PiercingMetal Thoughts: While I’ve pointed out before that I don’t generally collect all the assorted variant editions, I am most assuredly going to be picking up this special issue because its just loaded with talented creatives. Which of the three covers in the variants is your favorite of them all? I think they all rock but maybe the current “WandaVision” show is making me lean towards the Scarlet Witch version by Peach Momoko. Anyway, that’s all I have about this one so chime in down below with your own thoughts and I shall see you next time around. Thanks for reading and keep safe.
