    I have no interest in varients...

    ...AND, for some unGODLY reason, my comic shop consistantly pulls the WORST cover for me.

    I'm just fired up because I didn't get the Darwyn Cooke cover for THE SHADOW #7.

      My LCBS does a good job of pulling the cover I want. And it's rarely a problem to change covers. I have a few of the black and white covers for GH and Kato from a dollar back issue sale (its the only way I buy multible covers) and I think I have at least 1 of the virgin covers. They usually rune the Dollar sale every few months so I plan ahead with a list.

        Too easy. The real challenge would be to try to put as big a dent as possible in the print run of that issue by coffee-staining as many copies as possible. Good luck with that.

          I only tend to buy one cover, usually the one that appeals to me best, though lately my LCS only has one in anyhow. ,But at least Dynamite tends to have a 50-50 policy, unlike Marvel's current policy of odering 250 copies to get 1 variant which the LCS then trys to sell for twice or thrice the cover price, THATS A TURN OFF! (And my LCS now has a wall full of Marvel variants it cant sell hahahaha!)

            Feeling indifferent

            I usually don't buy more than one cover.
            Masks #1 is an exception.
            I bought two different covers.
            I like Alex Ross' artistic approach... and usually end up with his covers. (Masks, T-Bolt and The Shadow.)

            There are a couple other exceptions but they have to do with other companies.
