3D lenticular covers made a big splash during last September’s Villains Month at DC Comics, and now Marvel Comics is jumping onboard — but not for every title being published, just for a single variant cover.
“Deadpool” #34 will feature a 3D (which, according to the press release, stands for “Dashingly Dancing Deadpool”) cover by Mark Brooks. Retailers may order one copy of the variant for every 52 — surely a “New 52” reference — copies of the standard issue.
This isn’t the first time a Deadpool-themed variant has been associated with DC Comics. In 2010, Marvel offered a J. Scott Campbell “Siege” #3 variant cover for every 50 stripped covers of select DC Comics issues. More recently, a Deadpool 53 state birds “Uncanny X-Men” variant cover was released very close to “Justice League of America” #1, which featured 52 state flag variant covers. In fact, the tradition of “Deadpool” poking fun at DC covers dates back to at least the late ’90s, when “Deadpool” #17 mocked the “Faces of DC” month.
Brooks’ “Deadpool” #34 variant will hit in September, the same month that DC’s 3D lenticular variant covers return with its month-long “Futures End”-themed event. Check out the 3D cover and the solicitation info below.
