FEBRUARY 10, 2005 -- BAYVILLE, NJ -- Echo 3 Worldwide and Digital Webbing are proud to announce that its first one-shot, BloodRayne: Skies Afire, has sold out from the publisher. To meet demand, the issue will immediately go back to press with BloodRayne: Skies Afire Second Printing (Diamond Item Code: DEC04 8345 F) and features a blueline sketch version of the original cover by Romano Molenaar. This edition also includes 4 pages of behind-the-scenes material which was not in the first printing.
The mysterious Brimstone Society has lurked just outside the fringes of mankind for ages. They keep a tight reign on the horrors of the world, and to accomplish this, they need agents just as horrifying. One of the Society's recruits is Agent BloodRayne--a dhampir. Her father...a powerful vampire. Her mother...a beautiful human. She
inherited violence and power from one and compassion from the other. Luckily for the Society, she leans more towards her father's side when dealing with the supernatural threats of the world.
Based on Majesco’s popular video game, the BloodRayne comic books bring readers a darker look at the past. History and horror merge as Agent BloodRayne and the Brimstone Society slice their way through the demons of the night.
“The fan reaction to the first one-shot was simply amazing,” says Echo 3 Worldwide’s Steven O’Connell. “We knew we had a fantastic property featuring a hot, butt-kicking girl, with a throng of devotees, but I’m still surprised the book was able to sell out this quickly.”
“We will overprint the next one-shot, BloodRayne: Seeds of Sin in response to the first one-shots’ sell out,” says O’Connell. “Of course, we are also encouraging retailers to take advantage of this and increase their orders for upcoming issues accordingly.”
BloodRayne: Skies Afire (second printing) written by Steven O’Connell and Jefferey Stevenson, with art by Romano Molenaar, Marco Galli and Blond.
BloodRayne: Seeds of Sin is written by Christina Z (Witchblade, The Darkness) with art by Kody Chamberlain (30 Days of Night: Bloodsucker Tales) and ships end of March/Early April.
--Retailers can order BloodRayne: Skies Afire Second Printing (Diamond Item Code: DEC04 8345 F) or BloodRayne: Seeds of Sin (JAN05 2654) by contacting their Diamond Customer Service Representative
