DC Comics has announced Strange Adventures #1, #3, and #4 will return with second printings. Ahead of Strange Adventures #5 going on sale September 1st, DC has revealed three of the first four issues are getting second printings with Strange Adventures #1 going back on sale on September 15th. The second printings might have something to do with the series being great, as I put it, “stands out as the most intellectually stimulating comic of the year.“
Written by Tom King with art by Mitch Gerads and Evan “Doc” Shaner the second printings will have the same covers but come in cardstock format with spot varnish, matching the subsequent issues of the series.

Strange Adventures continues to be a hit with fans and critics, and today DC announces that the sold-out issues #1, #3 and #4 of the compelling sci-fi mystery series by Tom King, Mitch Gerads, and Evan “Doc” Shaner will all return for second printings!
Strange Adventures #1’s second printing will be offered with both of the issue’s original covers by Gerads and Shaner, now presented in card stock format with spot varnish, matching the subsequent issues of the series. Copies of Strange Adventures #1’s second printing will arrive in stores on September 15.
Strange Adventures—from the Mister Miracle team of writer Tom King and artist Mitch Gerads, joined by fan-favorite artist Evan “Doc” Shaner with lettering by Clayton Cowles—is an epic tale in the tradition of Watchmen, The Dark Knight Returns, and DC: The New Frontier: a story of blood, war, and love that readers will be talking about for years to come.
Adam Strange is the hero of Rann, a man famous throughout the galaxy for his bravery and honor. After leading his adopted home to victory in a great planetary war, Adam and his wife Alanna retire to Earth, where they are greeted by cheers, awards, and parades. But not all is as happy and nice as it seems, as the decisions Adam made during battles on Rann come back to haunt his family and threaten the entire DC Universe. And now a surprise DC hero will have to choose between saving Adam Strange and saving the world.
The next installment of the 12-issue limited series, Strange Adventures #5, will hit shelves September 1, 2020.
