BOOM! Studios announced that it has signed a deal for 20 covers with Miguel Mercado that extends through 2021. The announcement of this new artist deal comes a few days after BOOM! declared that they had signed Peach Momoko to a cover deal as well (see " BOOM! Studios Signs Artist Peach Momoko").

Miguel Mercado is an illustrator from the Manila, and his work was featured previously in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Firefly, Over the Garden Wall, and Sparrowhawk. More recently, he had done a variant cover for Marvel Zombies (see "Preview: 'Marvel Zombies' Variant Covers").

“Miguel has been thrilling fans with his stunning covers on our Power Rangers and Buffy comics and he’s doing it yet again with his work on Mega Man, Firefly and Dune,” said Matt Gagnon, Editor in Chief at BOOM! Studios. “Miguel is one of our favorite artists and he’ll be bringing his dynamic style to some of our biggest series over the next year. We’re honored to expand our collaboration with such an incredible illustrator.”

Under this deal, his next variant cover will be for Mega Man: Fully Charged #1 (see " BOOM! Gets Mega Man"). He will also lend his talents to upcoming Dune and Firefly books.
