Image Comics revealed that James Tynion IV and Martin Simmonds' Department of Truth #1 sold out at Diamond Comic Distributors with over 100,000 orders, and it's headed back to press.  It becomes Image's third-highest selling series launch since Eric Stephenson became publisher in 2008 (see "Erik Larsen Stepping Down"). Simmonds commented on the sell out:

“It’s fair to say that the response to The Department of Truth has been quite incredible," said Simmonds. "To know that so many people have picked up the first issue, and that the reaction has been so enthusiastic, is extra rocket fuel for us to make sure we continue making a book that keeps readers engrossed with every turn of the page."

A second print run of this book will be available at retailers on November 6.

Image also printed over 100,000 on two other recent releases: Spawn #310 and Fire Power #1 (see "Image Hits Six Figure Print Runs on Two Recent Releases").
