11 December 2008 (Berkeley, CA) – Image Comics’ Shadowline is proud to announce two of their newest and most diverse debuts, SAVAGE and I HATE GALLANT GIRL, have completely sold-out at a distribution level.

“Shadowline’s steadfast commitment to diversity is what drives the entire imprint,” Shadowline Publisher Jim Valentino said. “Having two completely different titles reach a similar success simultaneously is a very important occasion for us and one we hope drives readers to future issues of these wonderful books.”

SAVAGE teams horror master Steve Niles with celebrated painted artist Mike Mayhew along with Dan Wickline and Jeff Frank to craft a hardcore thriller pitting werewolves against Bigfoot in an intense battle royale. On the other hand,  I HATE GALLANT GIRL, a runner-up in the Who Wants To Create A Superheroine Contest by writer Kat Cahill and artist Seth Damoose, takes a very different approach at the super-hero genre as a young woman rejected to be the world’s next Gallant Girl decides to take destiny into her own hands. Limited quantities of both issues may still be available at your local comic book store.

SAVAGE #2 (SEP082267) and I HATE GALLANT GIRL #2 (OCT082311), both 32-page full color comic books for $3.50, are in stores now.

Unlike press releases from other companies announcing sold out issues, Image/Shadowline has not stated if it will go back to press with either of these titles.  Guess you better scramble and check the bins at your local comic shop if you wnat to check these out.  If you want a taste of I Hate Gallant Girl, check out the Major Spoilers review.
