PiercingMetal Thoughts: I must admit that I haven’t done more than leaf through a copy of “Spider Gwen” at the time of this writing but SOOOOO many of my friends in the Comic Collecting and Cosplay community are absolutely in love with her so I am pretty sure that these variant covers will go over like wildfire. I think these are all pretty damned cool but I am not one of those collectors that really pick up the variant covers since I already snag too many books each month. What about you readers? Are you planning on getting any of these variant cover editions? Which ones speak to you as a collector the most? Let me know down in the comments section below.
