PLANETOID #1 SELLS OUT
Debut comic published by Image gets second printing
Berkeley, CA - June 21, 2012 — PLANETOID #1, the debut of comics creator Ken Garing published by Image Comics, has sold out at the distributor level and will be reprinted.
Entirely written, drawn, and lettered by Garing, PLANETOID tells the story of Silas, a hardened space pirate who finds himself stranded on a barren sphere made of scrap metal with no way to escape.
"Ken Garing is off to a spectacular start with this bit of survivalist SF. This is just an introduction to the ruinous, dystopian world ofPlanetoid, and I’m eager to see what horrors yet remain in its crevices. Highly recommended."
"Every month, more and more evidence piles up that it is a good time to be a fan of science fiction comics. If this first issue is any indication, “Planetoid” is sure to be a favorite for those who enjoy the genre...."
"Garing has done a brilliant job on both the story and art front."

The second printing of PLANETOID #1 will be in stores on July 11, the same day as the second issue. It is available to order now with the Diamond code MAY128123.
