I have just received an email with a press release from Papercutz regarding the release of the next Ninjago book, “Tomb of the Fangpyre” and the success of the books.

Below is the press release from Papercutz:
New York, NY — Papercutz announced an unprecedented 425,000-copy first printing of LEGO® NINJAGO #4: “Tomb of the Fangpyre” today, in response to record sales and continued interest from LEGO fans of all ages. The second and third volumes of the series launched at #1 on the New York Times Best-Seller list, a rarity for children’s graphic novels. The book will be available on August 21, 2012.

“Demand for these titles has only gone up since our nearly 200,000-copy initial printing of the first book sold out, and we can’t be happier as the best stories are yet to come!” said Papercutz Publisher Terry Nantier. “‘Tomb of the Fangpyre’ will be the first to feature Jolyon Yates’s amazing artwork -- we can’t wait for LEGO Ninjago fans to see it.”

Yates will be a special guest of Papercutz at this year’s Comic-Con International in San Diego, where he will be drawing free sketches for fans at Booth #2546 on Sunday morning from 10:00 to 11:00. A show-exclusive print from Yates will also be available as a free gift with purchase, limited to the first 1,000 attendees.

“I’m glad we’ll be able to have something unique for LEGO fans at the show, and I hope they will enjoy the print, which pays tribute to a martial arts classic,” Yates said. “It was a fun challenge to follow on the artwork by Paulo Henrique and learn how to draw the LEGO Ninjago world, and I’m looking forward to meeting our readers!”
