According to a joint press release from Harris Comics and Diamond Comics Distributors, VAMPIRELLA #1 became one of the fastest selling comics of the summer.
"The return of the classic VAMPIRELLA character has met with overwhelming success," Brand Manager Steve Leaf said. "Even with four variant covers, our Diamond inventory has been rapidly depleted."
"We've given the fans what they want," Harris Comics Editor-In-Chief David Bogart commented. "Mark Millar delivered an incredible story, but the retailers we spoke with cite Mike Mayhew's art as the prime reason why the comics are flying off the shelves."
Both publisher and distributor are suggesting that retailers up their orders for the coming 2nd and 3rd issues of the series.
