    Just a heads up Rich. Someone on the IDW forums posted a new second cover for this book. Maybe you can check to see if it’s legit.

      Dan, I think that cover posted on the IDW Forum is one from the 2011 edition…earlier this week I found another cover for 2012 (different than the one I’ve shown here) but I can’t find any info on whether it’s valid so I haven’t posted it yet. Will update if I find something.

    Just saw that they cancelled the B cover. No variants for this one.

    is this gonna be available through comic shops, or only through hero initiative??

      It will be available in shops just like other comics. It’s listed right along with the other IDW titles in PREVIEWS.
