Updated July 3, 2019: Marvel have adjusted their overship plans for July 17's Loki #1. Wheras last week the publisher informed retailers it would be doubling its pre-FOC orders, Marvel now says they'll instead give 50% additional copies - so essentially, instead of 'pre-order one, get one free,' it's 'pre-order two, get one free' for retailers.

No reason was given for the change.

Original Story June 28, 2019: Marvel is doubling retailers orders for July 17's Loki #1 and Invaders #7 at no extra cost. This process, called overshipping, has been utilized by Marvel recently for New Agents of Atlas #1, Invaders #3, Marvel Comics Presents #3, Spider-Man: City at War #2, and Magnificent Ms. Marvel #2.

This decision comes just a few days after the final order cut-off for both books, which was on June 24.

The publisher hasn't specified if these overships will be of the primary cover, the variants, or a mix.
