PiercingMetal Thoughts: Ever since Marvel started doing the Hip Hop covers I’ve wanted the issues to get a dose of the Rock and Roll or Metal stuff and here we are. While there are only five variant covers to choose from (and we’ve gotten a preview of four of them), I hope that fans will snap them up to guarantee additional ones in the future. I’d love to see KISS, Van Halen, Judas Priest and Black Sabbath be referenced in some covers if they choose to continue. These do look pretty awesome just the same and I wonder if you readers know which albums are being referenced on them. Sure a couple of them are really easy but do you “get” them all? You can let me know what you think about them all down in the comments section below.
