Marvel has announced plans for each Civil War II main covers will have "power metallic gloss" covers.The covers, scheduled to be illustrated by Marko Djurdjevic, will be printed using metallic ink on a heavier paper stock, which the publisher says will add "a glossy shine and sleek finish."
“Civil War II is poised to be the biggest comic book of 2016 and we wanted to give retailers covers that really popped off the shelves,” said Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel. “Much like what readers saw with the deluxe cover treatments on Secret Wars #1 and Invincible Iron Man #1, you can bet this cover will look like nothing else on the rack!”
Dubbed "Power Metallic Gloss" covers, each main cover to Civil War II #1 through Civil War II #7 will be printed on heavier stock using metallic ink, adding a glossy shine and sleek finish, enhancing Marko Djurdjevic’s already dynamic artwork.
There are no plans for the Free Comic Book Day Civil War II prequel or the #0 issue to have this cover treatment.
Civil War II #1 is scheduled for release June 1.
