Comic News:
Sentinel Gets Collected
By Brian Jacks

05.12.03


Sean McKeever and UDON's SENTINEL was the first Marvel Tsunami title to make its debut last month, so fittingly, it'll be the first Tsunami title to receive a MARVEL MUST HAVES collection. But the series isn't being collected solely for being first...it earned its MUST HAVES on merit, the publisher says.

Due to hit stores on 6/4 - the week before SENTINEL #3 goes on sale - the 48-page Marvel Must Haves: Sentinel 1 & 2 collects the series' first two sold-out issues. And in what Marvel says is to further encourage new readers to give the series a try, beginning with SENTINEL #3, the series' cover price will be dropped from $2.99 to $2.50.

"Making the first two issues available again to anyone who wants to read them was one way to show support for Sean and UDON's efforts," said Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada. "But SENTINEL is quickly becoming a favorite new title for everyone here at Marvel, so we decided to go that extra mile and show readers how strongly we believe in it by lowering the price."

"I couldn't be more pleased with the response to SENTINEL thus far," added series writer Sean McKeever. "Many fans who were on the fence about picking this book up have said they were pleasantly surprised, and that its appeal runs across a wider demographic than only teens and kids. What they don't know is they've seen just the tip of the story's iceberg. Now, thanks to the MUST HAVES edition and lower price point on subsequent issues, even more readers will be able to experience SENTINEL from the very beginning along with everyone else."

Readers aren't the only ones responding positively, says Marvel. Even with strong initial support from the retail community that exceeded expectations, the company says it is receiving reports that reader demand is outpacing supply.

"According to our field reps, retailers are telling us they are reviewing their expectations on Tsunami titles and are beginning to consider they did not order enough," said Diamond Comic Distributor Field Representative Dave Hawksworth.

Marvel Tsunami will also continue to be the center of an aggressive mainstream media campaign, with upcoming stories focusing on the titles scheduled for the New York Daily News, the Philadelphia Daily News, the Chicago Sun-Times, the Chicago Tribune, the Seattle Times, the Cleveland Plain-Dealer and Teen People Magazine.

The 48-page Marvel Must Haves: Sentinel 1 & 2 ($3.99) is scheduled for a 6/4 on-sale date. Sentinel #3 ($2.50) has a 6/11 on-sale date.
