Marvel Announces Five More Second Printing Variants

by Tony Thornley

It’s another week and that means another batch of Marvel books are getting second printings.

Hulk #3, Strange Academy #15, Venom #4, and Star Wars #20 each are getting second printing variants, and Star Wars: Darth Vader #20 will get a second printing of its ultra-popular cover depicting The Mandalorian and Grogu. The five covers (of which Marvel PR provided two) will be available in comic shops March 4.

Check out the solicitation text for the issues below and pick them up from your local comic shop on March 4.

Donny Cates and Ryan Ottley take things to a whole new level in Hulk #3, part three of “Smashstronaut.” There is another Bruce Banner. But where is his Hulk? The answer to that question? Well, it’s a doozy. And it’s about to change our Hulk’s entire course of action. The most insane, action-packed HULK story you’ve ever read gets even MORE epic. Hulk #3’s second printing variant cover will be a wraparound cover showcasing Ryan Ottley’s interior artwork.

Charles Soule and Marco Castiello continue to tell Luke Skywalker’s journey along the Jedi path in Star Wars #20. Luke has found a key piece of instruction in the voice of his teacher, Jedi Master Yoda. But the lesson Luke must learn will not be taught by Yoda, and it will take – and give – more than the young Skywalker could ever have imagined. Star Wars #20 stunned fans with surprise appearances by some of the Jedi from the High Republic era.

Skottie Young and Humberto RamosStrange Academy #20 sheds more light on the new Marvel villain on everyone’s mind—Gaslamp. It’s a very special day at Strange Academy: Battle Class with Magik and Wong! But not every student is competing at the same level, and Calvin has a trick up his sleeve thanks to his new mysterious friend, Gaslamp. Meanwhile, a student is missing, and Emily Bright won’t rest until they’re found. Strange Academy #20’s second printing variant cover will be a new version of Humberto Ramos’ haunting depiction of Gaslamp seen on the issue’s main cover.

The villainous Life Foundation is back – and they have Dylan Brock dead in their sights in Ram V. and Bryan Hitch’s Venom #4. Led once again by the insidious Carlton Drake, the symbiote-hunting organization has larger ambitions than ever before, and with Arthur Krane in the palm of their hand, they finally have the political leverage to make them a reality.
