The great thing about you guy on this forum is that no matter how convoluted the title colors are it will get figured out... and make me want to go find more books.

I like how this went from me looking to buy to its current craziness while still buying the book and continuing the craziness.

They came in finally! 1 9.8 is already sold to a forum member here. 9.4 is available, and the other 9.8 is for the PC, unless someone wants to overpay for it, lol.

What other books are in with the Strange or Venom? I happened to be in my Walmart today and saw the comic bundles but none had those as the issue in front of the triplet.

Edit: sorry, should've looked back at the beginning of the thread. Slightly different question: are folks just buying the packs and hoping a nice book might be the second or third issue?

Picked up 2 Spider-Verse today! And another captain marvel and Ultraman.

@xkonk I’ve only gotten the Walmart covers I want and a couple for spec. The other books are mostly random dreck. some packs have the same books though (1 or both). there are some nice variants these packs, but I wouldn’t buy these in hopes of finding something “special”.

Yeah, I didn't see anything I wanted as the #1/front issue, so I didn't grab any.

I was pretty happy with some of the "dreck" books I got in the 20 3-packs I bought. Most of the packs (16 out of 20) had 1 of the lenticular covers, and several had some nice #1's that I missed, for examples - a Tony Stark Iron Man #1, and a Captain Marvel #1 (2014 series). One unusual comic included was another of the variants with the silver backs like @HulkSmash showed, a Fantastic Four # 13 with a cool Human Torch cover. Interestingly the barcode ended with 1331, do the first two digits represent the issue number?

@Donnied it will be something like; issue #13, variant #3, print #1 = 1331

I checked my local Wal Mart and nothing.

I may try one of the gazillion others around here.

I’d love to get another copy of strange academy.

Can you guys snap a quick pic of what the section looks like you're finding these in? I checked one I had high hopes for today but nothing was there. I don't actually know if they're available in Canada or not - I just always assume because we never get anything...

@Terry88 I'll try to get some pictures tomorrow if nobody else gets them sooner.

That would be really great, thanks a lot. I think I can picture where someone described before, but it seems all the stores up here don't really have sections like that. Most Magic stuff is in the toy isles and there are definitely no books in that section.

At my local places it was in line with the check-out lanes. Maybe even a closed lane. It had Magic but also some other random card/collectible stuff.

Up until end of 2019 I lived in Farmington Hills, a part of Metro Detroit. The Walmarts in that area did not have any comic books or the sections they are found in. It wasn’t until I moved to Nowhere, aka Hagerstown, Indiana that my local Walmarts had the cards and comics section, located near the front of the store.

If there’s a particular current Walmart variant someone is looking for, send me a message, I’ll check for it on my next pilgrimage into Town.

Correct, yet not all Super Walmarts carry them.

I went and found 2 copies of the blue title Strange Academy 1. I’m curious to see if CGC will even notice the difference in title colors.

What was the cover book in the pack that yielded the variant ? Do you remember by chance? I know I recently got a few copies of Yondu 2, 1/25 store variants from packs, but nothing quite as limited as yours

Any one have a blue logo copy with a blue back instead of a gray back? I picked up 3 more and 2 have a blue back. I’m wondering if this is an error since the “academy” ribbon is blue instead of purple, but the red in marvel logo does not vary.
