PiercingMetal Thoughts: “When Captain America throws his mighty shield!!!”, OK enough of that since I know that I have used that time honored reference a number of times here on similar narratives. Now how cool are these eight variant covers? Thanks to Marvel Comics press team for including ALL of them this time around in the mailer because as I’ve pointed out, it makes it easier to hunt the missing ones down with a visual. I love all of these and think that my very favorites fall to “Spider-Woman”, “Moon Knight” and “Fantastic Four”. I mean they all look pretty awesome but those few popped IMHO. So as I close this narrative up I wonder what you readers think about this announcement and which ones you are considering adding to your pull list. Chime in down below and as we head into the holiday weekend here in the USA, I say see you next time and please stay safe.
