Embossed Variant Cover of Planet Money’s: Mysterious Micro-Face #1.
A special, collectible edition of Planet Money’s first ever comic book. (i.e. same Micro-Face story, fancier Micro-Face cover.) Designed by interior artist Jamal Igle and “tastefully” embossed as an homage to the collectible covers popular during the 1990s comic book bubble.
The Micro-Face backstory: Planet Money went searching through thousands of public domain characters and fell in love with the 1940s sonic avenger: Micro-Face. He was everything a podcast could have hoped for: supersonic hearing, photoelectric vision, and the kicker -- a microphone strapped to his face.
Everyone owns the old version of Micro-Face. But today, for the first time, Planet Money has launched a new version that we can truly (and legally) call our own. Sam Salazar is a talented young business radio reporter -- yes there will be economics learning -- who is chasing the story of lifetime. In the process, he discovers his grandfather had a secret life as a Golden Age superhero. Join Sam as he uncovers his family history, a complicated business plot about private equity, and takes up the mantle of his grandfather, the original Micro-Face.
This is your chance to be part of Micro-Face’s new beginning!
