|Why is there a reprint being done on SUPERMAN: SON OF KAL-EL #5? They didn't sell out as far as I see. Maybe I'm missing or not understanding something.|

|Selling out an issue is the #1 reason to make a reprint -usually with a fancy pants variant|

I've seen a number of times a stack of second prints standing next to a stack of first prints at my LCS.

|I think they are reprinting most of the issues of that series. With like color splash covers.|

|I don't think they always announce a sellout. Most of the ones I hear about are usually ones that happen before or on release day. Since this issue is part of the whole bisexual reveal they have likely seen something in the numbers or market that provoked the second printing.|
