Wonder Woman #219

August 2, 2005: DC Sends 4-Part “Sacrifice” Story Back to Press

WONDER WOMAN #219, featuring the shocking finale of the 4-part "Sacrifice" storyline, is now sold out at DC Comics, joining the sold-out SUPERMAN #219 and ACTION COMICS #829 as well as the nearly sold out ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #642.

Now, DC rushes all four parts of this cataclysmic story back to press for second printings, starting with WONDER WOMAN #219 Second Printing. Along with the story written by Greg Rucka and illustrated by Rags Morales, David Lopez, Tom Derenick, Georges Jeanty, Karl Kerschl and others, this printing features a new cover by Ladrönn plus two pages summarizing the events of the first three chapters with art from those issues.

DC also offers the SUPERMAN #219 Second Printing, ACTION COMICS #829 Second Printing and ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #642 Second Printing. DC will confirm in-store dates and cover information on these new printings soon.

"I'm overjoyed that DC is going back to press so quickly not only on WONDER WOMAN #219 but on the other 'Sacrifice' chapters as well," says Rucka. "We knew from the start that this was going to be a crucial story in the build-up to INFINITE CRISIS, and it's really nice to see that our belief was valid."

SHOCC Icon "This story has had a huge impact with readers and retailers, and sales on all four parts have been brisk," says Bob Wayne, DC's VP - Sales. "Retailers should place orders on all of these new printings as soon as possible to make sure they get sufficient quantities."
