As I’ve said elsewhere, although I dig the official in-game dance emotes for Bella Poarch‘s “Build a B*tch” and Rick Astley‘s “Never Gonna Give You Up,” I don’t normally like to play Fortnite. But hey, as a self-admitted patsy for corporate crossover events (bring back Amalgam Comics, please!)—I decided to read the June issue, Fortnite X Marvel: Zero War #1, written by Christos Gage and Epic Games’ Chief Creative Officer Donald Mustard and drawn by artist Sergio Davíla. And g-d dammit, I really enjoyed it. Although I won’t be logging into Fornite anytime soon to redeem item codes, I will be picking up the rest of the series.
Fortnite X Marvel: Zero War
With Zero War #2 arriving in local comic shops on July 13th, Marvel recently unveiled the variant covers for the third issue in the limited series. Learn more about the Fortnite/Marvel crossover event below!
Fortnite and Marvel heroes are currently fighting alongside each other to save both their universes from total annihilation in the pages of FORTNITE X ZERO WAR, a new limited comic series written by Christos Gage and Epic Games’ Chief Creative Officer Donald Mustard and drawn by artist Sergio Davíla. Fans who witnessed last month’s explosive debut issue and are gearing up for the second issue next week can now check out all six covers of ZERO WAR #3, on sale August 17!
ZERO WAR #3 will see the hunt for the Zero Shard continue into the Savage Land. Artists Francis Leinil Yu, Peach Momoko, and Ron Lim have brought the upcoming battle to life while artists Frank Cho and Carlos Pacheco depict exciting new Fortnite team-ups with Storm, Hawkeye, and more! Plus, Derrick Chew delivers a romantic piece of one of Marvel’s most iconic couples, Rogue and Gambit, who debuted on the Fortnite Island earlier this year!
Each first print issue (physical copies only) of ZERO WAR contains a redeemable code to unlock a bonus digital cosmetic in Fortnite! Digital single-issue comic book purchases of ZERO WAR do not include any redeemable codes for Fortnite in-game bonus rewards. For more information, visit Marvel.com.
Note that although Epic Games originally announced that digital comics purchased through the Marvel Comics app would include redeemable item codes, that is not true. Instead, only physical copies of the comics will contain redeemable codes to unlock bonus digital cosmetic items in Fortnite. However, there is one exception to the physical copies only rule: if you are a Marvel Unlimited user with a paid subscription and registered account, you can receive codes for all six cosmetic items by reading all five issues before October 28th, 2022.
Here are the in-game items Marvel and Fortnite fans can look forward to unlocking in the coming months:
- FORTNITE X MARVEL: ZERO WAR #2 – Stark Seven Wrap – Exclusive to comic buyers for over 2 months!
- FORTNITE X MARVEL: ZERO WAR #3 – Adamantium Claws Pickaxe – Exclusive to comic buyers for a limited time!
- FORTNITE X MARVEL: ZERO WAR #4 – New FORTNITE X MARVEL: ZERO WAR Spray – Exclusive to comic buyers!
- FORTNITE X MARVEL: ZERO WAR #5 – New FORTNITE X MARVEL: ZERO WAR Loading Screen – Exclusive to comic buyers!
- Plus any fan who redeems all five codes (physical copies only) will receive a new bonus FORTNITE X MARVEL: ZERO WAR Outfit!
