    WORLD OF WARCRAFT SELL-OUTS CONTINUE AS ISSUE #3 GOES BACK TO PRESS

    WildStorm’s hit WORLD OF WARCRAFT series continues to thrill fans, with the third consecutive issue now sold out and going back to press for a new, second printing.

    “What truly matters in life is to live different kinds of experiences,” says artist Ludo Lullabi. “Whether they are real or virtual doesn’t really matter. As a game player, to be able to enter the world of Azeroth is a dream come true for me. As an artist, I hope I have been able to capture the essence of this wonderful universe and managed to be faithful to it, as well as to all the players who keep on writing and rewriting its history.”

    Based on the world’s most popular massively multiplayer videogame from Blizzard Entertainment, Inc., the WORLD OF WARCRAFT #3 Second Printing (DEC078146) will feature a black and white version of Jim Lee’s cover and is scheduled to arrive in stores on February 27.

    To ensure delivery on February 27, retailers must confirm orders by Sunday, February 17. Please note that quantities will be limited and may sell out before February 17. This item will not be offered on Final Order Cutoff. Retailers may place orders by contacting their Diamond Customer Service Representative or DC Sales Representative, or by email at reorders@...

    Other issues of WORLD OF WARCRAFT are available as follows:

    • WORLD OF WARCRAFT #1 Second printing (OCT078514) is available for order now.

    • WORLD OF WARCRAFT #2 Second printing (NOV078132) is available for order now.

    LOS ANGELES TIMES AND ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY PRAISE Y: THE LAST MAN

    The final issue of Y: THE LAST MAN continues to create buzz, with new, glowing reviews in the Los Angeles Times and Entertainment Weekly.

    A review in the February 7 Los Angeles Times calls the series “a comic-book masterpiece,” adding, “Yorick is well-meaning, intelligent, thoughtful, and, ultimately, irrelevant. He's the everyman we all hope we aren't.”

    The February 15 Entertainment Weekly includes a review of Y: THE LAST MAN, naming the series’ conclusion an “EW Pick.” Giving the issue a grade of “A,” the review says, “Y’s finale proves that Big Ideas were always the tattered-chintz window dressing for this dystopia’s relationships and moments of self-discovery.”
