Marvel Comics will be offering Siege #3 variants to retailers in return for unsold DC comics. For every 50 covers of specific DC titles that retailers send Marvel before February 16, they will receive one ‘extremely rare’ Deadpool variant of the third issue in the current major miniseries.
The issues Marvel is asking for are six DC ‘Blackest Night’ tie-ins which, when 50 issues were bought by retailers, came with a promotional bag of lantern rings. The promotion saw a jump in sales for low-selling titles such as Booster Gold and R.E.B.E.L.S.
