Wow, that's quite a few covers. I'm not a huge fan of the variant covers. It's more the idea of paying more for a really cool cover. It's bad enough how much comics cost these days. I'm not going to shell out more for the same insides. I do like the 50-50 covers. At least that way, you have a choice which cover you want. Iron Man's going to have three variants? Wonder what the distribution ratio will be for those. I suppose the retailers will be oredering more copies to get a hold of those variants. Funny how Marvel is really pushing Iron Man all of a sudden. You'd think he has a movie or something coming out...
Marvel is proud to unveil three new variants covers to this May’s hotly anticipated Invincible Iron Man #1! From legendary Iron Man artist Bob Layton (Iron Man: Legacy Of Doom), plus rising star artists Billy Tan (Uncanny X-Men) and Marko Djurdjevic (Thor), come three stunning new covers to the new series from red-hot writer Matt Fraction (Immortal Iron Fist, Punisher War Journal, upcoming Uncanny X-Men) and acclaimed artist Salvador Larroca (Amazing Spider-Man, Uncanny X-Men)! These covers join the powerful 50/50 covers from Larroca and Marvel Editor-In-Chief Joe Quesada!
