Official LEGO Marvel Variant Comic Book Covers

With only a few weeks left until the release of the highly anticipated LEGO Marvel Super Heroes video game, Marvel has released images of the majority of the LEGO Marvel variant comic book covers that have already been released as well as for ones that will coming out in the near future. Marvel artist Leonel Castellani illustrated the covers which pay homage to classic Marvel covers and are used to promote the upcoming LEGO Marvel game. The regular LEGO variant covers will have a 1:25 distribution while the sketch variants will have a 1:100 distribution ratio and thus carry a higher premium. Check around your local comic book stores to see if they carry any of these variations. If your stores don’t carry them, many online comic book stores such as Midtown Comics should have them in stock as they hit store shelves. Note that the official covers for Hawkeye #15 and Indestructible Hulk #14 are still not available at this time. We’ll update this post when we get those images.

More Official LEGO Marvel Comic Book Variant Covers

Wolverine & The X-Men #36 Variant Cover

Marvel has released a few more images of the official LEGO variant covers for various Marvel comics illustrated by Leonel Castellani. Like with all the other LEGO variant covers, the normal ones have a 1:25 distribution while the sketch cover issues will have a 1:100 distribution. Contact your local comic book stores to see if they have them in stock and you can probably get a good deal on them. If not, many online stores such as Midtown Comics will be having them for sale online when they’re available. These special covers have a red banner along the bottom promoting the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Video Game. Featured below are variant covers for Wolverine & The X-Men #36, All-New X-Men #17, Nova #8, and Uncanny Avengers #12.

Marvel LEGO Comic Book Sketch Variant Covers

Marvel Universe: Avengers Assemble #1 Sketch Variant

For the past few months, we’ve been doing posts about some Marvel comic books that will be releasing in September to help promote the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes video game. These comic books will have variant covers that will feature characters as their LEGO counterparts. If you know anything about comic books, you’ll know that variant covers are priced higher than their standard cover versions. These variant versions will be going 1 in every 25 which means that for every regular issue the retailer orders, one copy will be of the variant variety. BleedingCool is reporting there will also be sketch variant covers for the Marvel comics as well. These covers are even rarer and will be around the 1 in every 100 copies or more. For example, the X-Men #5 sketch variant is going for at least $80 so it’ll get a bit costly if you’re trying to collect every single comic. If you’re a hardcore collector, check with your local comic book stores to see if they will be carrying any of these variant covers next month. I’ve called a few of the shops here in San Diego and they’re not sure if there will be enough demand for the regular copies of the comics to warrant any variant copies but we’ll see.
