Will You Party With S.H.I.E.L.D. In Your Local Comic Store This New Year's Eve?


Let auld acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind? Let auld acquaintance be forgot for the sake of Hail Hydra.

This New Year's Eve, Marvel and your comic store would like you not to go to an end of the year rave, make ill judged moves on someone you suddenly find very attractive as of five minutes ago as you feel your life slipping away, watch fireworks in the local park or city square going "ooh" "aaah" and then vomiting in a bin, or sit around the log fire with your family sipping whisky and making life promises that you will never keep.

Instead they want you to go to your local comic shop and buy a copy of S.H.I.E.L.D. #1 with your fellow enthusiasts.

The S.H.I.E.L.D #1 party kit, launching on New Year's Eve will be conditional on stores ordering the comic at 125% of their orders for Original Sin #6.

Qualifying retailers will be able to order the S.H.I.E.L.D #1 Deadpool Party Variant in as many quantities as they like, and get one copy of the  S.H.I.E.L.D #1 Deadpool Party Sketch Variant. They can order the S.H.I.E.L.D #1 Young Guns Variant Set, the Blank Variant and the Skottie Young variant.

They will get a free bundle of twenty Skottie Young Lithographs and a free bundle of twenty-five Marvel 2015 calendars and a hundred SHIELD #1/Miracleman Annual postcards.

Party poppers, you'll have to buy yourself.

Retailers can get 1:25 variants on the Mike Deodato variant (below), 1:15 on the photo variant (above),

And they will also get a discount on ordering all their copies of SHIELD #1 and get an even bigger discount if they order 150% of their Original Sin #6 numbers.

Are you ready to party? Well, retailers are….
