I love this idea, and hope Image continues with this perhaps as an annual tradition. I also would love to see other comic publishers to push similar blind boxes of the sort. Blind boxes are fun and addicting. But, I would like to see them exclusive to comic book stores and share the excitement with customers. I will be curious about what the variant covers look like, and to what series and artists are involved. The only drawback is the cost, for which I am hesitant in spending that much on variants. I still may get one of these, and share/review it here on strangerworlds.com.
