The covers shown here are books from the "Larsenverse" that have variant covers. The miniseries and the ongoing series of Savage Dragon also had newsstand versions up till issue #28 plus issue #30 which were printed on newsprint and show the UPC on the cover. Those newsstand books didn´t have any of the posters included. Only issues 10 and 30 of the newsstand editions should be considered real variants as they have exclusive variant covers. I´ve included the newsstand version of issue #1 as an example of what the newsstand books usually looked like ...


Issue #1/2 - Variant "Special Wizard Edition" cover
Version A could be ordered with a coupon from Wizard #69 (?) and came with a COA. Version B came without COA and was available to those who subscribed to Wizard

Savage Dragon Vol.1 #1 - Variant covers with different cover fonts (different posters inside)
The newsstand version didn´t have a poster

Glad to see this post back. I love how Erik doesn't go overboard with variants, so when they are done they are usually pretty darn cool. I also love knowing that I own them all 8-) .

Also, to get technical, the "old school" 149 cover is more of a second printing cover than a variant.

Are these still hard to come by or have the prices dropped back down?
