Strikeforce #1, the debut issue of the new Marvel Comics team series by Tini Howard and Germán Peralta, is out in stores today. To celebrate, Marvel and Comixology have announced a digital directors cut of the issue, which is available now for anyone who pre-ordered or purchases the issue.

The director’s cut of the issue will feature process art including layouts, inks, and colors for the full book, as well as behind-the-scenes character designs and the script for the issue. This version of the book will be available for $3.99, the cost of the regular version, for the next two weeks; come October 10th, the price will jump to $7.99. Interestingly, if you took the plunge and subscribed to Strikeforce, you won’t receive the director’s cut, which seems odd. No word on whether customers who purchase physical copies will automatically be upgraded to the director’s cut.

Check out a preview of what’s included in the director’s cut, plus full details on the release, below. Strikeforce #1 is available for purchase now digitally and in comic shops.

New York, NY—September 25, 2019 — From the dark minds of rising stars Tini Howard (THANOS, DEATH’S HEAD) and Germán Peralta (AGE OF X-MAN: PRISONER X, CABLE) comes an all-new ongoing series without compromise…or mercy! A new threat is secretly taking over the planet – and the more people who know about it, the more powerful the threat becomes. Blade dealt with this threat once before, and hoped to never have to again. He can’t bring the Avengers in on this – not just for their own safety, but for the safety of everyone on Earth. So, he must recruit a team of heroes accustomed to darkness – a strikeforce. Blade, Angela, Spider-Woman, Wiccan, the Winter Soldier, Monica Rambeau and Daimon Hellstrom join forces to fight the fights that no other team can take on! And, for a limited time, you can get a behind-the-scenes look at the debut of Marvel’s latest black ops crew!
