Dead End Kids #1, from Frank Gogol, Nenad Cviticanin, Sean Rinehart, and Source Point Press, has been sent back for a second printing, following its sellouttwo weeks before it was released to the public.
Talking to a, writer Gogol said,
“In the case of Dead End Kids, the initial orders were 2383, so Source Point Press printed 3000 to allow for some reorders,” Gogol said. “When the reorders came in a week before the book’s release, they were in excess of the remaining 617 copies and the full order could not be fulfilled.”
He wasn’t told exact figures, but that the excess could be as high as 500, bringing the total to ~1,100 copies. He imagines that Source Point Press will do another 20% overrun as they did with the first run.
Dead Ends Kids #2 is set to release Aug 21, while the second printing of Dead End Kids #1 is set to release September 11.
