Marvel has unveiled two tattoo-art style variant covers for King in Black #1 and #2 by Ian Bederman, who has tattooed King in Black writer Donny Cates.
Along with the variant covers, Marvel also revealed a previously announced temporary tattoo design, also by Bederman, which will be given out by comic book retailers alongside copies of King in Black #1.
Bederman will provide tattoo-style variant covers for all five issues of the King in Black limited series. King in Black #1 is due out December 2.
Here's a gallery of the first two tattoo variant covers, along with the temporary tattoo:
Original story follows
Jason Aaron got a real tattoo for the War of the Realms event, and for Marvel's upcoming King in Black event they are encouraging fans to get tattoos - well, temporary tattoos.
Marvel is sending out 25-pack bundles of the temporary tattoos to retailers, with every comic book store guaranteed to receive at least one bundle - with an additional one through in for every 25 copies of the main King in Black #1 cover they order.
For fans who for some reason might want an entire bundle to themselves, Marvel is selling them to retailers at $10 per bundle. If you buy a whole bundle and put them on your body, make sure to send Newsarama a picture! (Donny Cates, this goes for you as well!)
Unfortunately, Marvel hasn't shared an image of what the tattoos will look like - possibly the Knull spiral?
"After a campaign across the galaxy, Knull's death march arrives to Earth and, worse yet, he hasn't come alone!" reads Marvel's official description of King In Black #1. "With an army of hundreds of thousands of symbiote dragons at his command, the King in Black is a force unlike any Earth's heroes have ever faced."
The deadline for ordering the King in Black temporary tattoos is November 2, with expected arrival in stores December 2 - the same day King in Black #1 (of 5) goes on sale.
