We have some news that are not really quite news because we knew this was coming (phew).
As you well know we are big fans of Manifest Destiny, a new SKYBOUND title written by Chris Dingess with art by Matthew Roberts. You can check our reviews here:

Manifest Destiny #1

Manifest Destiny #2

Manifest Destiny #3

Image Comics just sent the following press release, and we couldn’t be more happy to see that this book has been so well received.

The hit historical fantasy adventure conquers new readership frontiers

Chris Dingess (Being Human) and Matthew Roberts’ (BATTLE POPE, FOUR LETTER WORLDS) critically-acclaimed MANIFEST DESTINY #1 has sold out immediately and will head into its 3rd printing. Readers can’t seem to get enough of the lush visuals and the shadow history/fantasy storyline.


“Historical fiction can be a gamble in comics… By keeping it weird and focusing on their characters, Dingess and Roberts make a great case for how well it can work.”
—Marykate Jasper, Comic Book Resources

“Dingess and Roberts have done a terrific job here, establishing the ugly side as well as the wonder of this expedition to the West. Manifest Destiny is looking to be one revelatory journey.”
—Michelle White, Multiversity Comics

“Manifest Destiny #1 promises to be some really solid storytelling, focusing on a time when the world was still a mystery to those who thought themselves above it, and a world which too often valued the pioneer spirit above basic human decency.”
—Andy Hunsaker, Crave Online

“It is way too early to start making best comics of the year lists, but we can safely put Manifest Destiny on the contenders list.”
—Cody Ferrell, Comic Book Therapy

MANIFEST DESTINY #1 has completely sold out at the distributor level, but may still be available in comic stores, and is currently available digitally on the Image Comics website ( and the official Image Comics iOS app, as well as on Comixology on the web (, iOS, Android, and Google Play.
