PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I’m not really the biggest gamer out there or a big collector of the variant covers, this is not a series that I will be snagging for the alternate covers collection. These days the budget has been allotted for only a select number of titles each month and that means the regular edition is all that I will be snagging. However, with that being said I know that the fans of the Capcom Universe of characters are going to eat these up. Now at the time of this posting there has only been a colorful Team Up Graphic shared and I am waiting on the individual covers. As they come along to release I am planning on editing them into the post so don’t mind this notion if you are reading the narrative and see “10” covers or more. Considering the amount of posts that I need to do here each and every week, its easier to amend a single post than put several up over time. What do you think about this idea for variant covers and about any of the covers that are now in place? Let me know down in the comments section below. See you next time.
