We report on a TeV outburst from the AGN W Comae which was discovered in high-energy gamma-rays by the VERITAS telescope array earlier this year (ATEL #1422). This object was detected at a high flux level of ~1.4 gamma-rays per minute by VERITAS on 7 June 2008 UT, which is twice as large as the flare detected on 13 March 2008 UT. Multi-wavelength observations by other telescopes across the electromagnetic spectrum are encouraged.
