by Christian Ward in May 2021
BOOM! Studios has announced today that THE MANY DEATHS OF LAILA STARR #1, the premiere issue in a new original series from acclaimed comics creator Ram V (Swamp Thing, Blue in Green), superstar artist Filipe Andrade (Captain Marvel) and letterer AndWorld Design, that explores the fine line between living and dying in Mumbai through the lens of magical realism, has sold out at the distributor level before release!
In response to the overwhelming support from retailers and fans, BOOM! Studios has announced THE MANY DEATHS OF LAILA STARR #1 SECOND PRINTING, featuring brand new cover art by superstar artist Christian Ward (Invisible Kingdom) available in stores May 5, 2021.
With humanity on the verge of discovering immortality, the avatar of Death is fired and relegated to the world below to live out her now-finite days in the body of twenty-something Laila Starr in Mumbai. Struggling with her newfound mortality, Laila hatches a plan and soon discovers a way to be placed at the time and location where the creator of immortality will be born . . . But will Laila take her chance to permanently reverse the course of (future) history, or does a more shocking fate await her within the coils of mortal existence?
“The response to THE MANY DEATHS OF LAILA STARR has been so incredible before it has even hit stores,” said Filip Sablik, President, Publishing & Sales, BOOM! Studios. “We are thrilled to give everyone a chance to jump into the stunning world that Ram and Filipe have created, with a second printing hot on the heels of the series launch!”
