HIT #1 sold out of its 10,000 copy print run within a week of its release.

“We’re thrilled to announce HIT #1 has sold out of its first print,” says BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “HIT is one of the series I’m most proud of this year. It’s always a great feeling when something you believe in is embraced by comic book readers.”

WHY WE LOVE IT: We’re suckers for classic film noir, crime comics, and pulp detective novels. We love the secret history of law enforcement in our hometown, Los Angeles. Mostly, we love stories about good men making hard decisions in unforgiving circumstances.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: HIT is a dark crime drama filled with murderers, rapists, and drug lords…and the men who will stop at nothing to bring them to justice. If you’re a fan of CRIMINAL, PARKER, or TUMOR, then HIT is the series for you.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Los Angeles. It’s 1955. It’s dark. It’s sexy. It’s dangerous. Everyone has an angle. And while infamous gangster Mickey Cohen rots in a prison cell, Los Angeles ignores the blackest parts of the city’s heart…where clandestine groups of LAPD detectives moonlight as sanctioned hitmen knows as “Hit Squads.”

“Taking its name to heart, ‘Hit’ #1 proves to be a wonderfully surprising read with a compelling plot and complex characters, courtesy of Bryce Carlson in the writer’s chair and Vanesa R. Del Rey on art.” – CBR

“It’s mightily impressive – return to the comic shop and buy.” – Geeks Unleashed

“‘Hit’ #1 is a dense story with some great twists that will appeal to any noir crime fan.” – Newsarama

“As you can probably already tell, ‘Hit’ is noirish done right. The art looks great, the narration rings true, and the plot goes in the darkest of directions.” – Multiversity

HIT #1 second print ships with a striking new cover by Vanesa R. Del Rey with a retail price of $3.99 through Preview Plus and should arrive in stores alongside issue #2 on October 2nd.
