      I think I was blocking the memory of that cover...

      (That's my excuse, and I'm sticking with it. No, uh, I never saw that thread... My posts there are, um, an illusion. The Silence made them. There is no post. It's swamp gas reflecting off Venus.)

      My memory is probably going, but have we seen a pic of the #3 variant cover?

      Cheers. That's one of the three I could recall, for some reason #4 had slipped my memory. I'm having probs getting hold of the variant cover for #1. Pauls place won't be ordering, but he did say he'll try and get them all for me at some point. Otherwise it's an online job

      I really appreciate the detail on this cover. The webbing on Marrina's hand is well done.




      Is Dreamqueen going to play a role in Fear Itself? Could she be the one behind the Unity-fication? Illusions are her specialty, and from Issue #2 it seems like illusions play a role in the process...
