FIRST ISSUE OF 'HAUNT' COMIC BOOK IS SOLD OUT
Second Printing of First Issue Coming to Stores

Robert Kirkman and Todd McFarlane's Haunt hit shelves Wednesday, facing an instantaneous distributor level sell out -- despite massive preorders and a significant overprint! A second printing is being rushed to fulfill the continued sales velocity, but first printings may still be available at your local comic book store.

"This sellout is attributed to the skills of Robert Kirkman, Ryan Ottley and Greg Capullo. It's always nice to be a part of such a talented team," McFarlane said. "I also would like to tip my hat to retailers who, in these tough economic times, are willing to take a chance on the odd title that is outside of the Marvel and DC realm. My hopes, now, are that the books get into the hands of new, faithful consumers and to keep the momentum going through Haunt #2 and beyond."

Haunt centers on a pair of brothers, Kurt and Daniel Kilgore, who act more like adversaries than family. Kurt, a secret agent, and Daniel, a less than holy priest, bond in a way neither of them expects after Kurt's untimely death. A surprise fusing of Kurt's ghost with Daniel's body creates a chain reaction, turning the brothers into the character, Haunt.

"I had a feeling this book would go over well considering the preorders were up there with Marvel and DC's releases," Kirkman said. "That said, it is an honor to have it so well received right off the bat. We'll continue to aim to make fans happy. Thank you to everyone who's supported the book, reader and retailer alike!"

Haunt #1 2nd Printing, a 32-page full color comic book for $2.99, will be in-stores November 4th 2009.
