Since I'm not doing group buys for the retailer incentive covers (Johnson, Simonson, or Eastman), I thought I'd give everybody a heads up that Frankie's Comics listed them at fairly reasonable prices. I *am* still doing a Frankie's exclusive group buy.

Yeah, knowing there’s this many variants means hopefully the incentives won’t be that hard to get... if you do a variant, you’re looking at 1000 copies minimum, and thus valid to order 20 copies of Kevin’s cover for example.

Most of the variant runs that we have numbers on are only 500-600: AOD Collectables, Collector's Paradise (600 + 200 virgin), Dogu, Frankie's, Legends, New England Comics, Slab City, and Vault. Though even at those numbers they're looking at 10+ copies of Kevin's cover.

The only ones confirmed at 1000 are Brave New World and Jak's. I wonder if IDW was a bit more lenient on order size on this one to entice more variants?

Possibly. I know from collecting variants on IDW TMNT, very few places (notable Jetpack) have been allowed less than 1000. When a mate of mine did his own for issue #73, he had to get 1000 minimum.

Okay, more of an issue #3 question, but does this mean there are 818 dots on Usagi's clothing?

I wasn't going to buy any variants, but that colored Vess is nice! You can get them directly from Heroes Aren't Hard to Find.

I think the only covers we haven't seen are: Signing Tour/SDCC, the blank cover (surprise, it's pretty blank :wink:), the black and white Simonson cover (surprise, it looks like the other Simonson cover, just without color :lol:), and I think I saw one more store exclusive cover, but I can't recall for certain.

Okay, it's looking like the b/w Simonson exclusive might actually instead be a color, virgin variant as an SDCC exclusive.

edit: And Maichan showed me a publication that lists the virgin, color Simonson cover will be an IDW SDCC exclusive and will be sold as a two pack with Ragnarok: Breaking of Helheim. I don't know pricing yet.

Yeah, I couldn't find anything on the Incredible Con site or Facebook page about the cover, but I found another article that listed the same cover and the same convention exclusive, so that's two sources saying the same thing.

Man, IDW's printers are not off to a good start. I've now heard from three places reporting damage to the covers:

  • Legends said 400+ of their 500 copies were damaged
  • Jak's said most of, possibly all of their had minor damage
  • Vault is reporting that all their copies have minor damage

Back at WonderCon, Mayhem had me pick up a convention exclusive TMNT and every single copy on the shelves had abrasion damage. I would have hoped those kinds of issues would have been fixed by now, but the photos from Vault (you can see them in my group order thread) look to be similar. For an industry that thrives off collectors, consistently having damage is not a good look.

Legends said they had enough undamaged copies to fill all the pre-orders and Jak's said they'd pick out the best looking ones for my group order, so we should be good with those. Vault is giving me a couple days to make sure nobody wants to drop out of the group order (let me know if you don't want it anymore), as they think all of them are damaged.

I wonder how many other places are getting damaged covers?

From what I've heard there were a good amount of damaged Vess covers too.
