DSTLRY’s ‘The Devil’s Cut’ sells out at distribution level

You better get to your LCS and buy DSTLRY’s ‘The Devil’s Cut’ as no reprints are planned in this format.

Press Release

DSTLRY announced today their opening foray anthology one-shot The Devil’s Cut has sold out at the distributor level. The 88-page extra-sized issue will never be reprinted in this format again, with over 50,000 copies ordered. Given it was in our top two comics of the week on the AIPT Comics podcast, and our reviewer loved it too, it’s no surprise.

“It’s incredible to see so many fans and retailers supporting our launch with such genuine excitement and enthusiasm for both The Devil’s Cut and what’s to come,” said DSTLRY co-founders David Steinberger and Chip Mosher in a joint statement. “We’re deeply touched by the level of interest in an independent, creator-owned publisher, so much of which is due to our legendary creator lineup, and we promise that we will continue to work tirelessly on behalf of creators, retailers, and fans to continue—and exceed—the high bar this sets.”

Eight of the 11 stories will spin off into their own series, with Jock kicking things off on October 25 with GONE #1, a sci-fi adventure spinning out of his The Devil’s Cut entry “The Stowaway.” Becky Cloonan and Tula Lotay follow in November with their newly announced erotic folk-horror nightmare Somna, with each of the fan-favorite creators contributing both writing and art as they did in their The Devil’s Cut offering, “What Blighted Flame Burns in Thee?”

NEW YORK, NY – September 7, 2023 – DSTLRY, the next-generation publisher redefining creator-owned comic books and collectibles, today announced that its debut comic, The Devil’s Cut, has completely sold out at the distributor level. The 88-page, premium format one-shot, which will never be reprinted in this format again, released last week in comic book shops following rave early reviews and months of anticipation from fans.

While DSTLRY distribution partners Diamond Comic Distributors and Lunar Distribution have sold out of the more than 50,000 copies ordered, local comic shops may still have copies of the mature-readers release, which features 11 breathtaking short stories about love, fear, dreams, sex, and death from DSTLRY’s world-class Founding Creators and Friends.

Fans of the The Devil’s Cut can look forward to much more from DSTLRY, as eight of the stories featured in the one-shot will see their characters, worlds, and concepts expanded on in upcoming series throughout 2023 and 2024. Jock will kick things off on October 25 with GONE #1, a sci-fi adventure spinning out of his The Devil’s Cut entry “The Stowaway.” Becky Cloonan and Tula Lotay follow in November with their newly announced, erotic folk-horror nightmare Somna, with each of the fan-favorite creators contributing both writing and art as they did in their The Devil’s Cut offering, “What Blighted Flame Burns in Thee?”

“It’s incredible to see so many fans and retailers supporting our launch with such genuine excitement and enthusiasm for both The Devil’s Cut and what’s to come,” said DSTLRY co-founders David Steinberger and Chip Mosher in a joint statement. “We’re deeply touched by the level of interest in an independent, creator-owned publisher, so much of which is due to our legendary creator lineup, and we promise that we will continue to work tirelessly on behalf of creators, retailers, and fans to continue—and exceed—the high bar this sets.”

Edited by the legendary Will Dennis (Y: The Last Man, Snow Angels), The Devil’s Cut features a flight of high-proof work and unfiltered stories crafted by the most innovative pioneers in comics, including DSTLRY’s Founding Creators Mirka Andolfo, Brian Azzarello, Marc Bernardin, Elsa Charretier, Becky Cloonan, Lee Garbett, Jock, Joëlle Jones, Tula Lotay, Jamie McKelvie, Junko Mizuno, Stephanie Phillips, Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, and Ram V, as well as friends Francesco Francavilla, Ariela Kristantina, Eduardo Risso, and Christian Ward.
