If you are wondering what happened to that copy of The Stuff of Legend #1 you had your eye on, but now it seems to be missing, it’s probably because it sold out, prompting Th3rd World Studios to go back to press to satisfy the demand.

“From day one we felt this was the kind of project that had an opportunity to be something special if we could get enough eyes on it. We are happy to see that fans and retailers are giving it a strong chance to succeed in this difficult market,” said Th3rd World co-publisher Jon Conkling.

“The year is 1944. An allied force advances along a war-torn beach in a strange land, outnumbered and far from home. Together, they fight the greatest evil they have ever known. Never ending waves of exotic
enemies come crashing down on them, but they will not rest. Thousands of miles away, the world is on the brink of destruction. But here in a child’s bedroom in Brooklyn, our heroes, a small group of toys loyal to their human master, fight an unseen war to save him from every child’s worst nightmare-the Boogeyman.

Led by the toy soldier known as the Colonel and the boy’s faithful teddy-bear named Max, the toys enter the dangerous realm of The Dark. There they will face off against the Boogeyman and his army– a legion of the boy’s forgotten, bitter toys. Fighting to survive insurmountable odds, the toys will discover this is a battle not only for the soul of a child, but for their own as well…”

You better check with your local comic shop owner if you want to get your hands on the second printing, as the reorder window with Diamond is only going to be open for a short time.

    This thing was great, I haven’t picked up a random title like this since “Mouse Guard” and I got the same feeling about this that I did with that, just that it was something really special!

    This was a surprisingly engrossing story. The art was spectacular to boot.
