Hot new seriesÂ A Righteous Thirst For VengeanceÂ byÂ New YorkÂ TimesÂ bestselling writer Rick Remender (The Scumbag, Deadly Class, Black Science) and artist AndrÃ© AraÃºjo (Generation Gone, Man Plus) has sold out completely at the distributor level. Image Comics will rush this exciting debut issue back to print in order to keep up with rapidly growing reorder activity.
“The wonderful art of Mr. AraÃºjo gave me confidence to make the type of book I’ve wanted to make my entire career,” said Remender. “It makes us both so happy that people are enjoying it.”
AraÃºjo added: “We invested a lot in our storytelling approach, creating a methodical, slow burning and mysterious narrative. With both critical and commercial receptions being this exceptional, comes a great sense of reward in finding such a large readership so eager to join us.”
In A Righteous Thirst For Vengeance, when an unassuming man stumbles upon a dark-web contract assassinâ€™s vicious plot to kill an innocent target, he turns himself into one. The Professional meets Road to Perdition in this story of a familyâ€™s unlikely guardian being hunted by rich and powerful men who are used to getting away with everything.
A Righteous Thirst For Vengeance #1, second printing (Diamond Code AUG218990) and A Righteous Thirst For Vengeance #2 (Diamond Code SEP210196) will both be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, November 10.
