CIVIL WAR II Launch Parties Bring the Battle to Your Local Comic Shop!

Choose Your Side This June!

Do you stand with Captain Marvel or do you stand with Iron Man? Make your choice when the biggest comic of the year explodes into comic shops on June 1st! That’s right, we’re kicking off the Summer with the biggest comic event of the year and we’re making sure your local comic shop is armed and ready for Civil War II to engulf the Marvel Universe! Not only is your local retailer the place to be on June 1st to get your hands on CIVIL WAR II #1, but fans will also be able to receive special items exclusive to these parties at participating retail stores.

To ensure the launch of CIVIL WAR II is the biggest sales success of 2016, each retailer opting in to the event will receive a Civil War II Party Kit, containing exclusive promotional materials. Check your Marvel Mailer for more information on how to opt-in by 04/18 to ensure your store has access to these items and exclusives.

“War may be brewing in the Marvel Universe, but the party is at your local comic shop,” says Marvel SVP, Sales & Marketing, David Gabriel. “CIVIL WAR II escalates the conflict of its predecessor to new heights, and we’re backing retailers with huge incentives, promotional materials, limited edition variants and more. We’re committed to making sure anyone and everyone is buzzing about this event and that starts with making sure our retail partners are armed and ready to make CIVIL WAR II their biggest title of the year.”

All qualifying retailers will receive the following as part of the Civil War II Party Kit:

Civil War II Invitational Postcards
Civil War II Build Your Own Captain Marvel Piece 1 (of 6)
Civil War II Michael Cho Lithographs
Civil War II Putri Gwenpool Party Sketch Variant

But that’s not all! Retailers who qualify will also be eligible to order the CIVIL WAR II #1 Gwenpool Party Variant. From artist Yasmine Putri, Gwenpool is about to get in on the Civil War, but she may have prepared for the wrong one. This one-of-a-kind variant only available at Civil War II launch parties should not be missed!

The battle lines are drawn, and the heroes of the Marvel Universe are faced with a choice: wield the power of “predictive justice” to change the future as they see fit, or reject it and allow tomorrow to unfold unaltered. Choose your side this June as the marquee comics event of the year begins in CIVIL WAR II #1!
