Good news for Dynamite Entertainment and Red Sonja fans. Gail Simone’s first issue of the she-devil with a sword isn’t even in stores yet, and its already sold out at the distributor level.

These kinds of things happen quite often when the publisher isn’t quite prepared for a huge surge in sales, and it looks like Simone’s fans have responded by pre-ordering everything that has already been printed.

“On behalf of Team Sonja, I cannot begin to express my appreciation to the retailers for supporting this book so whole-heartedly,” says Gail Simone, writer of the new Red Sonja series and acclaimed author of Batgirl, Birds of Prey, and Secret Six.  “Out of thousands of things to order from each month, they chose to spotlight our book in shops around the country and I can’t say ‘thank you’ enough.  Even more, we are absolutely gobsmacked by the excitement and enthusiasm expressed by readers, many thousands of whom have never read a Red Sonja book before.  Nothing happens without you guys, and we humbly thank you from the bottoms of our little barbarian hearts!  Thank you also to the magnificent female artists who made all the sensational covers for this series, and above all, the spectacular Walter Geovani, whose dedication makes working on the book a joy.”
