Local comic book store franchise Comic Odyssey dropped a surprise for Marvel fans. As an exclusive, they’re taking pre-orders for their exclusive cover of War of Realms: New Agents of Atlas. The cover is illustrated by Mico Suayan and Rain Beredo.

On Mico’s Facebook page, he reveals Nadine inspired his rendition of Wave. He also posted a frame-by-frame comparison of his sketch and a photo of Nadine.
