Variant Picks of the Week for July 28th, 2021

DC is the winner this week with the most variants that caught my eyes…  and first up is what I think is the coolest and likely overall winner so far.

Shazam #1 Steve Lieber Variant. Already seeing prices around the $100 mark. Shazam is still not a character most stores go heavy on so this one is gonna be tough to find out in the wild I think.


Robin #4 Manapul is just a pretty cool cover. Nothing ground breaking but it definitely is an eye catcher for me.

I just love this cover. Maybe it’s all the cosmic looking colors and such but Icon & Rocket Season One #1 (of 6) (Cover B – Darryl Banks Old School Card Stock Variant) makes the cut for this week.

Jamal Campbell does fantastic work and it shows with Other History of the DC Universe #5 (of 5) (Cover B – Jamal Campbell Variant). Just a great looking cover.

Avengers Mech Strike #5 Takashi Okazaki is a really kick ass Okazaki cover. Love it.

Mark Brooks does great covers. Black Widow #9 is in that category I think.

Black Widow #9 (Brooks Captain America 80th Variant)

Star Trek Year Five #23 is a pretty cool retro travel guide cover from JJ Lendl. It doesn’t get any better than this. I like Star Trek but I’m not reading this title yet these covers lately have me wanting to buy these.

Amazing Fantasy #1 has two standout variant covers that made this cut. First up is the classic looking Captain America variant by Kaare Andrews:

And then the very awesome Alex Horley variant:
