Wait so MAYHEW did that cover? Wow who is this guy? He came out of left field with ASM and now Vampirella?!

Would you ever sell this piece? I know you just got it.....but how? I want it.


He's been around. I've got a preliminary cover from him..




The earliest work I've seen from him was art on either Zorro or Lady Rawhide from Topps. Can't remember if it was one or both.

NFS - but does this mean that it is ok to buy OA of a store variant cover but not the store variant itself? 🤭

Oh course not. She shops at a 70's retro fashion shop and only buys dozens of the same outfit every time. It's the same place where Bruce Banner bought purple pants.

Picked up a few of my spidey variants today from LCS ( standard ones).. so, so good.. ASM 800 has thumped all over action 1000 in that regard..

If variants look this good im not complaining.. Give me more.. Moebius looks amazing in person and great to hold. Nervous about opening these books though.. My standard ross book looks like its going to burst open any minute.. Staple is well out of place

Edit : ramos cover is really great too.. 799 and 800 look fantastic side by side.

No fatigue here I'm afraid..

Between the thickness of the book and the flimsy paper it was tough to find 9.6 candidates of ASM 800, let alone 9.8s.

I agree. The paperstock used for the cover is too thin. Very tiny spine splits at top and bottom. Disappointed. Yet another reason to boycott! I preordered this in March by the way. This book was double bagged and sealed with a diamond sticker saying it was a 1:500 and yet it still suffered from some damage. Too thick of a book, too thin of a cover. bleh

@kaptainmyke every copy I've seen (and I've only seen cover A) has had this defect on both top and bottom. I'm wondering how the shop variants are going to fair. My unknown comic books "lazy" cover has shipped...ill let you know. Going to be hard to find any of these in 9.8, unless that's what you ordered (slabbed).

Might be hard work for these shop variants find books that the guaranteed 9.8 slabs.. Doesn't leave much hope for those of us who chose to buy retailer copies raw.

Which one is this?

@kaptainmyke Damn. It seems like the Marvel print shop has been pushing quantity over quality recently; Mayhew Venom #1's were all trashed & had to be reprinted, and I guess some of the ASM 800 variants came out looking like they'd been mugged. Hoping the shattered ASM 300 swipe version of 800 comes out ok.

Speaking of, any idea when that will be in @poka ?

I know.. Its one of my favourite black suit covers..

Irony being Web #1 was the official demerge of the symbiote with Pete .. Is asm #1 a remerge?

Aaargh...

@kaptainmyke My LCS had a 1:500 variant and multiples on other retailer incentives. The best of these was 9.4 or lower due to both the top and bottom interior corner damage.

That's a nice cover. You convinced me, Poka, so I bought a few. Even got one of the 9.8's on pre-order, which I haven't done yet for any comics. Seemed like a good price to be sure of that grade.

Where did you buy yours? From The Comic Mint? (I noticed Comic Mint prices are lowest, but don't know if it is too late to warn others. All the prices are pretty close, and Golden Apple are in CAD, so only seem higher in some cases.)
