  1. Seems like DC is fully on board with the incentive variant koolaid now. I could count on one hand the number of DC issues that had incentive variants in 2019. Now there’s 5 in this one post.

    1. Yeah. Dc is fully rolling out 1:25 covers. Part of the reason is I think retailers who do store variants wanted a crack at the covers in bulk when they do store variants. I know that sounds odd but when you are doing a 3,000 print run cover that means 120 additional ways to break even.
