In a statement to Viz affiliates, Viz announced that the incredibly popular first issue of the Pokémon manga will have a second printing. The manga, which is a tie-in with the enormously popular Game Boy game, is quickly being snapped up by parents.
This is only the second time a Viz comic has been printed twice: the first one was Dragon Ball #1, and the final number of printed copies of Pokémon #1 will surpass the final amount sold of DB#1. Viz expects sales to increase as the holiday rush progresses.
