First it was FANTASTIC FOUR #587 and the death of Johnny Storm. Now it’s ULTIMATE COMICS SPIDER-MAN #160 and the possible death of Peter Parker. Are polybags are the new variant? In this case they’re both!
From the press release:
The Ultimate Comics story of the decade hits its climax as Marvel is pleased to unveil the two special polybag designs for Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #160 and Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #160 Bagley Variant. The record-setting creative team of Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley pull out all the stops for Death of Spider-Man and with covers so shocking we had no choice but to conceal them. It’s the story that will have everyone talking and the industry buzzing because in the Ultimate Universe, There Are No Rules!
In addition, Marvel has officially announced that there will be no overprint on Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #160, and the issue will also not appear on newsstands.
