Marvel Comics Asks Retailers to Hold on to Ed Piskor’s Corner Box

Marvel Comics has asked retailers not to sell one particular cover variant of X-Men: Grand Design #1 on its original sale date of December 20th, and instead keep it back until the 27th.

Due to a printer error, Marvel is having to reprint the Corner Box variant cover of the upcoming X-Men reworked comic by Ed Piskor. The one just made up out of corner box designs from the eighties. As a result, some stores are getting them, but some aren’t. So Marvel has asked for all retailers who do get this variant cover to hold it back a week until after Christmas so that everyone can catch up. Though they can sell the other covers X-Men: Grand Design #1 for the 20th.

Not complicated at all is it? What are the odds that most retailers will not notice or forget?
