Mel V.'s Variant Picks for February 7, 2018

What up Chu? Mel V. here with some variants for your viewing pleasure. It has been a good year so far for variants and I think this is a week to get up and out of the house early to hit the comic shops. Here is what I have for ya:

Dastardly & Muttley #6 Cover B Variant Bill Sienkiewicz Cover – Mr. Sienkiewicz has really come back into the spotlight. He has had some great covers on some great books. This is a great cover on a weird book. But small print run and big name artist can equal money in the bank.

Dejah Thoris Vol 2 #1 Cover B Variant Frank Cho Cover – I am gonna have to keep this “PG”, But Mr. Cho draws them how I like them. There is also a virgin variant with the same image and no logo.

30 Days Of Night Vol 3 #3 Cover C Incentive Gabriel Rodriguez Variant Cover – This is one of those covers that just catches my eye. Looks like a drawing out of an old Dracula novel. It just has something about it.

VS #1 Cover B Variant Esad Ribic & Tom Muller Cover – This regular priced cover is already sold out at Midtown. Gonna grab one of these for my PC.

Avengers Vol 6 #679 Cover C Incentive Nick Bradshaw Connecting Variant Cover – The connecting covers by Nick Bradshaw are gonna make a great set. I love the detail in the art. Plus, new character Challenger right on the cover.

X-Men Red #1 Cover J Incentive Pepe Larraz Young Guns Variant Cover – This is my cover of the week. Laura X-23 standing over the smoldering rubble after what you know must have been a big battle. Prices of last week’s Young Guns variant dropped a week later, but this is a great cover.

  1. Are you sure you guys aren’t stacking the deck?
    I just found JeeHyung’s X-Men Red #1 Virgin Variant of X-23 and it is ON FIRE
    Meanwhile, I never saw anything posted up here.
    Did you guys intentionally miss this or am I completely blind?

        1. Yeah. It was the Comic Mint/Frankie’s Comics/Sad Lemon/Golden Apple/ shared exclusive. I think we did make mention of it a while back. However, it’s not something you are going to find in stores tomorrow.

    1. It’s strange on that book someone from Hong Kong sold like 100 copies on eBay at $25 just recently with different accounts. So have no clue where those came from cheaper then offered through the stores selling this variant. Could it be a overrun/ or Chinese knock off I would stay as far away as possible from this variant.
