PORTLAND, Ore. 06/26/2024 — The highly buzzed-about Blood Squad Seven #1 by Joe Casey (MCMLXXV, Butcher Baker the Righteous Faker) and Paul Fry (Spider-Man 2099, Star Wars) has sold out completely at the distributor level and will be rushed back to print this week in order to keep up with escalating demand.

“We’re psyched over the response so far to Blood Squad Seven,” said Casey. “Paul and I—along with the entire creative team—are putting everything we have into this series. Hopefully, more readers will get hooked as we ratchet up the tension—and the action—with each new issue. We promise the best is yet to come!”

Up next for readers in Blood Squad Seven #3, the truth is finally revealed! A serpent in the garden! As rot from deep within threatens to take down the new team before they’ve even launched, drastic measures are taken to control the story—no matter who has to die in the process! This exciting new issue will introduce Ripcord 3.0.

Spinning out of the recent Dutch miniseriesBlood Squad Seven explores ’90s super team dynamics through a contemporary lens and feature surprise cameo appearances from some recognizable fan-favorite Image characters.

Thirty years ago, Blood Squad Seven was America’s most popular superhero team. Its members were seen on television, on magazine covers, scoring million-dollar endorsement deals… They were celebrities and they were everywhere.

But that was then… this is now. And so, a new generation of modern-day heroes takes up the mantle—or perhaps, the poisoned chalice—fulfilling a promise made decades ago: to be the heroes that a fractured America needs.

While deconstructions of superhero nostalgia typically center around the classic characters of the Silver Age, Blood Squad Seven will delve deep into ’90s comic book themes with this reimagining of what would happen if heroes from that decade returned to action after a 30-year absence.
