I’ve been sharing these “variant covers” items for several months now and a LOT of them have been coming from the Image Comics/Skybound Entertainment side of the fence in honor of the companies 25th Anniversary. This batch seems to be a different celebration entirely and the different covers on these eight issues can be learned about via the press release that is provided below. As usual I’m posting this a couple of weeks before they hit the stands so they remain in your memory and can be inquired about when you hit your local retailer on New Comic Book Day. Dig in.
The Press Release:
Image/Skybound Entertainment introduces Italian comic artist Lorenzo De Felici to the United States market in a big way with Skybound’s line-wide variant covers which will hit stores this September. De Felici is the artist of a new, soon-to-be-announced, ongoing Skybound series sure to be a major hit with fans and critics alike upon its launch.
