Champions #38 coverPress Release

The first new issue of Heroic Publishing's CHAMPIONS comic book series (issue #38), featuring the long-awaited return of Roy & Dann Thomas's CAPTAIN THUNDER AND BLUE BOLT, has completely sold out. No copies are available for reorder, and Heroic has announced that there will not be a second printing.

If you can't find a copy of this first CT&BB story in almost fifteen years, you may have to wait a while. The story, by writers Roy Thomas and Dennis Mallonee, and artist Benito Gallego, is scheduled to be reprinted in the third Captain Thunder and Blue Bolt trade paperback, but that collection will not appear until the "Merchants of Menace" storyline is wrapped up in a future issue of CHAMPIONS, most likely in late 2008.

In the meantime, you will be able to enjoy classic adventures of comics' greatest father-and-son superhero team, beginning with CHAMPIONS #39, on sale in late August, and with the first CT&BB trade paperback, currently scheduled for a mid-December release date.
