Get The Light

Press release below about a great opportunity to get on board the new Image series, The Light. You can get the first two issues in collected form on June 9, and pick up #3 on the same day. If you’re new to comics, or want some solid storytelling in your diet, then make sure you pick it up next month.

SEEING THE LIGHT

The first two issues of Nathan Edmondson and Brett Weldele’s THE LIGHT sold out at the distribution level

Image Comics announces the distribution-level sell out of THE LIGHT #1 and #2, written by Nathan Edmondson (OLYMPUS) and illustrated by Brett Weldele (SOUTHLAND TALES, THE SURROGATES). The two sold out issues will be collected under an all-new cover. Release of THE LIGHT Bumper Edition will coincide with the release of THE LIGHT #3 on June 9, 2010.

“We’re excited to see that THE LIGHT is burning brightly out there,” exclaims Edmondson. “This is an opportunity to let this story glow in the hands of more readers — and we’re ecstatic about that!”

THE LIGHT: In Oregon, a mysterious virus infects anyone that looks into an electric light. An abusive father blindfolds his daughter and together they escape town as people are burning alive from the inside out. A fierce, action-packed and gritty tale of survival, THE LIGHT is 28 DAYS LATER meets 30 DAYS OF NIGHT.

THE LIGHT bumper edition (APR108074), a full-color 48-page comic book collecting THE LIGHT #1 and #2, will be on sale June 9, 2010, for $4.99. THE LIGHT #3 (APR100463), a 32-page full-color comic book for $2.99 will arrive in stores the same day.
