Comic book retailer Ariell Johnson has put herself on her store's retailer variant cover of November's Invincible Iron Man #1 alongside Riri Williams, the book's new protagonist (viaABC News). Johnson runs Amalgam Comics & Coffeehouse in Philadelphia, and gained notoriety as the first black woman to run a comic book store on the east coast. The cover was illustrated by Elizabeth Torque.
Additionally, series writer Brian Bendis has shared the lineart for the cover of February's not-yet-solicited Invincible Iron Man #4 by series artist Stefano Caselli on his Tumblr.
