Mel V.'s Variant Picks for 3/14/18

What Up CHU? Mel V. here with your weekly Variant picks for March 14th, 2018. If you have been reading for a while, you know how much I was against grading. Well people change. I mean I dabbled with getting a few books graded here and there, but I went bonkers lately. “Hi, I’m Mel V. and I’m addicted to getting comics graded.” With that said, it will be a new level of me determining variants, so its “Great Art”, “Low Print/Hard to Find” and of course “T-Shirt Worthy”. Now, the 4th level of greatness “SLABTASTIC”. This will now be known as “Mel V’s 4 Points of Excellence”. So let’s see if any of this week’s Variants receive the 4 Points of Excellence

Action Comics Vol 2 #999 Cover B Variant Kaare Andrews Cover (available on eBay) – What a fantastic rendition of Superman…one of the best I’ve seen in a while. I think this will be a sleeper and one to get and hold on to

Barbarella #4 Cover H Incentive Stephanie Hans Virgin Cover (available on eBay) – Hans has been on fire in recent weeks and is starting to get noticed by more and more people. This may bring out Hans completest and this cover could be one of those hard to find covers come tomorrow…stay tuned

Barbarella #4 Cover B Variant Vincent Aseo Cover (available on eBay) – Sold out at a lot of retailers. First time seeing this artist’s work. I Likes… I likes

Batgirl and the Birds Of Prey #20 Cover B Variant Adam Hughes Cover – The Legend himself makes it on the list this week. An easy buy for this week

Detective Comics Vol 2 #976 Cover B Variant Rafael Albuquerque Cover (available on eBay) – Insane cover definitely T-Shit worthy…matter of fact, Baltimore is right around the corner… I think this will be on one of my shirts (and no I do not sell my T Shirt creations)

Justice League of America Vol 5 #26 Cover B Variant Francesco Mattina Cover (available on eBay) – Mattina rules apply here…The Mattina Rules are…Just Buy no need for explanation lol

Scooby Apocalypse #23 Cover B Variant Ben Oliver Cover (available on eBay) – WHOA!!!! What a cover Ben Oliver has been killing it lately and this is a sure fire home run… im not sure of the print run on these but this has 3 of the 4 points of Excellence ..If this book is deemed hard to find then that’s the 4th Point. Cover of the Week for me

Vampironica #1 Cover D Variant Djibril Morrissette-Phan Cover (available on eBay) – Very Very cool cover could be an interesting series as well

X-Men Blue #23 Cover B Variant Clayton Crain New Mutants Cover (available on eBay) – I’m going Take A Gamble on this one…Clayton Crain is a fantastic artist and this is a fantastic cover…If Wolfsbane does a great job in the New Mutants movie I could see this cover taking off

  1. Ok, Scooby-Doo is a werewolf, Shaggy is Frankenstein’s Monster…Daphne is a vampire and Velma a zombie. So what the gell is Fred? An evil leprechaun? Ah. I love this cover anyway!

  2. T-SHIT worthy! Lol I read that and was like what the heck is a t-shit? It caught me before my cup of coffee kicked in.

  3. what’s a t-shit? and the mystery inc gang and detective comics variants look great. love you guys blind adam out

  4. The only issue I have with the Andrews Action Comics cover is Sups eyes.. what’s up with his eyes? Is he squinting cause he’s going to fast? Just looks kind of odd to me…
