PiercingMetal Thoughts: Hey I love a good variant cover every now and again so these are surely interesting. Alas I’m saddened that they didn’t choose to unveil the cover of “Spawn” and “Savage Dragon” in this mix but if and when they decide to showcase them I will revisit this narrative. I have to say that I love the “Sons Of The Devil” cover that looks like one of The New 52 “Flash” covers and the “Plastic” one which reminded us of the long ago wedding of Spider-Man and Mary Jane Watson. What do you think of these covers my comic book loving friends? Are they something you are going to add to the weekly pull list? Let me know in the comments section below. Stay tuned for more coverage for the Image Comics 25th Anniversary.
