Issue #12 has sold out completely at the distributor level and is being fast-tracked for a reprint in order to keep up with growing demand. The reprint will feature new cover artwork by Larsen.
“Ant is a character that I’m super-excited to be working on and I’m absolutely thrilled to see that readers are as excited about it as I am,” said Larsen. “This is one of those books that I’ve wanted to do for a long time. I’ve put a lot of time and effort into this project and I can’t wait to share it with the world!”
