Thor – Journey into Mystery transformed into Funko Pop!
After the success of the popular Pop! Albums series, Funko has now applied the concept to iconic comic book covers.
The Funko Pop! vinyl Comic Covers series is a combination of a Funko Pop! vinyl figure, based on the comic book cover, pre-packaged in a hard premium protector case, which is decorated with artwork from the comic book cover. The finished product just looks amazing and is a must-have for any Pop! and comic book collector.
The protective case measures approximately: 7.00″W x 10.75″H x 3.25″D and can be easily hung on the wall.
The Pop! Comic Covers series is divided into two separate lines within the series, with their own numbering, covering both DC Comics and Marvel Comics releases. The number of releases in the new Funko Pop! series is still limited, but given the number of comic books released by both franchises, the series is likely to grow in the coming years.
The last announced Marvel releases in the Pop! Comic Covers series are based on two comic book issues from the Journey into Mystery series. Originally published by Atlas Comics and then by its successor Marvel Comics, the Journey into Mystery series was initially a horror comics anthology before switching to giant-monster and science fiction stories in the late 1950s.
