For those keeping track at home, X Isle #1 was one of the top three best-selling BOOM! books ever, right up there with ZOMBIE TALES #1 and CTHULHU TALES #1.

Diamond sold out in two days, which is the fastest sell-out we’ve ever had.

Might be time for a second printing…

“it’s a cool idea for a comic book. Fortunately, Giffen realizes that the best way for it to work is to concentrate on the characters involved in the story, and not rely on the gimmick or hook to keep people reading. No matter how interesting the initial concept may be, it would soon lose interest if not for the well-developed characters and their relationships. Our main character Mitch may be dead, but at least he’s not boring.

“I’m pleased to see the young and talented Kody Chamberlain getting the opportunity to work on a quality book.

“not only is he a fiercely intelligent designer and artist, he’s a heck of a nice guy to boot. His moody, textured pencils and strong use of colors will be a treat to watch develop as this story progresses. Setting the mood is imperative to any horror story, and Mr. Chamberlain is more than up to the task.

“Good storytelling, interesting characters and well-crafted art are what make a lasting impression on me.”
