With anticipation for Civil War II rising, Marvel will be providing the entire event series with the deluxe cover treatment.
“Brian [Bendis], David [Marquez] and Justin [Ponsor] have crafted an event story that sends shockwaves through the Marvel Universe and says something about the world in which we live,” says Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso. “To greet fans that run into stores looking for ‘Civil War II,’ we are proud to deliver a deluxe cover treatment to each issue of the series.”
Marvel is calling their deluxe cover treatment, Power Metallic Gloss. These covers will appear on each main cover from Civil War II #1 all the way through Civil War II #7. The covers will be printed on heavier stock using metallic ink which adds a glossy shine and sleek finish enhancing Marko Djurdjevic’s dynamic artwork.
“Civil War II is poised to be the biggest comic book of 2016 and we wanted to give retailers covers that really popped off the shelves,” says Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel. “Much like what readers saw with the deluxe cover treatments on Secret Wars #1 and Invincible Iron Man #1, you can bet this cover will look like nothing else on the rack!”
Civil War II #1 (MAR160703) hits comic book shelves June 1st. The series will be written by Brian Michael Bendis with artwork from David Marquez. Civil War II #2 (APR160857) will arrive just two weeks after the first issue on June 15th. The final order cutoff for Civil War II #1 is April 18th with the second issue being May 9th.
