First issue of title goes back to press

(San Diego, CA -May 13, 2011) Ape Entertainment is pleased to announce that RICHIE RICH #1 has sold out! It seems both fan and retailer excitement over the return of Richie Rich to comic book shelves was a bargain no one could pass up. This excitement coupled with Free Comic Book Day events nationwide lead to a phenomenal amount of advanced reorder and re-order activity causing the sell out to occur!
Ape Entertainment has informed Diamond Comic Distributors that they will be going back to press on RICHIE RICH #1 for a second printing. The second printing should be available by the end of May.

While Ape Entertainment and Diamond Comic Distributors are sold out of RICHIE RICH #1, comic shops across the country may still have the first printing of RICHIE RICH #1 available for sale. To find a local comic shop near you please use www.comicshoplocator.com.

“We are so excited by fan reaction to the new Richie Rich,” says Ape Entertainment COO Brent E. Erwin. “We were amazed to see a sellout happen just days before the on-sale date of issue #1. I guess it just goes to show that fans of all ages have missed having Richie Rich on comic shop shelves for the last 20 years. This also speaks very highly of the love and hard work that all of the talented members of the creative team involved with the project have put into it” says Erwin.

Part James Bond Jr. and part Indiana Jones with Donald Trump’s bank account, Richie Rich is an altruistic adventurer who travels the world helping the less fortunate. Join Richie and the gang from Rich Rescue on exciting, all new adventures sure to excite an all new generation! RICHIE RICH #1 went on sale nationwide on May 5, 2011.
