Variant covers

Recommended Posts

Well I noticed that a lot of comics have variant covers.

What are peoples thoughts on variants?

I feel sometimes it's great to get a choice for cover. But now with every other comic having a variant, and the variant costing more with nothing else extra yet costing a bit more.

So what do people think of variants then?

Pretty much. I pay them no mind. Covers almost always suck regardless nowadays.

Every comic on the shelf looks like an early nineties issue of Wizard.

There's no story to covers now. Most of them are pin-ups or poses or overused action shots.

Heres an example:

Thor from Marvel comics, listening to an Ipod.

I found it funny, and then saw the price and said "Huh, really don't give a shit though" and put it back down.

Covers will usually be in the back of a trade anyway.

I love variants. I'm not concerned with collecting issues, so I'm just happy when more cover-quality art comes out. More desktop wallpaper for me. :D
