On the cover of an extremely limited edition printing of Spiderman comic book, Chicago Comics on Clark will stand as the perspective victim of destruction. The issue in question is #666 where Spiderman will save comic book shops around the country from becoming extinct. This offer was open to any comic book shop willing to work with Marvel Comics on making history on a local level.
For the first time in its 61 year existence Marvel Comics has posed an option of cover personalization of the comic books they sell to retailers who carry them.
Each issue costs $2 wholesale with a minimum order of 500 sold at a cover price of $3.99. The issue drops on Wednesday and is expected to sell like gangbusters.
