KILLADELPHIA #30 Sells Out and Goes to a Second Printing!

The Eisner Award nominated Killadelphia from writer Rodney Barnes (American Gods, HBO’s Winning Time, and the record-breaking new Star Wars: The Mandalorian comic book series) and collaborator Jason Shawn Alexander, the artist who redefined Todd McFarlane’s legendary Spawn for a whole new generation, shocked fans with a surprise appearance from the same character on April 26.

Fans and collectors overwhelmed their local comic shops to grab this landmark issue, selling out of its first printing almost immediately. Today, Image Comics announces a second printing will arrive on sale May 31, and available for preorder now!

Rodney Barnes says “There’s so much to say about Killadelphia issue 30. First how grateful I am to the fans for supporting us in reaching thirty issues. How appreciative I am to Image comics for supporting us throughout the journey. How honored I am to work with jason and our team, and how amazed I am that the great Todd McFarlane trusted us with his legendary creation, Spawn!”


The Killadelphia series follows a small-town beat cop who returns home to bury his murdered father, revered Philadelphia detective James Sangster Sr. What he doesn’t anticipate is digging up a mystery that will lead him down a path of horrors and shake his beliefs to their core. The city that was once the symbol of liberty and freedom has fallen prey to corruption, poverty, unemployment, brutality… and vampires. Now, it’s up to Jimmy and an unexpected companion to stop long-thought-dead president of the United States John Adams from building an undead army and staging a bloody new American revolution.

In this latest arc, villains have become heroes, with the line between good and evil blurred beyond recognition. Philadelphia is ravaged by the war between Heaven and Hell, and our heroes are DEAD…But from the ashes of despair comes the spark of hope that will set up a bold new direction for this series…and things will never be the same. The sold-out, Eisner Award-nominated horror series reaches the end of this arc with even more shocking surprises! It all starts here!

Head to your favorite comic book retailer today to preorder your copy of this second printing!
