Boise, Idaho (August 19th, 2019) – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE!
Face front, True Believers! This is not any old press release from some unpaid corporate intern. This is the real nitty gritty from your ol’ pal Al of the Gem State’s very own Idaho Comic Group.
For the last few years, our distinguished competition over at Marvel Comics have teamed up with those irrepressible madcaps at ESPN to pay tribute to some of the bigger college football match-ups of the opening weekend. Some of the college football teams featured on these covers include collegiate gridiron stalwarts such as the Oklahoma Sooners, the Alabama Crimson Tide, the Clemson Tigers, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, “THE”TM Ohio State Buckeyes, and the Washington Huskies to name just a few. Heck, they have even featured our rascally regional rival: the BYU Cougars.
Well, what about the Boise State University Broncos?
Each season comic book/college football fans from Bronco Nation have been waiting impatiently to get a little love from from the magnificent minds over at mighty Marvel with a comic book cover tribute.
To that end, we at Idaho Comics Group, a local indie comic book publisher from Boise, Idaho, purveyor of the officially licensed Tarzan and the Comics of Idaho and Idaho Comics, have decided to take up that cause.
Idaho Comics Group has produced comic book cover artwork to commemorate the opening game of the season between the Boise State University Broncos and the Florida State Seminoles who will play at TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville, Florida. The cover pays homage to a very famous comic book cover that featured another monumental first time meeting. We will let you guess who those super heroes were after you see the image.
The Boise State University/Florida State game will air on Saturday, August 31st on ESPN at 5pm MT. Until then faithful fans, pax, amor, et intellectus!
