Marvel Says Engage w “MARVEL BATTLE LINES” Collectible Covers In October

It’s been my practice to occasionally wait until the comics are closer to being released so it is fresh on the fans and their vendors minds and though this particular release hit my mailbox back in July, I waited until now based on far too many of our Pop Culture things coming at you every day. Let’s take a look at this brand new variant cover initiative.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Before I get into any editorial thoughts let me say “Thank you Marvel” for dishing out every single cover variant for this initiative. I will be frank and say how much I hate when a number of variants are lined out and only five or six get revealed. According to what I’ve heard, our diehard comic book reading fans love seeing them all in our posts and maintain how it makes hunting for them a whole lot easier. Hey, we live to serve the Geek Community here because we are among you as well. So as you know I am not one of those buyers who brings in the variant editions to his collection but don’t let me stop you. Please make sure to let your local retailer of these things early enough for them to get you a complete set or to save the ones you are most interested in for your pull list. In the coming weeks, I will be heading to the 2018 NY Comic Con and bringing you a whole lot of visuals and commentary. Perhaps I will get a chance to look at this game along the way so please do stay tuned to our Official Facebook and Official Instagram for good measure. Closing up I wonder what you think of these variant covers and which ones you’ll be picking up. See you next time.
