Marvel just sent out the following announcement:
Following the immediate sellout of Siege #1 and announcement of no current plans for a second printing, Marvel is now officially confirming there will be no second printing. This follows Marvel’s statement to retailers in November that no second printing of Siege #1 would be made available due to the unprecedented returnability offer associated with the issue. However, Siege #1 Director’s Cut arrives in stores this March and features the complete first issue plus bonus material not seen before!
So they aren’t reprinting the exact comic, but they’re going to put out another edition with the content plus extras. How is this news, exactly? Maybe I should have put on the headline “Marvel Keeps In-Demand Issue Available”, because that’s more unlikely.
On reread, this is even less of an announcement, because it says “Marvel said in November that we weren’t doing a second printing; that’s still true.” So it’s news that they kept their word? The announcement continues:
Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Siege #1 Director’s Cut, Siege #2, and all Siege tie-ins as they continue to sell out and garner acclaim!
And that’s why they’re making a big deal out of this — they want to sell more, and they think telling people they can’t have something (even though they can) is a way to do that.
