Though the news about these latest variant covers came up in January, I’ve decided to wait until they were closer to hitting the racks so those interested could request their comic book dealer to save or order them the necessary copies. These covers will offer up “The New Mutants” who will be the stars of their own 20th Century Fox film soon. Let’s take a look at the ones that were shared with the press. If any others arrive I will edit them into this same piece.
The Press Release:

PiercingMetal Thoughts: A lot has gone on with 20th Century Fox and the main thing is that the film division was purchased by Disney which means that sooner or later The X-Men and all their colorful characters will be back under Marvel’s control. Oddly enough, the aforementioned “The New Mutants” movie has been pushed back until early next year as opposed to coming out in April of this one. I like these covers but as I’ve noted in the past posts like this I don’t really purchase any of the variant covers. I’ve got my hands full keeping up on the titles that I like to read each and every month so an additional copy is kind of hard to justify. What about you readers? What do you think about these? Will you be adding any of them to your weekly pull list in March? Chime in down in the comments section below.
