Strong Consumer Reaction to the Death of Captain America
After the news of Captain America’s death broke and was picked up by over 150 national news outlets, retailers quickly sold out of all available copies of Captain America #25. A second printing is being shipped out by Diamond Memphis right now to satisfy demand for the title. Many retailers have also recorded an up tick in the number of titles sold overall, apart from Captain America #25. Orders for future books tied into the current story line have also gone up.
