Mel V’s Variant Picks for September 5th, 2018

What Up CHU? Mel V here with your weekly Variant picks for Sept 5th. And just like that, summer is over. Time for the two biggest cons for me, Baltimore and NYCC! WOOOT WOOT! And you know what that means T-Shirt time. To be honest, there wasn’t as many T Shirt worthy covers as previous years.


Avengers Vol 7 #7 Cover C Incentive Eve Ventrue Marvels Spider-Man Video Game Variant Cover – New Spidey costume for the new Spiderman Game, as well as Mr Negative on the cover… This could have some legs in the future. Not an expensive buy in, but worth a shot


Border Town #1 Cover B Variant Jorge Jimenez Cover – The cover alone makes me want to check this title out, and then I read the synopsis..then I was like yeah.. gotta definitely check this one out


Deadpool Vol 6 #4 Cover B Variant Todd Nauck Cosmic Ghost Rider VS Cover – Cosmic Shost Rider vs Deadpool …LOL Its like he’s fighting himself as an inside joke. On the Unpressable Defects Podcast I joke that NO matter what Cates says, Cosmic Ghost Rider was meant to be Deadpool. So seeing both of them on a cover fighting is hilarious ..plus this is a cool looking cover


Deathstroke Vol 4 #35 Cover B Variant Francesco Mattina Cover – Even though y’all should know the Mattina rules by now..this one deserves some extra love. This cover is pretty amazing even by Mattina’s normal great standards


Elric White Wolf #1 Cover B Variant Julien Telo Cover – This is my indy pick of the week, I’m glad it has a pretty sweet variant cover to go with it. Elric has a pretty solid fan base and has been around for a while I believe his 1st Comic appearance was way back in Conan the Barbarian 14, 1972


Old Man Logan Vol 2 Annual #1 Cover B Variant Gerardo Sandoval Cover – I REALLY DIG Sandoval’s style ..takes me back to the 90’s dynamic style poses


Thanos Legacy #1 Cover E Incentive Stonehouse Variant Cover – I love the general idea and execution of how this variant looks and for originality I’m giving it Co-Variant of the Week


Cosmic Ghost Rider #3 Cover C Incentive Declan Shalvey Variant Cover – Spec-Wise this is my pick for Co-Variant of the week. There’s a lot of 1st appearances rumored ..one has to stick..right?? lol

    That Avengers cover looks familiar. Is it a homage?

    • JayClue says:

      The artist signed that Avengers cover as ‘After Jae Lee’. So it has to be a swipe or something of the sort.

  2. Mel V says:

    hmm I dont think so but I see what your saying Crisis #7??

  3. Kevin Verdine says:

    I got 2 of those avengers 7. I think it will be a Wednesday winner. Also border town b cover. I also got CGR #3. Family graves also caught my eye. I’m hoping it’s a good spec week. Great picks Mel V keep it up.

  4. Jetski says:

    I’m a huge Elric fan. I’ve preordered both covers.

  5. Matt C says:
