Mel’s Variant Picks of the Week for 6/21/17

What Up CHU? Mel V. here with your weekly variant picks. Woot Woot! This is a good week for variants and a bad week for my wallet. Let us get into the books I find visually enticing this week.

Black Hammer #10 Cover B Variant Jeff Lemire Cover – Anthony covered this one earlier in the week, I think it is hilarious, I hope to see more like these

Darth Vader Vol 2 #2 Cover B Incentive Mike Del Mundo Variant Cover – I fell in love with this one as soon as I saw it. It just has such a great look and feel to it. I’m sure it will appear on a T-shirt one day. Co-Cover of the week for me

Grrl Scouts Magic Socks #2 Cover B Variant Bill Sienkiewicz Cover – Remember how I said once in a while there are covers so good, it makes you want to check out the issue.. well this is one of them. I missed out on issue 1 but I’m gonna check it out along with issue 2. Add to the fact that Bill Sienkiewicz is just awesome

Nick Fury #3 Cover B Incentive Fernando Blanco Variant Cover– A RARE cover swipe that looks better than the original.. could be a sleeper this week

Shirtless Bear-Fighter #1 Cover D Incentive Tom Fowler Nude Beariant Cover – I was given an advanced preview of issue 1. I started reading it like what is this crap, but, by the end OMG! This book is Hilarious.. in a time when there are a ton of serious comics out, it is refreshing to read something that makes you laugh. I really enjoyed the book, I hope this book does well. The Nude variant is a indication of how funny and slapstick this book is.. find it for cheap and enjoy the laughs

Z Nation #3 Cover E Incentive Lucio Parrillo Virgin Cover – Parrillo is killing these covers, mixes real art masterpieces with Zombies. I fell in love with these at issue 1. Issue #2 was a tough find (shout to Trey K for the hook up) I hope I can get my hands on 3 because now I’m obsessed with getting a complete set, Co-cover of the week for me

Swordquest #1 Cover I Variant Blank Authentix Cover – How sweet would it be to draw your own Atari Box cover? Some of the greatest video game art that ever came out came out for Atari, and a ton of it had nothing to do with the games. Blanks are highly collectable and sell well. Do you kids remember Atari?

      Hey Mel and Anthony, whats up with Darth Vader 2? They introduced a new character and the summary made no mention, yet back when Darth Vader 3 dropped few years ago the summary mentioned doctor aphra. So is this new character in issue 2 worth nothing? Or you think marvel dropped the ball and its worth getting?

      • Anthony says:

        I haven’t been to the shop yet so I am going to reserve making a comment. But who is the new character? I will check it out in a bit.

      • Jay says:

        A Jedi they claim stronger then Vader but i guess not good enough to mention in the summary
