@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.)

Hoping the shattered ASM 300 swipe version of 800 comes out ok.

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


They say that they will start shipping late next week

Did anyone notice in this months Marvel Previews the 30 variant covers of Fantastic Four? 9 are Fantastic Four #1, while the other 21 are other titles with Fantastic Four variant covers. And you know every shop will be pushing their store exclusives too...

The only Fantastic Four comic I'll be picking up in August is the Facsimile copy reproducing the original copy of FF#1 including adds. That looks cool. I wish they would do more of those of super key issues.

Actually, I think it's funny they are still yet available. Too many tired swipes. Orders not being sold out.

a) price.. Turned me off straight away
B) retailer is not one of the common ones (at least not for me)

Of all the things with variant covers that bug me, this practice of "fake" covers bugs me more than anything else. Captain America with a FF cover? Or The Incredible Hulk as Venom? Spider-Gwen version of Punisher? And these covers, they have NOTHING to do with the story inside? No, thank you.

It doesn't even make sense! Why get the Black Panther cover on Avengers, or the Squirrel Girl version of Star Wars, or whatever the hell? It just seems so wrong. If you want a zombie version of your favorite hero, then go the Archie route and write a damn story. Six issue miniseries: The Walking Dead Avengers meet the eXterminated Men.

Anyway, I just had a look at a couple of the FF variants. Four of them are ARTGERM, doing one each for the four characters. I saw two of them, and, unfortunately, they actually look pretty awesome. I might have to get a set of these...

Just got this today. It's the Amazing Spider-Man 800 Tyler Kirkham "Customer Appreciation" variant offered by UnknownComicBooks.






Oh wait, no it's not. It's just the "trade" version of this cover...I accidentally "zoomed in" there and got excited.




Hahahahaha...Psyche!!!! Had you going there for a moment, didn't I?

Kind of silly they just cropped out the middle of a trade dress and called it an "exclusive"....

It's actually a nice comic. And the corners of the spine, although not perfect, are much better than K-Myke's 1:500 variant (sorry, Brah)...and any of the regular Alex Ross covers that I've come across so far.

the " exclusive" one you refer to is still available at a few of the online retailers.

@Wraith thanks but I'll pass. I like the trade dress. The fan appreciation cover is one of the laziest variants I have ever seen, and I'm not encouraging the behavior of just cropping a part of a cover and trying to make cash out of it. Lacks any real creativity.

Kinda cool cover, because the Green Goblin makes it that way.
