Retailers to Donate Comics to Military Through Operation Gratitude
Frankie’s Comics and The Variant Collective of The Comic Mint, Sad Lemon, 7ate9, Amorphous Ink, and Golden Apple have announced their variant for The Defenders #4 by Gabriel Dell’Otto. They also announced that all 3000 copies of the regular variant are being donated to the U.S. Military to be included in care packages sent to the troops by Operation Gratitude.
Amorphous Ink’s Joshua Cozine proposed the idea, and Kevin Fields (Frankie’s), Steven Finkel (Comic Mint), Simon Payne (Sad Lemon), Chris Bowers (7ate9), and David Dryden (Golden Apple) all agreed that Defenders was the perfect book to honor those that put their lives on the line so that we can sleep at night.
While the regular edition will not be available to fans, collectors won’t be completely left out. 600 copies of a virgin variant edition will be put up for sale on the various websites for $20, a very low price for a short run Marvel variant.
Defenders #4 releases on 8-9-17. The virgin edition is available to order now.
