      I like the Skottie Young variant

      I quite like all three really. Though there's something not quite right about Nightcrawler's face in the Manara one.

      It's a shame Nowlan didn't include Northstar as a throwback to his AF covers, but you can see why he'd focus on those characters.

      Ouch.
      I think I should be getting my Nowlan & Manara Variants for a lot less than that, but the sketch one is going to cost me about the same.

      No Northstar on the Deadpool Variant either:

      The Skottie Young ones are always fun.
      I'll just end up with whichever one they put aside for me, though.

      Okay, so my LCS has just e-mailed me:

      Reg, Blank, Young & Deadpool - $4
      Nowlan - $10
      Manara - $22
      McGuinness Sketch - $120. I think I'll be ordering that one from ebay instead!

      Managed to get the Sketch cover for $23 through ebay Even with the $14 shipping from the US it worked out cheaper than I can get it here.

      So, for that reason I've got no physical copies until Monday so if anyone fancies reviewing #1 then feel free to start an article!

      Looking online, Laughing Ogre Comics in Virginia have an exclusive cover:

      I wonder if any other stores have exclusives as the Marvel website doesn't show any.
