PiercingMetal Thoughts: As expected these look wonderful and are only another piece of the awesome comic book puzzle that will be assembled by the 2020 Inaugural class of Marvel’s Stormbreakers. Of course, I’ve set a standard where I only appreciate all the assorted variants and happily share them with you on the website but I won’t be purchasing any of them for my own collection. I’ve gotten to the stage where the budget is tighter and that means any chance of another copy of something need to be directed to a different issue as opposed to the same one. Of course if I meet some of these artists at a comic convention I might change my tune but that is where I currently stand on it. Closing up I wonder what you readers think about it. Chime in down below and please do be careful out there. Don’t risk yourself during these trying times. Soapbox over. See you next time my friends.
