Issue #1 will launch with a host of stunning covers including variants by Adam Hughes (Catwoman), Stanley “Artgerm” Lau (Spider-Gwen), Robert McGinnis (legendary James Bond movie poster artist), Joseph Michael Linsner (Vampirella), pin-up artist Romain Hugault, and a photo variant cover featuring model Tabitha Lyons (part of a set that runs across all 4 issues).
