Berkeley, CA - 2 June 2010 - Less than a week after its initial release, entertainment impresario Rob Zombie's WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BARON VON SHOCK? #1 has sold out at the distribution level.

Image Comics is releasing a second printing of the first issue of Zombie's sordid study of the rise and fall of a minor celebrity, illustrated by Donny Hadiwidjaja and Val Staples, and it will be in stores on June 30, 2010, the same day as the second issue hits.

"What can I say?" asks Zombie. "It's awesome to hear that Baron Von Shock flew off the shelves. I love this book and I'm glad to hear that everyone else does, too."

In WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BARON VON SHOCK?, Rob Zombie returns to comics with a dark dramedy that outlines the fantastic rise and spiraling decent of celebrity. Being in the right place at the right time isn't always a good thing, as Baron Von Shock finds out first hand. His sudden rise to fame as a television horror host meets with unexpected results. Baron Von Shock delivers a roller coaster ride of emotion that only Rob Zombie can provide.
