After only one day, the response to Civil War #1 has been tremendous. “We’re overwhelmed by the reaction Civil War has received on its first day, from retailers to long-time fans to those picking up their first comic with Civil War #1,” says Publisher Dan Buckley. “This is quite possibly the biggest thing Marvel has ever done and we’re glad that everyone who read the first issue is as excited as we are.”
Retailers are calling the release day of Civil War #1 the busiest day in comicsâ€™ history and report seeing masses of new faces coming in for the politically charged blockbuster thatâ€™s proving people are interested in stories relevant to today, and will read them in any form. Especially comics!
â€œMarvel Comics has a long tradition of delivering must-read summer crossover events, and it looks like they have another winner on their hands with Civil War,â€ said Diamond Vice President of Sales & Marketing Roger Fletcher. â€œMarvelâ€™s done a great job of promoting this series to retailers and fans alike, and early reports are indicating strong sell-through on Civil War #1. Congratulations on a job well done!â€
Fans new and old are scrambling to get Civil War; even the friends you always wished read comics. What better way to get them started than with the new-reader-friendly runaway success Civil War, and another runaway – X-MEN/RUNAWAYS, the all-new comic handed out this weekend at Free Comic Book Day!
