Virgin cover is sold out, not that I'm disappointed.

Curious as to why DC is not allowing the Dell Otto cover to be released, while every other cover variant has been shown. Must have some character on the cover that may give the current story away.

I'd make a guess to say that maybe they are limiting release of pics or other details, because of "saving the best for last" type of hype or "story release" as stated already, or they could be very limited - thus released on day - becomes "first come first serve" with just a few numbers for them (we'll say for hypothetical reasons ~500k for the main issue with a limited artist).

There are really too many variables existing too result in too many conclusions.

That would be wise as an actual good cover released will hurt the sales of the many bad ones. As of now I'm not buying any copy.

It's dell Otto or bust.

Yeah, I pre-ordered the hardcover. That will probably be it for me. I'm no longer holding my breath for a Action 1 homage.

I'm thinking about buying a couple of the blank covers. Maybe get someone to draw on 'em at HeroesCon.

Frankly, I'm glad I don't have to wonder about whether I should buy all the covers. That idea went right out with the bathwater art.

I just noticed the same thing and decided to go with the jock cover. Given I'm paying for shipping across the pond I went for the set of two (regular & mono). It wouldn't quote me shipping, but came out to $40 before shipping...figure even if it comes back $20 to ship it still a better deal than KRS (sold out btw) at $35 w/out signatures. So I may get this and the Dell Otto, but only if it's fantastic.

@SpeedforceKJ how did you get the website to provide you shipping?

Also, has anyone else had comics shipped from the uk? Do they always get opened for inspection? Little nervous about that aspect.

Also, if anyone knows about a discount code for Forbidden Planet, please pass it along as well.

I've bought comics from the UK from 2 different eBay sellers, they were not inspected/tampered with.

Got some Marvel western pence variants on the way now from the UK, from another eBay seller.

There is no reason they would be opened, under any normal circumstances.

It's like they put all the artists in a room, pulled put a stopwatch and said they had 5 minutes..

Maybe because they had plans for so many covers they have really bad commission fees for each artist and hoped they would do it for love / reputation on a key issue?

The Tony Daniels one had the right idea, but still forgettable the way its finished .

I mean, some of these covers are "okay". But not milestone worthy covers.

Not even close.

It's like DC and the artists are just phoning in artwork, for one of the biggest anniversary milestone issues of their flagship run.

Doesn't make sense. Unless the thought is that these will sell like hotcakes, regardless of the cover art. Yep, that must be it.

The 40s cho is growing on me.

My favorite is still the blank variant lol

it will definitely sell. though i wont be buying ... poor cover art, likely zero resale value and im not banking on a memorable story either - though would be happy if they pulled something out of the hat.

blank variant FTW !

When bulletproof puts out their 600 copy Virgin variant (guessing there will be a trade dress & virgin like they do for all Dell ottos) that'll be the only one that may rise in value. I got the jock ones because the price of the two signed comics are about the price of his signature at a con...plus thevirgin is only 1000 copies printed (rarest so far to my knowledge).

Now there's an Oliver Coipel cover (Midtown Exclusive). He's hit or miss IMO. No cover picture yet and he's not an "homage" guy...can't wait until they are all released and we can conduct a poll.

I agree. I had mentioned that it reminded me of Axle Rose from Guns and Roses with his Microphone stand. That is all I can think of when I see it.

Did you see the George Perez variant from Summit Sports, Comics & Games? Not my favorite, but it's out there!

@cseale0223 This isn't George Perez at his best, unfortunately... Given his health issues, I guess it's not a surprise. They could also have gone quick sketch style like Jim Lee, though. Who knows!

@thelastbard I hear you. A sketch would have been better. I already preordered it before the image was released since Im a big fan of George. I think the Jock chewing cover is the best.

oh my god just stop already, please. its just getting worse and worse.

we get AMAZING sht for dumb variant titles, but all of THIS is what we get for Action Comics #1000.

My head is going to explode if one more bad cover is posted. It may just explode anyways.
