Marvel's reveal that Tony Stark (a.k.a. Iron Man) will be replaced by black teenager Riri Williams is one of the biggest stories to come out of the comic world lately. The major and very awesome character shakeup has now led to a string of sellouts.

According to a press release via Comic Book Resources, issues #7 through #11 of the Invincible Iron Man series are no longer available. But don't worry, they've sold out at the distributer level, so copies may still be available in your neighborhood comic shop.

The five issues will now be reprinted with new covers that feature Riri Williams stamps, which serve as visual teasers for her appearance in the upcoming comic relaunch written by Brian Michael Bendis. The press release states:

"First appearing in Invincible Iron Man #7, Riri Williams was seen creating her own, homemade Iron Man armor. Following the events of Civil War II, she’ll be upgrading to a brand new, cutting-edge suit of her own as she charges headlong into Marvel NOW! Be sure to catch up on all her current appearances in the pages of Invincible Iron Man #7, #8, #9, #10 & #11 when they all return to comic shops next month!"

The reprints will be available beginning Aug. 3. But before that happens, check out our complete guide to the next nine Marvel films and watch some cosplayers from New York Comic Con 2015 below:
