Readers Are Over the Moon in Love with 'Jonesy'

Award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios is excited to announce that readers are smitten with Jonesy, the new limited series from heartbreakers Sam Humphries (Legendary Star Lord, Weirdworld) and Caitlin Rose Boyle (Buck n’ Lou & the Night Crew), as the issue has sold out through its first printing at the distributor level. The publisher has rushed to a second printing to fill demand.

Jonesy #1 saw an impressive 46% increase in retailer orders from initial orders to Final Order Cutoff. The debut issue saw another 25% increase when participating retailers placed their order for the second annual In-Store Convention Kickoff exclusive variant cover. This most recent sellout comes on the heels of activity following the In-Store Convention Kickoff.

Jonesy #1 second print ships with a modified cover by Boyle and carries a retail price of $3.99. Orders close on March 21, and copies are anticipated to be in stores on April 6. Jonesy #2 arrives in stores on March 16.

Jonesy is a self-described “cool dork” who spends her time making zines nobody reads, watching anime, and listening to riot grrrl bands and 1D simultaneously. But she has a secret nobody knows: She has the ability to make people fall in love! Anyone, with anything. She’s a teenager in plaid with Cupid powers. There’s only one catch—it doesn’t work on herself. She’s gonna have to find love the old-fashioned way, and in the meantime, figure out how to distract herself from the real emotions she inevitably has to face when her powers go wrong.
