It only took one day for the trailer-esque DC Universe 0 to sell out at Diamond Comics Distributors. With all the mainstream press DC received from such outlets as The New York Daily News, the Associated Press, and The New York Times, as well as our own coverage, it is understandable that comic readers young and old went out to pick up this “jumping on point” issue.

In order to meet demand, DC is already back to press with a second printing that features a variant version of the original cover.

I think the sell out took DC by surprise, as the second edition won’t be available until May 28.

    Thankfully the local Forbidden Planet had plenty of copies :-) when I looked this morning they had about 30 copies.

    was definitely a worthwhile read!
