Villains United #2

June 20, 2005: “Villains United #2” Sells Out at DC Comics

The excitement of the upcoming INFINITE CRISIS continues to build as VILLAINS UNITED #2 has sold out at DC Comics two weeks after arriving in stores on June 1!

Now, the issue is going back to press for a new printing, scheduled to arrive in stores on July 7. This edition reprints the story by Gail Simone with art by Dale Eaglesham & Wade von Grawbadger, and features a black and white version of the issue's original cover by J.G. Jones.

"Working on VILLAINS UNITED has felt more like entertainment than work, and it's provided a unique and challenging group of characters to parade across the page," says Eaglesham. "Gail has given us some deliciously twisted and strained relationships to sink our teeth into. I thought it would do well, but nothing prepared me for the overwhelming support it has received from the fans. I owe Steve Wacker and DC so much for giving me the opportunity to work on this title."

"Reader and retailer response to VILLAINS UNITED and the other CRISIS-related miniseries has been astounding, and shows no signs up letting up," says Bob Wayne, DC's VP - Sales. "Retailers should place orders now for this new printing so they don't miss out."

VILLAINS UNITED #2 Second Printing is available for order now and is scheduled to arrive in stores on July 7 with a cover price of $2.50 U.S. Quantities are limited, so retailers are advised to place their orders as soon as possible.

Retailers may order the issue by contacting their Diamond Customer Service Representative or DC Sales Representative, or by email at reorders@diamondcomics.com.

  • VILLAINS UNITED #1 Third Printing is available for reorder.
  • VILLAINS UNITED #3 is solicited in the May Previews (Volume XV #5) and is scheduled to arrive in stores on July 7.
