Blind Packs Return to Panini Comics for Ultimate Universe #1

The two main publishers of the French-language comics market have definitively taken hold of the principle of “blind pack“, these opaque packages in which different versions of comic albums are hidden, which have a more or less rare cover depending on the luck of the purchaser. Panini Comics had started the festivities last year to promote the launch of the new series Miles Morales : Spider-Man. Urban Comics followed this summer for the arrival of the Transformers of Daniel Warren JohnsonThis fall, Panini will be back for what seems to be one of the biggest challenges of the month of September.

Ultimate Universe #1 multiplies the covers

It’s on the official website of Panini Comics which we note in fact on the product sheet of Ultimate Universe #1the first issue of the bimonthly devoted to series from the new universe Ultimate started this year at Marvelthat the said issue will be offered in its softcover version in a “blind pack“, in which will be hidden either the “regular” cover of Marco Checchetto (at 35% of the print run), or five variations by the same artist, the two rarest of which (10% of the print run) will benefit from a metallic effect. In the United States, the covers (which are variations of costumes on the same model, as you will have understood) were used for the various reprints of the first issue, which was very successful.

A fun way to offer this first bimonthly Ultimate Universeknowing that all the Softcover covers are sold at the single price of €16. In other words, each reader can be reasonable without buying packs of variants in the hope of having a simple different design or a metallic effect. In any case, we recognize the desire to Panini Comics and the entire sector to make this Ultimate Universe #1 a certain success in France, since in addition to this blind packyou can also find concerning the cardboard collector’s edition an exclusive variant at Pulp’sand another variant intended for booksellers of the Comic Shops Assemble. All that remains is to make a choice if the album interests you.
