#47: Variant Covers with Paul Eaton

Paul Eaton of Galactic Comics and Collectibles returns for another episode of Capes and Tights. Paul and Justin Soderberg discuss variant covers this time around.

In comic books, a variant cover refers to an issue of a comic book with a different cover than the main, “official” cover for the book. Some variants are simple as a second or third cover readily available to everyone. Other variants are 1:10, 1:25, etc., or even one-per-store. Meaning, the store purchasing comics from the distributor would have to purchase 25 copies of a book (1:25) to receive a single issue of that variant.

Paul and Justin discuss the benefits of variant covers for both the local comic shop, publishers and collectors.
