Under Pressure, Midtown Comics J Scott Campbell Riri Williams Cover Cancelled. One Of Them.

Posted by October 20, 2016 134 Comments

The other day, we pointed out that Midtown Comics was selling a retailer exclusive cover of the upcoming Invincible Iron Man #1, starring the fifteen year genius Riri Williams as the new Iron Man, after Tony Stark’s… um, fate at the end of Civil War II.

It kicked off quite a fuss, especially the armourless midriff-showing version.

It kicked off quite a fuss.

Which led to a campaign instead….

And it exploded as people did just that. Check out a few examples here….

 

J Scott Campbell, the artist, wasn’t responding.

Much.

With Erik Larsen joining in.

But now Midtown Comics has now confirmed to Bleeding Cool that the armourless cover has now been pulled as a result of the pressure. But the armoured up one will still be available.
