New Red sonja ongoing series written by Mirka Andolfo has sold out 32,190 prints of Red sonja Dynamite Entertainment’s # 1 ahead of its release in comic book stores this week. This was based on the initial comic book retailer orders of 15,703 and the increase in the number of FOCs to 27,633. Orders placed between FOC and the publication wiped out all copies at the distributor level except copies reserved in the event of shipping damage. Dynamite Entertainment states that “there are currently no plans for follow-up impressions, but Dynamite is working closely with retailers and is listening to fans to inform a follow-up decision if necessary.” Dynamite does not often make second impressions; they may need it for this one.
Red sonja # 1 by Mirka Andolfo, Luce Blengino., Giuseppe Cafaro, Chiara De Francia, and Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou will debut new characters Sitha, introducing young Sitha, the foundation of his relationship and bond with Red Sonja. It is also released the same day as that of Mirka Andolfo Sweet paprika # 1 and the second impression of Sweet paprika # 1. However, the figures are down on the Invincible red sonja launch earlier in the year from Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti, and Moritat, the comic in question has initial orders of over 21,000 but after FOC ended up with over 40,000 orders – and a call for printers to double the circulation.
