Marvel Shares New Fortnite Comic Covers, Details Included Cosmetics

In case you somehow missed it, a new Fortnite comic book series is set to hit the stands in June with the release of Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War #1 on June 8th from Marvel writer Christos Gage alongside Epic Games' Donald Mustard and artist Sergio Davila. As is fairly typical for comics, Marvel and Fortnite developer Epic Games have now revealed some covers for the second issue of the limited series -- and detailed the codes for digital cosmetics that will be available in each first-print issue.

"Spider-Man and his allies are led to the outskirts of Wakanda – but no one said getting in would be easy!" Marvel's description of Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War #2 reads. "Meanwhile, Iron Man and The Foundation launch a daring mission into the unknown and stumble upon a game-changing revelation!" You can check out the cover by Leinil Francis Yu and the variant cover by Ron Lim for the comic yourself embedded below:

According to Marvel, each first-print issue of the limited series will come with a code that folks can redeem for an in-game digital cosmetic in Fortnite that is, of course, themed after Marvel. These codes will grant access to these cosmetics ahead of said items becoming available for purchase more broadly in the Fortnite Item Shop. Additionally, it has been stated that "select in-game items will ONLY be available with the redeemable codes" included in each first-print issue. Also? Anyone that redeems all five codes will receive a bonus Fortnite Outfit in the video game.

You can check out the schedule of what each comic's digital code will get in Fortnite below:

  • Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War #1 -- Outfit
  • Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War #2 -- Wrap
  • Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War #3 -- Pickaxe
  • Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War #4 -- Spray
  • Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War #5 -- Loading Screen

As noted above, Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War #1 is set to go on sale on June 8th. The limited series will run for a total of five issues. Fortnite itself is, more generally, currently in the midst of Chapter 3 Season 2: Resistance, and is available on most major platforms in its latest form save for the iOS version.
