Headline - Press release
Posted by Richard Boom on Feb 27, 2012
On April 3rd, over 1,100 comic shops worldwide will give fans the opportunity to be amongst the first to read Avengers VS. X-Men #1, the most anticipated comic event of the century, at special Avengers Vs. X-Men Launch Parties! Do you stand with the Avengers? Or the X-Men? That’s what we asked retailers, and depending on who they picked, fans will be able to pick up exclusive Avengers Vs. X-Men giveaways! We’ve loaded comic shops up with either Avengers (or X-Men) themed exclusive mini posters, buttons, variants, lithographs and more that no fan can miss! And with an Avengers VS. X-Men #1 Blank Variant fans will have the chance to add their own heroes to each team’s lineup!
“Avengers VS X-Men is getting the largest mainstream marketing push we’ve ever done,” explains David Gabriel, SVP of Sales – Marvel Entertainment. “With these special launch parties that have the most participants than any we’ve ever done – we want to make sure that this event is the most successful one for us, and retailers alike. When fans see all the cool things we have planned – they’ll definitely be back week in and week out for their Avengers VS. X-Men fix.”
