON X explores a bleak future where a far-right British government, an antibiotic apocalypse, and a gruesome murder result in the birth of Surgeon X and her renegade practice. Extreme times call for extreme medicine.

Kenney, acclaimed documentary, factual drama, and animation filmmaker (Angels and Ghosts), master artist Watkiss (Sandman, Conan, Deadman) and Berger, award-winning and Vertigo-founding editor, have stitched together a unique, darkly comic medical thriller, which will horrify and delight in equal measure.

SURGEON X #1, 2nd printing (Diamond Code AUG168926) and SURGEON X #2 (Diamond Code AUG160672) will be available on Wednesday, October 26th. The final order cutoff for retailers is Monday, October 3rd.
