Variant Covers:Spider-Island

Published on May 30th, 2011

Are you ready for Spider-Island? More importantly, is your comic shop ready to be on the cover? Now Marvel is hoping to get comic shop owners in on the event by creating variant covers specifically for their retail shop.

Marvel put out this press release.

Marvel is proud to unveil the highly anticipated comic shop variant covers to Amazing Spider-Man #666, the kick-off to Spider-Island! That’s right True Believers, we’re putting YOUR comic shops on the cover to the biggest Spidey event of the decade! In the Amazing Spider-Man #666 Comic Shop Bugle Variant by Ryan Stegman, an actual photograph of your comic shop will be front page news of the Daily Bugle! Then, in the Amazing Spider-Man #666 Comic Shop Battle Variant by Humberto Ramos, Spider-Man leaps into action defending your favorite comic shop from the villainous lizard, complete with store name and logo prominently featured!”

I am not sure  many copies of Amazing Spider-Man #666 retailers have to order to get this personalized variant. Also make sure to tell  your retailers which one you want because both of these commemorative Amazing Spider-Man #666 Comic Shop Variants can’t be ordered together

*Note to retailers: These variants have an early FOC of 6/13. Retailers will find all ordering and uploading information in Marvel Mailer.
