Official Press Release

As part of Marvel’s unparalleled efforts to provide support to comic retailers in 2010, Marvel is expanding their offer to retailers for a chance to turn unsold comics into a rare Marvel variant! The extremely limited edition Wolverine #1 Deadpool Variant will be made available to retailers who return the covers of select Marvel comics.

“We’ve received positive reactions from the retailer community, but also found many retailers saying they simply don’t have copies of those books to return,” explained David Gabriel, Marvel Senior Vice President of Publishing, Sales and Circulation. “After reviewing retailer feedback, we decided to expand the program to include more titles and allow more retailers to participate. The Wolverine #1 Deadpool Variant already has fans buzzing, so we’d like for every retailer to reap the rewards.”

Retailers – for every 50 stripped covers of the following comics from Group One sent to Marvel, you will qualify to receive one FREE Wolverine #1 Deadpool Variant. The 50 stripped covers can be any combination of the comics listed in that group and all submissions need to be received at the Marvel office at the address below by Friday 8/6/2010. Also included with the stripped covers must be your store contact information including Diamond Account # and email address. With boxes of covers arriving every day, Marvel urges retailers to get theirs in by the due date to guarantee themselves copies of this stunning variant.

For Group Two – Marvel will be accepting either 50 copies of one of the titles listed in this group, or a combination of 25 of one title and 25 of another. Marvel will not be accepting any other quantity adding up to 50. For example, Marvel would accept 50 copies of CABLE #24 but not 30 copies of CABLE #24 and 20 copies of DOOMWAR #2. Additionally, Marvel would also accept 25 copies of CABLE #24 and 25 copies of DOOMWAR #2 to qualify for one Wolverine #1 Deadpool Variant.

Retailers with any questions about Marvel’s Comics for Comics program, should e-mail helpme@marvel.com for further assistance.

Please note: No second printings, third printings, variants, are accepted as part of this promotion.
