Image Comics reprints one-shot from electro-punk impresarios Mindless Self Indulgence

Berkeley, CA - 30 November 2010 - Electro-punk band Mindless Self Indulgence has been acclaimed by music aficionados the world over. They've headlined music festivals and played with world-renowned bands such as Korn, Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance, Rammstein and System Of A Down. Now, Mindless Self Indulgence can add another item to their already impressive list of accomplishments: creators of a sold out comic book!

ADVENTURES INTO MINDLESS SELF INDULGENCE, a one-shot illustrated by Jess Fink (POPGUN, Chester 5000), has sold out at the distribution level, so Image Comics is ordering a second printing of the hit comic. The book, which will feature a new cover by Fink, will be in stores December 22.

"Here is the comic of the true tales of MSI... And the truth fucking hurts... and hurts and hurts and hurts!" exclaims singer Jimmy Urine.

Adds guitarist Steve, Righ?, "It's so damn good, I got the scars to prove it!"

"I don't think retailers or readers were prepared for how great this comic was going to be," notes Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson. "Given Image's track record with music-related comics, I would think everybody knows we're going to bring the awesome with a project like this, but the first printing sold out so quickly, it's obvious people need to be reminded. In other words: Don't miss out a second time!"

THRILL as rowdy fans throw junk at the band! SHIVER as band members are hauled off to jail! WATCH in awe as venues are trashed!
