Marvel Comics has announced the first issue of 1985 has sold out at the distributor level prompting the company to go back to press featuring interior art on the cover.

Anyone like this idea? I would much rather have original art on the cover (such as the art for the cover of 1985 #2 – after the jump, take it won’t you?) than something I’m going to see on the inside of the issue. Also, it seems the art being used on the cover seems to give away some of the joy found on the inside. Take for example the reprint cover image from Secret Invasion #2 that featured the massive Super Skrull invasion from the last page on the wrap around cover. I know it takes time to get new art created and to the printer in time to satisfy reader demand when a reprint is called for, but it makes the second printings less special in my opinion. Oh well, I guess that’s what you get for not purchasing the first printing when it came out.

In any case, following the jump, you can see the final page from 1985 #1, and the cover to 1985 #2.
