PiercingMetal Thoughts: While I’ve long maintained that I don’t purchase most of the variant covers for the Marvel Comics or any other publishers series, I must add that these are spectacular and of you are collecting the series should become a part of your collection. I don’t actively read this title but did purchase the debut issue some months ago. Based on the storyline I might be looking into a collected edition when one becomes available after a certain number of issues is passed. What do you think of this one? Are you reading “The Magnificent Ms. Marvel”? I find that this is the perfect title to introduce young female readers into the hobby since its a younger heroine who is very likeable. Chime in down below with your own thoughts and let’s get that countdown clock set as we are now under “12” hours from the brand-new 2020 Year. Tick tock….
