The comic book industry was caught in the grips of utter chaos Friday as Image Comics desperately attempted to keep up with what a press release referred to as “overwhelming customer demand” for Unnatural #1, the hit new comic by writer/artist Mirka Andolfo. According to the press release, the demand for the comic was so urgent that it had to be “rushed back to print” and “fast-tracked,” presumably before angry fans began gathering outside Image’s Portland headquarters, gripping fistfuls of dollar bills, demanding issues of the comic, and setting fire to unflattering effigies of Image COO Robert Kirman.
And so, as a result of what we can only assume to be heroic and heretofore impossible efforts by Image Comics as well as its partners in the printing, distribution, and retail sectors of the comics industrial complex, Unnatural #1 will hit stores on Wednesday, August 8th. Hopefully, the world can hold itself together until then. Of course, that’s the day Unnatural #2 hits stores, which could restart the entire cycle all over again.
UNNATURAL CAPTIVATES READERS

Image Comics is thrilled to announce that UNNATURAL #1, from writer/artist Mirka Andolfo (Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, DC Bombshells), is being fast-tracked for a second printing in order to keep up with overwhelming customer demand.
In this gorgeous, sensual fantasy-thriller, a totalitarian government patrols the personal lives of its citizens, punishing transgressors who engage in “unnatural” relationships. Sweet, unassuming pig girl Leslie dreams of something different for herself. But her dreams are becoming dangerous. And when she wakes, she could swear she’s being watched…
