171 - XOMBI 03/2011: Xombi #1 – 12,035 Writer John Rozum and artist Frazer Irving bring back one of the Milestone Media titles DC first published in the early 1990s, created by the late Dwayne McDuffie.
Given that Irving has gained quite some attention lately with his art on Grant Morrison’s Batman books, these numbers are rather underwhelming — particularly since the first issue was promoted with a 1:10 variant edition, increasing the likelihood of a big second-issue drop.
Without an immediate upward correction of the numbers in the next couple of months, I don’t see Xombi sticking around for very long, to be frank.
This is my favorite new (well, relaunched) comic in a long time. I’d love to see it doing better.
