Do you guys like them? Do you ONLY buy them if available or do you just pick and choose or just buy the regular cover? What are your thoughts?
It all boils down to which cover is better for me. It's annoying if there's more than one cover that's really good. How do you decide which one to get? I'm not getting two of the same comic.
I'm the same as Conrad, assuming there's no price difference, I'll get whichever one I like best, and often I find that means I grab the standard cover.
Same here. I think I've spent extra on a variant once in the last 5 years and that was the Red Tornado - Full Metal Jacket homage cover for DCeased. I have picked up Syd Mead variants on the Titan Blade Runner titles.
For the longest time I resisted variant covers, because I didn't want that to become what the comics market was all about (amazing covers with nothing worth reading inside them), but of late my bluff has been called. I have a number of friends in the industry more than I am who I try to support by picking them up, and hell...my girl Mary Marvel is on every other cover these days, so I'm picking up a lot more of them than I used to.
My absolute breakdown was this year when I bought my first 'virgin art' cover (no logos or publishing info, just the art).
