PiercingMetal Thoughts: Now before you send me emails about the rundown of covers being incomplete, please be advised that the press were only sent “9” of the full “13” and if additional ones come to light I will edit them into this narrative. Traditionally I don’t purchase these sorts of variants because I have my money tied up in the occasional second issue of a title I like. It’s very rare for me to purchase variants unless it’s a first issue that I am planning on reading for the long haul. So what do you readers think? Will you be adding some of these variants to your collection? Chime in down below with the ones that suit your fancy the most. I always like hearing from you folks on this stuff. See you next time.
