According to Marvel, Secret Invasion #1 has completely sold out at Diamond Comics Distributors, prompting the company to go back to press so fans can get their hands on the issue that has everyone at Major Spoilers buzzing.

The variant cover features the “big reveal” featuring well known Marvel characters exiting a crashed Skrull ship.

  1. I got around to reading this last eve and it is difficult fathom that the heroes (Cylon/Skrulls) readers have been following
    for months/years have actually been Cylon/Skrulls in all the past story arcs. I do not know about that? Not to mention 9-lives – Jean Grey is back from the dead AGAIN. Wake me from my shower on the set of ‘Dallas’ when the Marvel Zombie
    Cylon/Skrulls arrive.

  2. Not that it matters, but why did they crop Spidey? Did the graphic team not notice/care?
    Also, using a spread from the issue as a variant seems kinda lazy, don’t it?

  3. I hate these kind of covers that give away story. The end of that Blue Beetle story arc had JLI all over the front just a week ago. I remember thinking years ago, “Hey, maybe I’ll pick up that Countdown to Infinite Crisis reprint and OH MY GOD TED KORD DIED!”

    You can make flashy covers without the major spoilers, guys. We go to websites for that sort of thing.

  4. Riddle me this: Does lazily slapping together a variant image of ’70’s era Marvel heroes REALLY spoil anything. We read the freakin’ issue and can any of us even begin to speculate what’s about to happen next?

  5. I think with the rush job of getting this issue back to press and on the shelves before the second issue arrives is key to Marvel making big bucks with this series. We’ll know next month how many issues are estimated to have been sold to see if Marvel anticipated reader demand or not. If this was a sudden thing, and going back to press was necessary to meet demand, hiring someone to do a variant and get it to the printers and to the retailer in the next 20 days may have necessitated using a panel from the issue. Of course there isn’t much spoiling going on as this “reveal” panel has been all over the net since the issue was released last week.

  6. Is that the Scarlet Witch? Wow, i really dont see a way for Marvel to make up a story in which the scarlet witch we all know that caused the House Of M was really a reality warping skrull. Really.
    Im convinced that all those heroes in the ship are just skrulls dsguised to throw everyone off. =p
