Image Comics is thrilled to announce that the first issue of Sam Humphries (Harley Quinn, Nightwing) and Jen Bartel’s (The Mighty Thor, America) magical mystery series BLACKBIRD is being fast-tracked for a second printing in order to keep up with customer demand.

In BLACKBIRD, there exists a secret cabal of ruthless magic users hiding just out of sight in the neon lights of L.A.—and Nina Rodriguez knows it. She’s determined to see it for herself, even if everyone else thinks she’s crazy. But can she unravel this mystery before the Great Beast catches up with her?

BLACKBIRD #1 will remain available for purchase across all digital platforms, including the Image Comics website (imagecomics.com), the official Image Comics iOS app, Comixology’s website (comixology.com), iOS, Android, and Google Play.

BLACKBIRD #1 2nd printing (Diamond code: AUG188950) and BLACKBIRD #2, Cover A by Jen Bartel (Diamond code: SEP180143) and Cover B by Mingjue Helen Chen (Diamond code: SEP180144), will be available on Wednesday, November 7th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, October 15th.

“The art on display in BLACKBIRD is nothing short of fantastic.” —Doom Rocket

“Blackbird is easily one of the best-looking, jaw-dropping, visually engrossing comics of 2018 so far, and will likely hold that title… Humphries and Bartel play brilliantly off each other.” —Black Nerd Problems

“The creative team for BLACKBIRD is stacked with skill...and the whole book looks like a magical Lisa Frank true-crime fantasy mystery, which is bound to capture a lot of imaginations.” —Paste Magazine

“This debut issue might be one of the most heartbreaking, and intriguing, indie comics to come out right now.” —ComicBook.com
