The Infinite Goes to Second Printing

It shouldn't be a surprise that a collaboration between two well-known creative powerhouses like Robert Kirkman, Image Comics COO and creator of THE WALKING DEAD and INVINCIBLE, and Rob Liefeld, creator of Deadpool, Cable and YOUNGBLOOD, would be popular with comic book retailers, reviewers and readers alike. Both creators have droves of fans, but the combination of the two of them has produced a sure-fire hit with THE INFINITE! In fact, despite a very generous overprint, the first issue of THE INFINITE has already sold out at distribution level and is being send back to press.

"Super-excited to hear that everyone is enjoying THE INFINITE!" exclaimed Liefeld. "When Robert and I started this adventure more than a year ago, we were determined to build a bold, new world with compelling characters that the fans would grow to care about in the same way they have with Robert's seminal works, THE WALKING DEAD and INVINCIBLE. A new printing is on the way so that as many fans as possible can continue to follow the story of THE INFINITE! And with several issues in the can, I can say with 100% certainty that the best is yet to come!"

"I've been a fan of Rob's work since I first encountered it with X-Force #1, working with him to create something NEW in comics has definitely been a high note in my career," added Kirkman. "To see that fans are enjoying THE INFINITE as much as we are making it is extremely gratifying, especially because Rob and I know the best is yet to come!"

The first issue of THE INFINITE begins the story of Bowen, a freedom fighter who has lost everything to war. His only hope of saving the world is to travel back in time to prevent world domination before it starts. Bowen knows he can’t do this alone, so he decides he must turn to the only ally he knows he can trust: himself! Now Bowen, a man in his 40s, damaged by the horrors of war, and his younger, reckless, and optimistic self will attempt to save the world!

While THE INFINITE #1 has sold out, THE INFINITE #1 DELUXE EDITION and THE INFINITE #1 BLANK Variant Cover are still available for reorder now. A second printing of THE INFINITE #1 (JUN118041), a 32-page full-color sci-fi action comic for $2.99, is available for order and will be back in stores on September 14. THE INFINITE #2 (JUL110528), featuring several limited variant covers, will also be on sale in stores the same day and is available to order now in the September issue of Previews.
