Retailers have overed over 100,000 copies of Dynamite Entertainment's upcoming Sheena #0. Priced at 25¢, the introductory issue by writers Marguerite Bennett and Christina Trujilo along with artist Moritat is the latest revamp of the character - and the first for Dynamite.
Dynamite says Sheena #0 has "record high" numbers in excess of 100,000, but won't give specifics. Last year's Red Sonja #0, also priced at 25¢, had a reported 110,000 print run.
"We are so incredibly proud of this series, and overwhelmed by the response from both retailers and fans before the series has even launched," said Dynamite CEO/Publisher Nick Barrucci. "We continue to grow our audience with our Introductory Priced books as this is our highest ordered book of the year, and the program allows retailers to stock up at minimal risk, and fans to read our books at the lowest price possible. We can't thank all of the incredible retailers who have supported us with such strong orders which helps guarantee the longevity of the series. We want to express our sincerest thanks to all of the retailers and fans whose excitement has driven this success, and have surpassed every single one of our expectations."
Sheena #0 is scheduled for release August 2.
