Captain America #600 has already sold out and will be going back to press for a second printing, according to Comic Book Resources.
The second printing will feature a cover by Butch Guice, a frequent artist on Captain America. The art will actually be taken from an interior shot from the issue (see left). The reprint will come out on July 15th.
Cap #600 was unique in being released on Monday, two days earlier than usual. This required retailers to place special orders, which annoyed Image Comics partner Robert Kirkman (see Image Comics Laughs at Cap #600).
In a press release from Marvel Comics, Vice-President of Sales and Circulation David Gabriel said, "First and foremost, I'd like to thank all those retailers who made this amazing event possible by participating in this special advance release on Monday."
"Despite what might have been the largest overprint we've ever done for a book, copies sold out well before even the early on sale date," he said. "This is a great indicator for the excitement that we’re anticipating for Captain America Reborn. We’d also like to thank the fans and press for getting behind Captain America #600. Trust me, you’re in for a lot of fun and we’re glad to have you along for the ride!”
