Marvel Comics has revealed two of their biggest new books have sold out and are going back for a second printing. They include Devil’s Reign #1 and Venom #2, two excellent books we reviewed at AIPT. Fans who couldn’t find a copy can purchase a second printing copy on February 9th. Both books have second printing covers too, with a Venom #2 second printing cover by Francesco Mobili and a black and white Devil’s Reign cover by Marco Chechetto.
Devil’s Reign kicks off a Daredevil vs. Kingpin story where Kingpin has vowed to reveal all the dirt he has on superheroes unless Daredevil gives him his secret identity. A secret identity that was snatched out of Kingpin’s mind. Now superheroes are illegal in New York. Written by Chip Zdarsky with art by Marco Checchetto.
Then in Venom, Eddie Brock is the King in Black, or was? In Venom #2, Eddie’s son Dylan is on the run. Ram V and Al Ewing are weaving a mind-bending story that will push Eddie and Dylan Brock to their limits, and Bryan Hitch is doing some of the most action-packed work of his career.
Check out the second printing covers below.
