Image Comics’ Historical Drama ‘Dead Romans’ #1 Gets A Second Printing

by Olly MacNamee

Dead Romans #1 by writer Fred Kennedy and artist Nick Marinkovich has sold out at the distributor level and is, as you have read in the headline, getting a second printing with an all-new cover.

“In ‘Dead Romans’, lush, beautiful illustrations bring to life a brutal tale of love and war from the birth of the Roman Empire. Arminius, a Germanic prince raised in Rome, has sworn vengeance against the Empire that butchers his people. He wants to make a queen of the woman he loves, Honoria, a fellow slave. Now, fifty thousand Romans will die to give her a throne she never asked for…or wanted.”

On hearing the news, Kennedy said:

“Working on Dead Romans with Nick and Allison has been an amazing experience. To see it being so well received is a great feeling. And if they liked the first issue, they’re in for a wild ride as the series continues…”

Marinkovich added:

“We started Dead Romans very simply over drinks and a shared enthusiasm for the possibilities. To see the end result catch the eye of so many readers, so quickly….We’re smiling…”

If you did miss out, or can’t find a copy, then look for Dead Romans #1, second printing and Dead Romans #2, both out on Wednesday, April 26th with Final Order Cutoff (FOC) for comic shop retailers this coming Monday, April 3th.
