The Press Release:
Coveted by generations of True Believers, Marvel Comics’ legendary No-Prizes return in the form of eye-catching new variant covers this February! Coined by Stan Lee, the legendary Marvel No-Prize was originally awarded to fans who called out continuity errors in stories and later were given to those who could expertly explain them away! Over the years, the term and format of the prize itself evolved in many ways, but the spirit of it has remained the same! Celebrating this staple of comics fandom, these variant covers will take readers back to the glory days of the No-Prize by utilizing photographs of the actual iconic envelopes that were mailed out to “winners” in decades past!
Check out the three NO-PRIZE COVERS and stay tuned for announcements about exciting Marvel Comics variant cover programs coming your way in the months ahead! For more information, visit Marvel.com.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I’ve pointed out, I am not one of those comic book fans that collect the assorted variant covers these days. I’ve slowed down the monthly intake of titles and prefer to use any of the disposable income I have for them on additional titles rather that one with a different cover. It’s surely something I remember from Marvel but I never received a “No-Prize” back in the day. What about you? Are you of the age when these were done? I’d love to hear about it and with that I say ciao for now. See you next time. Please keep safe out there.
