BOOM! Studios’ IMAGINE AGENTS #1 Sells Out! Second Printing is On The Way

BOOM! Studios is proud to announce that IMAGINE AGENTS #1, one of its newest original series written by Brian Joines (Noble Causes) and illustrated by popular Mexican artist Bachan (El Bulbo, Justice League), has sold out at the distributor level (copies may still be available at the retailer level). The publisher has rushed to a second printing. (Read our review for issue 1 here).

The latest in a series of BOOM! Studios originals sell-outs, IMAGINE AGENTS #1 sold through its initial print run within a week of its release. Comic book fans should bear in mind that first printings of IMAGINE AGENTS #1 may still be found at the local comic shop nearest you. Not sure where to find your nearest comic retailer?

“The overwhelming response to our lineup of original series this year has been astounding,” says BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “IMAGINE AGENTS is the latest in what’s turning into a rolling thunder of sold-out first issues for BOOM! originals. I knew Brian Joines and Bachan had delivered something special, but the level of excitement for this series is even greater than I imagined (pun may or may not be intended). This series will put a smile on your face.”

WHY WE LOVE IT: Brian Joines’ story is one of wit, originality, and heart, complemented by imaginative and lovable art by Bachan.

WHY YOU WILL LOVE IT: Big action and bigger fun in the vein of “Men in Black” and “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?”, with a dash of Chew.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Ever try to wrangle an illiterate, 30-foot tall rock monster away from his five-year-old best friend? Or calm down a 400-pound, muscle-man rag-doll during her daily temper tantrum? For Dave and Terry, it’s all in a day’s work. As agents for I.M.A.G.I.N.E., they are responsible for keeping your imaginary friends in line…

Little do they know that six-year-old Elliot and his best bear-friend, Furdlgurr, are about to be entangled in a plan to change everything!
