‘The Department of Truth’ #1 reaches 100k orders selling out at Diamond

James Tynion IV and Martin Simmonds’ The Department of Truth is rushing back to print.

Press Release

Image Comics has revealed The Department of Truth has topped 100,000 orders and has sold out at Diamond Comics Distributors. The first issue is stellar, we gave it a 10/10 in our review, and it’s clearly making waves with fans too.

“I’m honestly speechless. You work on a comic book for a few years in isolation, and you hope that people are going to connect with it, but you never really know,” said Tynion IV in an official Image Comics press release. “Seeing the response to this series, both on a critical and a commercial front, has been absolutely staggering. Thank you so much for putting your faith in this little book. I am going to work my butt off to make sure it stays the best comic book it can be.”

To know that so many people have picked up the first issue, and that the reaction has been so enthusiastic, is extra rocket fuel for us to make sure we continue making a book that keeps readers engrossed with every turn of the page. Thank you for all the support, it means the world to us.”

PORTLAND, Ore. 10/07/2020 — The Department of Truth by James Tynion IV (Batman, Something is Killing the Children) and Martin Simmonds (Dying is Easy) launched from Image Comics with over 100K in orders, before selling out instantly at Diamond Distributors last week. It is being rushed back to print to keep up with the whirlwind customer demand.

“I’m honestly speechless. You work on a comic book for a few years in isolation, and you hope that people are going to connect with it, but you never really know,” said Tynion IV. “Seeing the response to this series, both on a critical and a commercial front, has been absolutely staggering. Thank you so much for putting your faith in this little book. I am going to work my butt off to make sure it stays the best comic book it can be.”

The Department of Truth #1 is Image’s third-highest series launch since Eric Stephenson took over as publisher in 2008, behind Jupiter’s Legacy #1 in 2013 and this week’s The Walking Dead Deluxe #1.

Simmonds added: “It’s fair to say that the response to The Department of Truth has been quite incredible. To know that so many people have picked up the first issue, and that the reaction has been so enthusiastic, is extra rocket fuel for us to make sure we continue making a book that keeps readers engrossed with every turn of the page. Thank you for all the support, it means the world to us.”
