The first issue of the new Image Comics series Todd, the Ugliest Kid on Earth, has sold out at the distributor level the same week as its release and will be reprinted. The second printing of Todd, the Ugliest Kid on Earth #1 (DEC128159) will be in stores on February 20.
The four-issue miniseries by Ken Kristensen and MK Perker tells the story of a hapless, happy-go-lucky kid loathed by his deadbeat family and bullying classmates who finds himself in extraordinary circumstances. The second issue hits store shelves on February 13, and final orders from comic book retailers are due in on Monday, January 21.
Todd, the Ugliest Kid on Earth #1 was released on January 16 and received much positive critical attention:
“Todd, the Ugliest Kid on Earth is a fantastic book like no other. This oddball story features slightly risqué humor with fantastic art. Perker and Kristensen have a lot to live up to with the remaining three issues. If it’s anything like the first issue, we’re in for a great ride.” – Comic Book Therapy
“Kristensen and Perker are two endlessly talented individuals and Todd, The Ugliest Kid On Earth is the culmination of their shared vision. Give it a shot. You might be surprised.” – Geeks of Doom
“Todd, the Ugliest Kid on Earth is a fantastic mini-series to sink your teeth in. Ken Kristensen definitely shows that his screenwriting chops translate well to the ink and color form, as in one issue we already have a good idea of what drives each and every character.” – Watch Play Read
