Ouch. Burn. Daaaaaammmnnnn.
Marvel just issued this press release to comic shops asking for unsold copies of DC’s Blackest Night tie-ins for variant covers of Siege #3. From my understanding, retailers had to purchase large quantities of the Blackest Night run in order to get those fancy Green Lantern rings. Turns out there are tons of leftovers collecting dust. And now Marvel is swooping in to save the day. The press release says it all, folks. Wow.
In an effort to provide assistance to comic retailers in 2010, Marvel is offering retailers an opportunity to turn unsold comics into an extremely rare Siege #3 Deadpool Variant!
