The next variant cover from this new deal will be available on Mega Man: Fully Charged #1 and Seven Secrets #1, both on-sale in August - additionally, Mercado’s art will be featured on variants to subsequent issues of both series. Then, Mercado’s art will be featured on a variant cover to Dune House: Atreides #1 in October and the main cover to the Firefly: Watch How I Soar original graphic novel in November.
