Don’t miss your chance to collect all 20 variant covers, coming to comic shops this August!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: If you’ve seen these types of posts you already know that I don’t collect the myriad of variant covers unless its something that I really love and on the cover of a first issue that I am interested in anyway. Don’t let my practices sway you because I still think its rather cool. I’m pretty excited about the return of the First Family to the monthly comics and who knows, if the Disney acquisition of 20th Century Fox goes through, perhaps we shall find them involved in the Marvel Cinematic Universe at long last. Wouldn’t that be great. Now before I forget to remind you, please be aware that that in July the Fantastic Four will be part of twelve reprinted issues that are only one-dollar each. You don’t want to miss these at all and should contact your comic shop about the issues that were discussed HERE. What do you readers think about this variant cover grouping? Is it something you will be hunting for? Chime in down in the comments. Until we meet again.
