NOWHERE MEN GOES VIRAL
Fourth issue sells out, gets second printing
NOWHERE MEN #4 by Eric Stephenson and Nate Bellegarde has sold out the same day as it was in stores, March 13, even after a stellar increase in initial sales of 34% over issue #3. The new printing will be in stores on April 10 and can be pre-ordered now (Diamond Comics code: FEB138044).
A tale of the fallout when four geniuses — the founders of the tremendously influential and powerful research and development company World Corp — clash and part ways, NOWHERE MEN explores the potential of science and technology, and the human cost of science without limits. The narrative transitions between the volatile partnership of the “Fab Four of Science” in World Corp’s early days and the present-day fruits of their work — a team of researchers quarantined in space as a virus coursing through their veins begins to manifest in unimagined changes.
The series continues to receive overwhelmingly positive reviews with the release of the fourth issue:
“Nowhere Men respects the intelligence of the readers, and it’s taking us to places that feel brand new. There’s nothing not to dig about that. Catch it now while it’s still ramping up.”
“Nowhere Men’s a trip fo’ sho’, but as we’ve established it’s a lot more than just some next-level sickness. In fact, the perfidious mystery behind the mutating virus and WorldCorp’s involvement is creepier than the virus itself. Between corporate madmen and a transmogrifying infection, you’re better off with the virus.”
-Page and Panel
“This book. Wow. What a masterpiece. That’s not a word I throw around lightly, either. Image Comics’ “Nowhere Men” is without a doubt the most incredibly designed ongoing comic book out today. Eric Stephenson, Nate Bellegarde, Jordie Bellaire and Fonografiks are producing a brilliantly cohesive package, and the fourth issue is dynamite.”
“There is nothing on the stands like Nowhere Men…. With every detail from Eric Stephenson and Nate Bellgarde, along with Jordie Bellaire and fonografiks, this world of super science is all the more realized.”
“”Nowhere Men” just keeps getting better and better, and if the spirit and energy on show here are any indication, there are some seriously fun issues ahead…. Comics are the new rock ‘n’ roll.”
NOWHERE MEN #5 will be in stores on April 24.
