InvestComics Hot Picks #259 – “Other comics that should be on your radar this week; Sex (2013 Image) #1″ Nuff’ said.
First issue of new superhero series gets second printing
This week, Image Comics demonstrated what everyone has suspected all along: SEX sells. Joe Casey’s and Piotr Kowalski’s comic book SEX, that is — a subversive take on superheroes that takes a former costumed crime-fighter into the underbelly of the city he’d formerly sworn to protect. The first issue, which made its debut with a limited edition exclusive cover at Emerald City Comicon and landed in stores on March 6, has sold out and will receive a second printing.
SEX #1 was the Pick of the Week at iFanboy: “It’s a book both titillating and somber, bright and dusky.”
“[F]for as much as this title begs for the attention of being called a porno mag disguised as a comic book, it refrains from titillation in favor of creating a fascinating character study amongst a fully realized neo-noir world.” –IGN
The second printing of SEX #1 will be in stores on April 3 and can be pre-ordered now (Diamond Comics code JAN130476). SEX #2 will be in stores on April 10.
