I love to here when books like this go back for more printings. I am a fan of getting the book into readers’ hands, especially when it comes to creator-owned content. Check out the official press release from IDW Publishing below for THREE titles that are selling out quick!


IDW’s Creator-Owned Projects Amber Blake, Ghost Tree, and Road of Bones Fly Off Shelves

Fan and Retailer Demand Lead to Sold-Out Issues, Scheduled Second and Third Printings

SAN DIEGO, CA (May 6, 2019) – IDW Publishing announces today that several key issues of indie-friendly titles Amber Blake, Ghost Tree, and Road of Bones have sold out at the distributor level! To meet the demand of fans and retailers, IDW will release second printings of Amber Blake #1, Ghost Tree #2, and Road of Bones #1, as well as the third printing of Ghost Tree #1, in June 2019.

“I couldn’t be happier with these new series or the reception they’re getting,” says John Barber, IDW’s Editor-in-Chief. “From action to introspection to horror, it’s gratifying to see readers reacting so strongly to three stories that I know are each deeply personal to their creators. These are stories that the writers and artists felt compelled to make, and it looks like readers are feeling that.”

Amber Blake, written by international modeling sensation Jade Lagardére and illustrated by industry legend Butch Guice (The Flash, Action Comics), is a four-issue thriller that shines a harsh light on international human trafficking. The titular heroine, a top recruit at a covert agency, seeks to end human slavery in all of its forms… and sets out on an intensely personal mission to avenge those she loves.

Amber Blake #1 Second Printing Item Code: MAR198651 On-Sale Date: 6/12/19

Ghost Tree, a four-issue miniseries written by Bobby Curnow (Ward’s Valley), illustrated by Simon Gane (Godzilla) and colored by Ian Herring (Deadpool), follows a young man whose return to his ancestral Japanese home leads him to a haunted tree… and the departed souls that are drawn to it. It’s a touching story of love and loss, exploring how the past never truly stays dead.

Ghost Tree #1 Third Printing Item Code: MAR198821 On-Sale Date: 6/26/19
Ghost Tree #2 Second Printing Item Code: MAR198822 On-Sale Date: 6/26/19
Note: Both of the new Ghost Tree printings are slated to release simultaneously on June 26th with the release of Ghost Tree #3.

Road of Bones, written by Rich Douek (TMNT Universe) and illustrated by Alex Cormack (Sink), is a four-issue survival tale wherein horror, history, and Russian folklore collide. The worst prison in the world – the Siberian Gulag of Kolyma – is merely the gateway to even darker terrors, as escapees stumble over hundreds of miles of frozen tundra on a descent into delirious madness.

Road of Bones #1 Second Printing Item Code: MAR198823 On-Sale Date: 6/26/19

With atmospheric visuals and evocative storytelling, these three titles fit the profile of quality and independence that defined IDW from the very start of its two decades of publishing (and yielded such hits as 30 Days of Night, Zombies vs. Robots, Locke & Key, and Wynonna Earp) – a tradition that continues through the Spring/Summer 2019 season with Canto, Usagi Yojimbo, Ragnarök: The Breaking of Helheim, Marilyn Manor, and Star Pig.
