Marvel Comics has revealed Gerry Duggan and Juan Frigeri’s Iron Man launch Invincible Iron Man #1 has sold out and is going back to print for a second printing. If you missed out on the first issue, fear not, as the second printing will arrive in comic shops in February. It’s not super surprising it sold out–the first issue is pretty darn good as you can see from my review–so the second printing might sell out too!
The second printing will come with a new cover by Mark Bagley and a black-and-white rendering of artist Bob Layton’s incredible cover.
Check out both covers below.

New York, NY— December 20, 2022 — This past Wednesday, fans witnessed the beginning of an all-new era for Tony Stark in INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #1! Writer Gerry Duggan and artist Juan Frigeri have taken over the armored Avenger’s adventures and didn’t pull any punches in their explosive first issue, which sold out and will return in February with a second printing!
INVINCIBLE IRON #1 will receive two new second printing covers, both of which celebrate the character’s iconic legacy by showcasing the many armors Tony has suited up in over the years: A brand-new piece by superstar artist Mark Bagley and definitive Iron Man artist Bob Layton’s showstopping connecting piece in all its glory.
INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #1 ended with Tony Stark hitting rock bottom, having lost it all: his wealth…his fame…his friends. But don’t count Stark out just yet.
