Once again, Taco Bell is offering Marvel Comic books with their Kids Meals.
The fast food chain is giving out four new Marvel comic book stories for a limited time. Your kids (or, you know, you) can collect the X-Men, Fantastic Four, Iron Man and Avengers comics. Each issue also includes a one-page story by Gingerbread Girl artist Colleen Coover. Here is a panel of her X-Men story via DC Women Kicking Ass.
All four books were edited by Nate Cosby and the creative teams are as follows: Iron Man – Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener, Fantastic Four – Paul Tobin and Craig Rousseau, Avengers – Joe Caramanga and Derec Donovan, X-Men – Alex Zalben and Tom Grummett.
Apparently the X-Men story features the classic Xavier school and Nightcrawler! Also, although Jean Grey and Banshee are featured on the cover, they are not in the book itself. I have also been told that you may be able to purchase the comics at $1 a pop if you aren’t inclined to eat there.
Anyone think it’d be more appropriate for Subway or Blimpie to distribute stuff involving heroes?
