PiercingMetal Thoughts: By now the ardent readers know my stance about the variant covers and that is how I don’t generally purchase them for myself despite rallying behind every presentation of them from the publishers. These sure do look awesome, especially the Union Jack one by McKone but I will most likely be sticking with the single, regular edition of the first issue when it hits the stands in December. I’ve really slowed down my comic book purchasing since the holidays are coming and I need the money for other things. What about you readers? Are you insterested in any of these variant editions? Chime in down below in the comments section because I’d love to hear from you. See you next time. Stay safe out there.
