Jim Henson’s Power Of The Dark Crystal #1 And #2 And Redneck #3 Go To Second Prints

Donny Cates and Lisandro Estherren have seen the third issue of their comic Redneck sell out from Image Comics and go to second printing, hitting stores at the end of July along with  the first printing of Redneck #4.
What lurks in the attic of the Bowman house? With everything going to hell for his family, Bartlett must confront the one sonuvabitch that puts fear in other vampires. And what exactly do the Bowman boys have planned for Father Landry?

The comic book recreation of Jim Henson’s Power Of The Dark Crystal by Si Spurrier, Nichole Matthews and Kelly Matthews and published by Boom Comics has also sold out of its first two issues and is going back to second printings with a new joined up cover by Derek Kirk Kim. A left version and a right version, both by Derek Kirk Kim, that will link together into one image. Collect them both?

The first printing of the first issue came out in February, so it has taken a while, but looks like Boom are in this for the long haul.
