Marvel sent us a press release today announcing that AMERICAN DREAM #1, the first in a five-part series about the future Captain America, has completely sold out at Diamond.

Hit the jump for the full press release, as well as some preview art from AMERICAN DREAM #2.

Ms. Captain America Herself Sells Out!

Excitement is building around Shannon Carter’s new adventure as American Dream #1 (of 5) sells out at Diamond! In this new series, written by Tom DeFalco and art by Todd Nauck, we follow Shannon as she struggles to find a balance between her personal and superhero lives. As the super
hero American Dream, she is faced with a fearsome foe that will do whatever it takes to make sure she is out of the picture.

“This book is a blast to read through,” said Augie De Blieck Jr of “This is the perfect title for [Nauck], which is why it’s so easy to see him excel with it.”

Ray Tate of says that “American Dream presents the reader with a refreshing change.” “…once she’s presented with a crime, she instantly becomes alive as a determined, strong, smart, athletic Avenger that energetically entertains the reader via Nauck’s artistic
sense of kickass. Some really nice color combos by Ro complete the aesthetic.”

Please note that copies may still be available at a retail level. Marvel at this time has no plans to go back to print with this issue.

With continuing buzz around Shannon Carter and American Dream #2 (of 5) on the horizon, Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on American Dream. How is Shannon going to be able to balance her love life and fight crime all at the same time and where did this new Crystal menace
come from? Find out in American Dream #2 (of 5).
