My bet is he rips Normie in half....ooooh that'd be bad....then he'd have a green, red and maybe Harry could pick a new color....or venom can join with Harry and make a black goblin!!!


Remember Harry has a son. Anyway we’ll see


That's who I was referring to when I said "Normie".


Yeah - but I think Normie is gonna be safe

Agreed. Marvel wouldn't go THAT dark.

Something has to make spidey flip his lid and go back to symbiote too.. So someone on his side he generally cares about must get done in early.

Then I reckon he might end Norman for all the shenanigans over the years and two significant deaths of people Pete really cares about on his hands...


We'll all know soon ... Can't wait to read.

I remember when I was actively reading comics, I liked to get Marvel Fanfare to see the pages of pin-ups and covers-that-weren't. To showcase new artists, etc.
Now they just put out variant covers, it seems.

For me, if I want to look at a variant, I just Google it. Heck, I could print it out on a high quality printer if I wanted.

Do I need to own the book? Nope

KaptainMyke might be onto something here. This IS getting silly. This is from Dynamic Forces daily deal listing- (emphasis added):

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #800 RARE JOHN CASSADAY VARIANT ULTRA LIMITED ELITE GOLD SIGNATURE SERIES SIGNED BY JOHN ROMITA SR CHOSEN FROM THE FIRST 7 IN THE WORLD!!! (Regular MSRP $399.99)

Maybe I'll change my collecting emphasis to only collect books that were printed before noon.

$400...? Can pick up a Marvel Super Heroes #13 mid-grade for that kind of money.

do you think there was conversation at the dynamic forces corporate offices and they decided that the eighth one wasn't really collectible?

@infinityG there are other books in the deal (if that matters)

Ok, I caved... but only for Vampi. Her 50th anniversary is coming up in 2019 so I KNOW there will be tons of variants I will be buying for it.

Looks like yet another Betty Page swipe. Love me some Vampirella and Vampironica. But come on, folks.... this is just lazy. Gorgeous cover, but lazy.

I do admit painting silk sheets is NOT easy.

I will admit that I don't like the "add a slight something to the cover" variant idea. I think it's lazy and reminds you that the painting is edited via computers later.

I remain master of my domain. Still have not visited the box, and suspended it temporarily.

The break feels good. Enjoying my older books for a while, pissed off at DC for not closing out the Rebirth story properly anyways.

Now as for that original art “variant”... I’ll take that! Congrats on the purchase poka!

@Darkga - Thanks for confirming that I made the right choice. I wanted a Mayhew original art of a cover, but wasn’t sure about this one. But when offered I had to say yes!

Did you see that a few hours before they went live eBay SALES were already pushing past the $150 range? That was the raw copy. I think I saw a sale of the 300 copy limited edition of $600.

Incredible.
