Default 3D Covers

Seriously? We're back to "severely limited" 3D lenticular variant covers again?
Did we learn nothing from the 1990s that Marvel is able to toot that particular Pavlov's dog whistle again?
Why don't they just do a promo where they include a free forehead sticker with every comic for the month that spells "SUCKER" in reverse and then instructs you to go look in a mirror?

They're running out of gimmicks, they have to start recycling them now.

Anything for the quick buck to boost the lagging sales.

Those 3D covers aren't even original. They're retreads of previously used covers.
What's next? Die-cut covers? Embossed covers?
It's pretty easy to be cynical about Marvel when they go back to this old well again, screaming "limited!!" "Don't Miss OUT!!" to a bunch of new fans who are too young to remember how they played their fans just a few decades ago with all these gimmick covers.
Not to mention that transparent sales ploys like this have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with quality story telling - the one big thing that Marvel has practically admitted they can't seem to do a damn thing about.

Something Marvel did in for a cover recently I loved:



It's a variant but cost the same as the regular cover if you preordered. Which I did.

Yeah, that's great. Not what I'd normally associate with Steranko (by which I mean a different kind of great).

Love it too. Is there a color version as well? I'd kind of like to see it in black and white (not just inks).

I do have to say I have liked what DC has done with Rebirth where there books have two covers but they are the same price and do not cost Your LCBS more to get the variant one where Marvels variants do seem to cost comic book stores more to order


Hoping for a Phase 6 with FS Statues of the following

  • Moondragon
  • Mantis
  • Wonder Man (in the Perez Designed costume)
  • Havok (need a new one in his classic costume because the existing one is too expensive on Ebay)
  • The Red Guardian (The Defenders member-this one is a longshot)
  • and a REALLY GOOD Phoenix Museum pose

They have to charge more to make up for all the sales hits they've been taking for a while.
