In a press release, Image said:
The new hit series A Righteous Thirst For Vengeance from New York Times bestselling writer Rick Remender (The Scumbag, Deadly Class, Black Science) and artist André Araújo (Generation Gone, Man Plus) has gone completely sold out at distributor level. Image Comics will be rushing to print this exciting first issue to keep up with the rapidly growing restocking activity.
It’s no surprise that A Righteous Thirst for Vengeance does so well, as the central concept of the series is one of the five essential comic book pitches every creator needs if they want to land a series of images on one of the five things the picture posts about, namely, “anti-hero criminals”. The other four essential pitches are “gods living in the world of humans”, “dragon men with insatiable desire”, “music as a superpower” and “the future, but it’s bad”. Excerpt from the press release:
In A Righteous Thirst For Vengeance, when an unassuming man stumbles upon a dark web contract assassin’s vicious plot to kill an innocent target, he turns into one. The professional meets Road to Perdition in this story of a family’s unlikely guardian hunted by wealthy and powerful men who are used to getting away with anything.

Mr. Araújo’s wonderful art gave me the confidence to do the kind of book I’ve wanted to do my whole career. It makes us both so happy that people take advantage of it.
And André Araújo said:
We’ve invested heavily in our approach to storytelling, creating a story that’s methodical, slow and mysterious. With such outstanding critical and commercial receptions, there is a great sense of reward in finding such a large readership so eager to join us.
