Smith continues, “Donald Mustard and Christos Gage have such deep love for Fortnite and Marvel, and Sergio Davíla is turning some absolutely unreal pages. Having the amazing Leinil Francis Yu on the main covers and a killer lineup of Marvel artists on the variants was a real treat, too. It will be the ultimate team, where the best of Fortnite and Marvel will be represented.
