I’m going to let you decide if this is a good thing or not, as Marvel announced today that it will bring Foilogram covers for the upcoming relaunch of the Ultimate Comics line.
â€œThis is Marvel doing the nineties right,â€ explained David Gabriel, Marvel Comics Senior Vice President of Sales & Circulation. â€œWeâ€™re taking two of the most popular cover treatments of all timeâ€”foil and hologramsâ€”to create an all new kind of cover, as a â€˜thank-youâ€™ to fans whoâ€™ve been demanding this kind of variant! Retailers and fans don’t need to worry.Â We’re only doing this on a limited basis.Â You won’t see one on Ms Marvel #46 or Lockjaw and the Pet Avengers #4.Â We’re using them to mark very special occasionsâ€¦such as the launch of Ultimate Comics line.â€
Have fans really been demanding these? Who are they?Â Where are they from?Â I thought fans were demanding quality content at a reasonable price… While the concept feels like deja vu all over again (weren’t the 90’s bad for Marvel?), I will be checking out the Ultiamte Comics reboot/redux/flash foreward when the first issue arrives in August.
