Eagles' Swoop Gets Origin Story From Marvel Comics
The Philadelphia Eagles announced that Marvel Custom Solutions has created a comic that explains the origin of Eagles mascot SWOOP. It tells the story of SWOOP's role with the Eagles, the fans and Philadelphia.
The comic was penciled by Tom Grummett, who has done work for DC, Gorilla and Marvel Comics.
"Marvel did a fantastic job of putting together a story that explains SWOOP's origin, as well as his role with the Eagles and in the Philadelphia community," said Brian Papson, Eagles' Vice President of Marketing, in a press release. "We enjoy working with their creative team on these types of special projects and we are always looking for fun ways to partner with them."
Here's a sample here. Last year, Marvel created a "Weapon X" poster for Brian Dawkins' retirement on September 20, 2012.
