I have a long standing love/hate relationship with the ‘variant cover’ trend in comics now that it is back in full swing. That is that I hate that I secretly love them and they make me a bit of a hypocrite when I want to rally against the speculator market and falsely inflated values of my precious precious comic books. Yes, I agree they can be cash grabs at times, but they can also be cash grabs that are damn pretty to look at when done right. Right?
