Deathmatch #2 will be the first BOOM! title eligible for DOC (Final Order Cut-off), which enables retailer to adjust their order closer to the release date. It is believed to have sold a quarter as many copies as its predecessor so far.

The comic, described as a "dark, psychological deconstruction of the superhero genre", sees the world's superheroes imprisoned by a mysterious supervillain who forces them to go head to head in an arena.

Writer Paul Jenkins teamed up with artist Carlos Magno for the project. The second print edition of issue #1 will feature a variant cover by Tom Derenick.

BOOM! is billing the series as "the superhero battle royale you can't get from Marvel or DC".
