Boom! Studios Deep State Series Sells Out

Award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios is pleased to announce that second printings of Deep State #1 and first printings of Deep State #2, the new conspiracy-driven series from Justin Jordan (Spread, The Strange Talent of Luther Strode) and artist Ariela Kristantina (Death of Wolverine), has sold out at the distributor level. The
publisher has gone back to press on both issues. It was recently
announced the publisher has also sold the rights for the series as a
television drama as part of its first-look deal with 20th Century Fox
TV, in a collaboration with producer Howard Gordon’s (
Homeland, Tyrant) Teakwood Lane.

Comic book fans should bear in mind that first and second printings of Deep State #1 and first printings of Deep State #2 may still be found at the local comic shop nearest you. Not sure where to find your nearest comic retailer? Use or to find one!
“We’re barely getting started with Deep State and there’s already been an incredible reaction to the series,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon.  “A shadowy government agency, gripping twists, and rich characters like
Agents Harrow and Branch combine for a different kind of ‘conspiracy
theory’ story. We’re going back to press on these first two issues so
new readers have a chance to get in on the ground floor of Justin and
Ariela’s fantastic new series!”
In Deep State, John Harrow doesn’t exist, and his job is to make sure that other
things don’t exist, too. At any given time, the government is running
dozens of black book operations, experiments that aren’t on any official
record and are never acknowledged to exist. Some of these are
innocuous. Some of them are monstrous beyond reason. And most of the
time, they go as expected and the public is never the wiser. Most of the
time. John Harrow’s job is to handle them when things go wrong, and do
anything to make sure the government’s secrets stay just that—secret. If
you’re interested in conspiracy theory stories from comics like
Planetary and Sleeper to films like Enemy of the State and Three Days of the Condor, you’ll be gripped by Deep State!
Deep State #1 third print ships with a new cover by Eric Scott Pfeiffer and carries a retail price of $3.99 with a Diamond Code of NOV148092. Deep State #2 second print ships with a modified cover by series cover artist Matt Taylor and carries a retail price of $3.99 with a Diamond Code of NOV148091. Final orders close for retailers on December 29th. It is anticipated to be in stores on January 21st.
