Studios is pleased to announce that DAY MEN #3, the critically acclaimed vampire noir series from writers Matt Gagnon (FREELANCERS) and Michael Alan Nelson (SUPERGIRL, HEXED) and featuring Brian Stelfreeze’s (WEDNESDAY COMICS) first sequential storytelling work since 2005, has sold out at the distributor level.

“Selling out of the first three issues of DAY MEN in a row almost feels surreal,” said DAY MEN co-writer and BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “On behalf of Michael, Brian, and myself, we can’t thank retailers and fans enough for supporting our book. This has been such an amazing experience, and there’s a lot more to come!”
For thousands of years, the world has been controlled by the “50 Families”—a secret network of vampire covens engaged in a timeless struggle for power. But when the sun rises, the vampires are forced to employ the services of a human who acts as their daytime fixer and protector. Trained for centuries to be the mortal soldiers of their vampire employers, the Day Men go forth at sunrise, alone into the world, to do the bidding of their sleeping benefactors.
In issue #3, war continues to rage throughout the vampire underground, as David’s role for the Virgo family comes into question. But will Azalea, the mysterious matriarch, cast David out in search of a more proper wartime Day Man?

“If you’re into a rich, alternate vampire story, Matt Gagnon & Michael Alan Nelson serve up a meaty one you can really sink your teeth into!” – Word of the Nerd
DAY MEN #3 second print ships with a new cover by Brian Stelfreeze and carries a retail price of $3.99. It is anticipated to be in stores on 4/23.
