Marvel Finally Publishes a Comic That's Nothing But Variant Covers

Well, they've finally done it. Marvel has finally come to the inevitable conclusion that if you give a comic enough variant covers, it doesn't really matter what's inside. And so, in April, Marvel will publish a comic that consists of nothing but variant covers. Over a hundred of them, in fact. It's a glorious moment in comic book publishing history. The start of a bold new era. What a time to be alive!

As revealed in Marvel's full April solicitations, Star Wars: The Action Figure Variant Covers #1 will collect all of John Tyler Christopher's Star Wars action figure variants in a single one-shot for the low price of $9.99 cheap!

And yes, because we know you were wondering: this collection of variant covers will itself also feature a variant cover. Which means, of course, they'll need to release another collection to collect that one as well. God bless America!

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
