Django Unchained Comic News: Issue #2 Release Date, Hardcover Book, and More

django unchained comic cover issue 2

This is a variant cover of the Django Unchained Issue #2 comic done by artist Mark Chiarello. Chiarello is best known for his Terminal City covers. Vertigo, who is publishing the comic, claims that Django Unchained Issue #2 will be released on February 13th, 2013. I’ve seen this release date pushed back at least three times, though, so I’ll believe it when I see it.

In other Django Unchained comic news:

  • I have created a new Django Unchained Comic Page which consolidates all information about the comic, including release dates, covers, and preview scans, into one convenient place.
  • Django Unchained Issue #1 is getting a second printing! Its first run sold out, so a second printing will be issued on February 6th. Amazon is still selling paper copies and Kindle copies of Issue #1.
  • There will eventually be a hardcover book featuring all Django Unchained issues. This will be released on September 3rd, 2013. Amazon is already has a product page up for it and is now taking pre-orders.

Check out this insightful read:  ”Django Unchained Producer’s Diary: Part 1” (scroll down past the Django Unchained trailer to read it). This was written by Reginald Hudlin who is credited as a producer in Django Unchained. You may know him from his work as executive producer of The Boondocks.

“But the most powerful statement was from one of the background actors who introduced himself as a local minister. He told me that working on the film all week had inspired one of his greatest sermons. He said that after seeing what our ancestors went through, there was no reason for them to have any hope that life would ever change. Yet they did have faith in the future … and that faith was rewarded. The proof is all of us working together on this project.”
