Wanted #2 Goes To Death RowPress Release
op Cow Productions is printing a new edition of Wanted #2, also called the "Death Row" Edition. Featuring a distinguishably re-designed JG Jones cover, this 2nd printing will feature the entire story of Wanted #2 and include several new bonus pages of material showing extras like changed scenes, deleted panels, and more. Wanted #2 Death Row Edition will ship to stores on March 17th, 2004, the same day that Wanted #3 will hit stands.
As writer Mark Millar recounts, "When McLauchlin called me up and told me this
issue had sold out in thirty-six hours I was excited for a second and then had
the most horrible feeling that the whole thing is just an episode of Punk'd.
You're all just taking the piss, aren't you?"
"The response to the bonus material from Wanted #1 was so positive that we wanted to reward the fans again with more extras in the Wanted #2 Death Row edition," says Joel Elad, Top Cow Director of Marketing and Sales.
