Preview: Marvel's 'Tigra #1'

Official Press Release

Hey, True Believer!

Retailers face a tough prospect every month. After all, how are theysupposed to accurately order a new project when oftentimes all they have togo on is a cover and some creator quotes? That's why, over the last fewweeks -- as we have with DEADPOOL #65 and THING & SHE-HULK: THE LONG NIGHT-- we've made an effort to distribute interior art while the Diamond OrderCut-Off date is still open, meaning retailers can take a look at the previewart and then increase their orders -- and that you can run into your localcomics shop and say, "Hey, can you order me a copy of TIGRA #1?"!

Speaking of TIGRA #1, here's the first four pages in full color! On saleMarch 27th, The Order Cut-Off date for the debut issue is March 7th. Enjoy!
