      Hey Eric, thanks for the message. I saw the inside front cover posted somewhere online with a pictures of the cover and I was wanting to update the post with a high quality pic of the cover…still can’t find one so I just updated with what I could find. If you have a line on any good quality pics of the Jetpack cover please let me know. Thanks again!

      Craig, thanks! I saw this morning on PREVIEWS that it moved to next week’s list. I’ve updated things accordingly.
      Thanks again!

    so, is this a one time thing, or is every issue going to get released in color (as in a second series to go mad collecting, before the third tv show themed series starts in the fall??) i’ve already fallen WAY behind on all the variants as it is…

      It’s not a one-time thing as IDW intends to release more of the original Mirage Vol. I in color. However, how many they do this to will likely depend on how well sales go.
