Eight Retailer Exclusive Covers from Marvel in January – Including Whatever Infinity Prime Is

Posted by December 1, 2017 Comment

Every month, Marvel offers retailer the chance to commission exclusive covers for certain titles, as long as they order thousands of copies. It’s an effective, if expensive way for both parties to a) get some promotion and create collectibles for the market b) up their orders. Begun by Dreamwave back in the day, it was popularised by IDW and now Marvel Comics does it more than anyone else with anywhere between five and ten titles a month.

And in February that means seven of them. We don’t know who the creative team of Infinity Prime in February is. But that shouldn’t stop retailers arranging exclusive covers for it…

  •  X-Men Red #1
  • Infinity Countdown: Adam Warlock #1
  • Star Wars: Thrawn #1
  • Lockjaw #1
  • Black Panther Annual #1
  • Doctor Strange: Damnation #1
  • Infinity Countdown Prime #1
  • Peter Parker : The Spectacular Spider-Man #300

Here’s what you might be looking at…
