NEW YORK - October 30, 2013 - Red Circle Comics is proud to announce that The Fox #1 has SOLD OUT of its 1st print run from Diamond Comics Distributors as of 10am this morning. The highly anticipated debut issue of the series is by Emmy Award winning writer/artist Dean Haspiel (Billy Dogma, HBO's Bored To Death) with words by Eisner Award winning writer Mark Waid (Daredevil, Thrillbent), their first collaboration together.

The Fox has generated buzz from notable comic and news sites including USA TODAY, THE NEW YORK POST, COMIC BOOK RESOURCES, AIN'T IT COOL NEWS, NERDIST, BLEEDING COOL, and more.

Critics agree: The Fox is a smash hit!

"THE FOX is a fantastically fun roller coaster ride... check this great comic out for yourself. Go have fun!" - Ain't It Cool News

"The Fox #1 is a delightfully fun, throwback comic well-suited to eyes of both new and lapsed comic book readers" - Comic Book Resources

"The Fox #1 is a rollicking first issue... Waid and Haspiel rise to the challenge, creating a fun, refreshing book that I'm eager to see continue to grow and evolve." - Nerdist

"Sleek design overlaid with Waid dialog makes this one an essential" - Comic Vine

"The Fox #1 by Dean Haspiel and Mark Waid is an awesome comic that packs more fun and action per page than you can believe!" - Den of Geek

The Fox follows the lead of the mega successful Afterlife With Archie, which sold out in less than 5 hours of release, continuing the publisher's successful streak of releasing select TEEN+ comics exclusively to comic shops. A 2nd printing is in the works with details forthcoming.

In addition to the stellar creative team, Red Circle Comics has enlisted today's top talent to contribute cover art including such A-listers as Darwyn Cooke, Fiona Staples, Paul Pope, Mike Allred, David Mack and many more yet to be revealed. This all-star event continues when issue #2 hits 12/4 where Haspiel and Waid will be joined by more top tier talent in writer J.M. DeMatteis (Justice League 3000), and the art team of Mike Cavallaro (The Life and Times of Savior 28) and Terry Austin (Uncanny X-Men) on The Shield back-up.

still haven't got mine yet (i get billed monthly for mail order comics, so i am usually a bit behind the rest of the world in receiving comics).

Still, i wonder what the print run was of this issue. I have a feeling it would have been low enough to guarantee that this Mark Waid title would sell out, and thereby allow them to issue this press release.

Good that Waid is on the project though, if it could finally help the Red Circle line get the sales it needs.
