In the latest move by power-mad comic book mogul Robert Kirkman, the Skybound dictator has ordered all copies of his own comic, Die!Die!Die! #3, to be totally destroyed. Kirkman was incensed by a minor printing error in the issue, which was set for release next week, and will have the entire print run pulped, he revealed on Twitter. Instead, a new printing of Die!Die!Die! #3 will be produced and shipped to stores on October 3rd, two weeks from now, and presumably, the printers who made the error will be banished from the comic book industry and forced to live the rest of their lives in shame, far away from civilization, with nothing to do but reflect on their disgrace.
Looking for DIE!DIE!DIE! 3 in stores next week?! Well, the printer goofed and printed the cover inside out! So our inside back cover ad for issue 4 is on the cover!! This run is being pulped and reprinted and will be in stores OCTOBER 3rd!! pic.twitter.com/ruuxZpiqqy

Die!Die!Die! #1, by Kirkman, Scott M. Gimple, Chris Burnham, and Nathan Fairbairn, was Beyonce-dropped back in July with no warning whatsoever, so disorienting Bleeding Cool Rumourmonger-in-Chief Rich Johnston that he published eleven clickbait articles about it in a single day. Johnston has continued to be confused about the series, reporting back in August that the third issue would be in stores September 26th, but Johnston was clearly wrong, as we now know it won’t be available until the following week. He should have done more due diligence before reporting “facts” that would cease to be true a month later.
Look for Die!Die!Die! #3 in comic shops on October 3rd, unless some other trivial grievance annoys Kirkman and the comic must be destroyed a second time.
