Creator Rob Liefeld's extremely successful hit making studio keeps on churning out the maximum amount of hits!
GOING OUT IN A BLAZE OF GLORY
GLORY #23 Sells Out, Gets Second Printing
BERKELEY, CA — GLORY, the second title in Image Comics' hotly anticipated relaunch of their Extreme line, has sold out of issue #23 at the distribution level, before it even arrives on store shelves on February 15. Image has immediately gone back to press and a second printing of GLORY #23 (DEC118223), with a new cover by Ross Campbell, will be in stores on the same day as GLORY #24, March 14.
GLORY #23 marks writer Joe Keatinge's and artist Ross Campbell's bold revival of the Rob Liefeld-created superheroine. Glory has returned to Earth -- this time, not to save it but to live as a human among humans. And there are two young women there who have been waiting for her.
Keatinge and Campbell bring a euro-comic-meets-indie sensibility to the superhero comic. This sensibility is most visible in the art by Campbell, who is known for his realistic and varied depictions of women in his books Wet Moon and Shadoweyes, but also present in the inclusion of new characters Riley and Gloria, through whom the reader gets to know the god-like warrior princess.
"Seeing such a different take on the superhero genre succeed has me thrilled," said writer Keatinge. "Glory is an atypical heroine and I'm very thankful there's such demand to see what we do with her."

About the Author - SuperginraiX
SuperginraiX is the biggest sap on The Outhousers' payroll (wait, we get paid?). He reads every issue of every crappy Marvel crossover so you don't have to. Whats worse is that he pays for his books, thus condoning Marvel's behavior. If The Outhouse cared for his well being at all, they'd try and get him into some sort of rehab center. But, alas, none of us even know how to say his name. For a good time, ask Super why Captian America jumped off the Helicarrier in Fear Itself. Super lives in the frozen wastland that is Minnesota with 15% of the state's population living under his roof: a wife he makes wear an Optimus Prime mask, two gremlins, and his mother-in-law.
