Mel V.’s Variant Picks of the Week

What’s Up CHU? Mel V. back for another great week of books. This is a huge week. Huge. With all the new Marvel launches, plus New York Comic Con around the corner, my wallet is going to be broken for a while. Anyway, we are here to talk about variants and there are a ton of them to pick from this week. Remember, variants go up, some go down, but as long as you buy art that you like you can’t go wrong.

Let’s jump on with the big one:

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #50 Jack Kirby Retailer Variant– Turtles + Jack Kirby = Win. Seriously cool. And throw in an epic battle with Shredder and this one is the one to get.

With the Marvel relaunch coming I am totally feeling the Hip Hop Variants (editors note: Mel V. used to run an extremely popular Hip Hop underground show, he probably doesn’t want you to know that).
I am going to try and snag as many of these as possible this week.


That’s a rap (pun intended) for me this week. What variants are you chasing this week?

  1. I would definitely get that Turtles 50, if I can afford it. The regular cover cost $7.99 so I doubt most stores ordered a bunch to get this variant. The guts of this comic are important too.

  2. ton of kirby movement on ebay. some online store had 60 of them and 51 have sold. wouldn’t be surprised if these start selling for 20+ soon.
