Pop Kill #4 Hughes Variant

Pop Kill was a Kickstarter funded, four-issue miniseries and the variant featured here is the Adam Hughes cover variant featuring an embossed "virgin" cover.

Pop Kill #3 And #4 Variant Pledge

The #4 Hughes variant was available from three different pledges: $60 for it and a #3 variant, $175 for a full cover set of #3 and #4, and $400 for a "monster" cover set of all covers from the series. "Each order will come with a COA from PAPERFILMS".

Just over 260 copies of the #4 variant were backed on Kickstart from what PaperFilms claimed were "limited to just 350 overall copies". A number of graded copies (9.6 and 9.8) were also sold separately on the website.

Pop Kill #4 Interior Sample #1 Popso Sucks!

This issue was written by Jimmy Palmiotti and Dave Johnson, with internal art by Juan Santacruz.

Imagine a world where the two dominant and competing Cola companies, each worth billions, are owned by former Siamese twins who are now separated and have grown to hate each other so much they hire assassins, saboteurs, and espionage personnel to meddle with each other on a daily basis. Meet the beautiful DINA DELUX, a scientist in the Fizz division at POPSO COLA. She’s on the verge of creating a formula that will make soda 50% fizzier, keeping it carbonated longer than any other brand on the market. A breakthrough like this would put all the competition out of business in a heartbeat.

When Popso’s main rival FIZZ ONE COLA hear the rumors about the discovery, they activate their best man, JON PYLE, an oversexed mercenary, to take care of the situation.

Pop Kill #4 Other Editions

Above are the regular edition and an "adult mystery" cover by Amanda Conner (apparently also "limited to 350 copies").
