Looks like Marvel Comics will be seeding this one early. Ba-dum-dum-tish. As part of Marvel’s promotions for the launch of Jonathan Hickman‘s House Of X and Powers Of X with Pepe Larraz, RB Silva and Marte Garcia. Comic book retailers who order a set number of copies – at a guess, set at 200% or more of their orders for Uncanny X-Men #17, will get the party promotion package. Which means promotional material, being able to order the Party variant covers, getting very rare premium cover variants, one or two per store… and twenty-five packets of seeds. Stores who want more can buy more 25 packs for ten bucks – though they will still need to be given away for free to customers.
Dubbed the House Of X/Powers Of X Seed Packets, these will be sent free in bundles of 25 to party-participating stores. I do not as of yet, know the significance. Though there are definitely garden scenes and floral imagery in the upcoming series. Roots, branches, flowers all blooming….
Does anyone have any ideas? From small acorns, etc etc…
