BIRD, GO! Mad Cave’s GATCHAMAN #1 gets a second printing!

GATCHAMAN #1, with its initial print run amounting to over 30,000 copies, has earned a prominent place in Mad Cave Studios history as their biggest launch issue of all time!

With distributor inventory swiftly depleting and copies flying off store shelves, Mad Cave is responding to the high demand with the Gatchaman #1 Second Printing, timed for release perfectly with the upcoming August 7th street date for Gatchaman #2.

Gatchaman #1 is the first release of the ongoing Teen comic book series, a masterful collaboration between writer Cullen Bunn (A Legacy of Violence, Deadpool) and artist Chris Batista (Justice League), colored by Carlos Lopez and lettered by Buddy Beaudoin.

A mechanical terror has descended upon numerous cities and the world’s greatest scientists are disappearing. Our only hope: Science Ninja Team Gatchaman! As they battle these machinations from the international terrorist organization known as Galactor, their strength, willpower, and even vehicles are pushed to the absolute limit. If they fail…who’s waiting in the wings to take their place?

The Second Printing features a sensational new cover by series artist Chris Batista, and will include a QR code that links to a digital copy of Gatchaman #0, the promotional Free Comic Book Day issue that provides awesome easy-entry points into Mad Cave’s entire Gatchaman line.

Mad Cave Studios, in their partnership with Tatsunoko Production, bring the explosive action of the Science Ninja Team to comics with not only the Gatchaman ongoing series, but also new library of spinoff one-shots and miniseries as well. Fans are encouraged to seek out the one-shot comic, Gatchaman—Ken: Deathmatch by Tommy Lee Edwards and Mindy Lee, in stores now, and look for the four-issue Gatchaman: Galactor miniseries by Steve Orlando and Kath Lobo, beginning in August.

Longtime fans and curious newcomers, don’t miss out on the Gatchaman #1 Second Printing and Gatchaman #2 on August 7th.
