Foundation_01.jpgBoom! Studios has announced that the Foundation has completely sold out.  In fact, in anticipation of fan reaction, the company shipped 20-percent more to stores.

“I’m a big fan of high concepts, especially those that sit right on the edge of what’s possible. When I pitched THE FOUNDATION to Ross [Richie] at BOOM!, he saw the potential in the premise and got behind it one hundred percent,” said creator Kody Chamberlain. “Now, with the first issue selling out, I’m extremely pleased to find readers and retailers responding to the book as well. John Rozum and Chee are doing an amazing job on the first story arc, and I’m thrilled at how it’s all coming together.”

Not only has the issue sold out at the distributor level, Boom! Studios also does not have any issues in stock, so check with your LCS to see if any issues remain. Boom! Studios says it is working with Diamond to see if a 2nd printing is in order.

The Foundation #1 is a five-issue miniseries created by Kody Chamberlain, that revolves around efforts to stop the unpublished prophecies of Nostradamus from coming to pass. The series is written by John Rozum with art by Chee. Paul Azaceta drew the cover for issue #1.

Paramount Pictures has already picked up the film rights to the title.
