    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??

    • rich

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