Media Release -- BOOM Studios is proud to announce that THE ANCHOR #2 has sold out in one week, sending the supernatural sensation into 2nd printing.

Fans should keep in mind, while Diamond Comic Distributors is completely sold out, first printings of THE ANCHOR #2 may still be found at a direct market retailer near you.

Diamond Comic Distributors is making the second printing of THE ANCHOR #2 available for retailers to order immediately and the second printing will be featured soon in an upcoming issue of Previews Plus.

The second printing of THE ANCHOR #2 is also available to order immediately through BOOM!'s new relationship with Haven Distributors.

The second print of THE ANCHOR #2 carries a Diamond Code of OCT098129. The Haven Code is ANCHBOO002A.

THE ANCHOR #2 second print features a negative variant art of the Brian Churilla A cover for issue two.

Since its debut critics from numerous outlets have poured in with praise for the smash-hit series THE ANCHOR:

"…tight, vibrant and kinetic…. I have to admit, I'm a bit envious of Matt Gagnon, who is acting as editor on this one. He gets to see where the story is going well before the rest of us… Pick it up, it's on stands now." — Examiner

"… a top-notch story and what might be the most bad-ass first four pages of a comic book this year." — UVU Review

"A powerful… issue from Hester and Churilla that hits as hard as the title character." — Project Fanboy

"… story is strong and plots forward at a great pace…Issue Grade: A-" — The Pullbox

"…I was pretty impressed - I loved the fight scenes… One to watch… THE ANCHOR could quickly find a home in the hearts of those who hanker for Dr Strange and Hellboy type thrills." — Comic Book Review

"… filled with vibrant action and thought-provoking metaphysical exploration, this first issue successfully lays the groundwork for what looks to be a very intriguing, fun-filled series." — SF Site

"Don't you just love when a new comic you've been looking forward to finally come out...and exceeds all your high hopes?" – Project Fanboy

"This is a great read, quick to get through, yet immense in it's imagery. BOOM! Studios has been putting out some quality work, which, for being such a young company, is awesome. I've begun to look forward more to what they're putting out next than what larger companies are doing with their established characters. Keep it coming!"– Comics Bulletin

"If you're looking for something new I highly recommend you check out THE ANCHOR..." – Cammy's Comic Corner

"...quite effective..." – Eye On Comics

THE ANCHOR #2 features the second installment of the epic ongoing THE ANCHOR adventure and is written by Phil Hester, with astounding interior art by Brian Churilla. The first printing shipped with two covers in a 50/50 split and a third cover that was offered as a 1 in 10 incentive.

Recently, BOOM! Studios announced that in addition to Diamond carrying BOOM!'s second prints, Haven Distributors will also be carrying all BOOM! second prints. Retailers needing more information on how to order from Haven Distributors can call 1-877-HAVEN-50 or sign up on their website here:
