A few thoughts
— Here are the original covers, by the by:
— The story has been in and out of print going back to its original publication more than 20 years ago. The price isn’t listed yet but Marvel Tales typically goes for $7.99, so that’s a pretty good price for such an essential read for Infinity-ites.
— The exact release date will be available once Marvel puts out its full solicitations.
