That variant is killer.  Is it same price?

In theory, yes.  It's a matter of the ratio.  Sometimes the covers come in 50/50 ratios.  You have your pick of covers.  Other times they come 1 to 4 or 1 to 10, etc.  In those cases, the comic stores usually hold onto them and sell them at slightly higher prices.  Or they just put it up on ebay right away.  I've seen some variants sell for 10-15 dollars the day they're released.  Just supply and demand I suppose.
