BOOM! Studios announced today that the first printing of ALIENATED #1, the premiere issue of the new original series from acclaimed writer Simon Spurrier (John Constantine: Hellblazer, Coda), artist Chris Wildgoose (Batgirl, Batman: Nightwalker), colorist André May, and letterer Jim Campbell has sold out at the distributor level. ALIENATED is the subversive coming-of-age story about having all the power to change the world but the unready hands to truly wield it,
In order to meet the overwhelming demand from retailers and fans, BOOM! Studios has fast-tracked ALIENATED #1 SECOND PRINTING to arrive in comic shops on March 3, 2020. This second printing will feature new cover art by Wildgoose. Quantities are limited and allocation may occur.
Three teenagers, each an outcast in their own way, stumble upon an unearthly entity as it’s born. As they bond over this shared secret and the creature’s incredible abilities, it becomes clear to the teenagers that their cute little pet is a predator in the making—and it’s in need of prey. Guided by the best intentions at first, the teens’ decisions soon become corrupted by adolescent desires, small-town jealousies, and internal rivalries, sending them into a catastrophic spiral of their own making.
“With such an incredible team of creators involved, it’s no wonder ALIENATED has fans, fellow creators, and retailers so excited for its debut,” said Filip Sablik, President, Publishing, and Marketing, BOOM! Studios. “And it’s due to that excitement and passion that we are proud to announce the second printing of issue one, giving everyone a chance to dive straight into this compelling new series from the very start.”
