What would George Costanza have to say about this shrinkage?
Marvel Comics is throwing a new wrinkle into the variant covers wars, introducing what they claim is the first ever “shrinking” variant. The Direct Market-only cover by Ed McGuinness will of course be for January’s Ant-Man #1, the first issue of the new ongoing series starring Scott Lang by Nick Spencer and Ramon Rosanas.
Each “shrinking” cover will be individually numbered (i.e. the print run will be limited to retailer orders) and each cover will feature an Ant-Man in a different size – no two covers will be exactly alike claims the publisher.
“This is completely unlike any cover we’ve ever attempted,” says Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel, in a press release. “We’ve even had to utilize new technologies to make it happen. Each variant is completely unique. Each and every cover will feature a different sized Ant-Man. No two are identical!”
