Variant covers are available only to subscribers.
We are not able to order most variants as they are tied to the # of copies you need to order. It makes no sense for us to order multiple copies of a comic so that we can get a variant issue.
We believe that Variant Editions are not a good value. We are required to purchase more product to qualify for them, and we are forced to pass that cost on to our customers, charging more for variant covers.
This artificially inflated price does not last long because two months after the issue comes out, nobody cares. We feel this is not fair to our customers and we are adamantly against anything that harms you guys.
We believe that what’s important about comics is the content, not the wrapper publishers put on the comic.
