With Actual Promotion Behind It, IDW's GI Joe RAH #244 Sells Out

It's almost like promoting something helps sell it.

IDW Publishing has sold out of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #244, the first appearance of new Snake-Eyes Dawn Mereno in costume. The following two issues (#245 and #246) have sold out at Diamond Comic Distributors as well. It seems that pandering to a vocal minority does have its perks.

Issue #246 is the start of the Dawn of the Arashikage story which has the Mexican-American Mereno taking on the mantle of Snake Eyes for the first time. The character debuted in G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #226

Issue #244 was promoted with at least one tweet and cover art uploaded to PreviewsWorld, something IDW couldn't be bothered to do for another G.I. Joe-related book.
