From the press release:

Image Comics/Todd McFarlane Productions is thrilled to announce that the premiere issue of Rat City from award winning writer Erica Schultz (The Deadliest Bouquet, Moon Knight: Black, White, and Blood) and artist Zé Carlos (Captain America, Strange Academy: Moon Knight)—the latest addition to the Spawn Universe mythology—has sold out completely at the distributor level. In response to its resounding success, Rat City #1 is being fast-tracked for reprint so that readers and retailers can continue to discover this new series.


Rat City #1 is a gripping narrative, set in a dystopian future, where corruption and inequality reign supreme. The series introduces us to former solider Peter Cairn—also known as ‘The Deviant’—whose transformation sets the stage for an epic tale of survival, redemption, and the blurred lines between right and wrong.


As the debut issue flies off shelves, fans and newcomers alike can anticipate an unforgettable journey into the heart of Rat City.

Take a look at the images of the first look at Rat City #2 provided by Image Comics below. The second printing of Rat City #2 releases at comic shops everywhere and digitally on May 15th.
