PiercingMetal Thoughts: These covers look great but as you know I’m not one to generally add the variant covers to my collection. Those who might have some interest in doing this however have a great launching point since there are three brand-new series launching that month so it might be fun to collect the variant covers for those issues. Oddly enough I never managed to reach the original “Earth X” series and need to look into it. What do you folks think about these variants? Will you be adding them to the weekly pull list? Chime in down below in the comments section.
