THE REALM RUSHED BACK TO PRINT ON DAY OF RELEASE
Co-creators Seth M. Peck (X-Men) and Jeremy Haun (THE BEAUTY), with colorist Nick Filardi and letterer Thomas Mauer, have launched a smash hit in THE REALM. Image Comics has announced that THE REALM #1 is being rushed back to print on the same day as its release in order to keep up with overwhelming customer demand.
Welcome to the treacherous world of THE REALM. Fifteen years ago, we were overrun by creatures of myth. The shadows hide nameless terrors—but not for long.
Select praise for THE REALM:
“THE REALM is a world built from the cadaver of normalcy. A post-apocalyptic fantasy that punches you in the nose…and still makes you want more.
Be warned: this book is contagious.”
—Aaron Kuder (Guardians of the Galaxy)
“THE REALM is like Dungeons & Dragons colliding with a really great post-apocalyptic survival story.
A fun genre mash-up!” —Jeff Lemire (ROYAL CITY, A.D.: AFTER DEATH)
“A brilliant melding of genres with a nice punch to the nuts at the same time.”
—Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night, Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse)
“An awesome blend of fantasy and dystopia. It’s THE WALKING DEAD meets EAST OF WEST with a dash of Lord of the Rings thrown in.” —Horror Talk
“Action-packed and heading somewhere compelling. And the art by Haun and Filardi is immensely successful in setting the mood: creative, beautiful renderings of an ugly situation and a world that’s seen better days.”
“Writer Seth Peck and artist Jeremy Haun imbue fantasy with the survivalist rigor of Cormac McCarthy (The Road) or Stand-era Stephen King, with threads that straddle human need with intoxicating supernaturalism.”
THE REALM #1 will remain available for purchase across all digital platforms, including the Image Comics website (imagecomics.com), the official Image Comics iOS app, Comixology’s website (comixology.com), iOS, Android, and Google Play.
THE REALM #1, 2nd printing (Diamond code: AUG178150), along with THE REALM #2 Cover A from Haun and Filardi (Diamond code: AUG170708) and Cover B from Jeff Lemire (Diamond code: AUG170709) will be available Wednesday, October 18th.
