Add One More Astonishing X-Men #51 Variant To the List

As a follow-up to a recent article, I just came across another new variant for Astonishing X-Men #51 when I was working on completing my Spider-Men #1 retailer variant collection.

Heroes Aren't Hard to Find in Charlotte, North Carolina puts on the wildly successful Heroes Convention -- also in Charlotte.  At this year's event back in June, they offered an exclusive "variant" of Astonishing X-Men #51.

The issue includes an image created by Phil Noto of Heroes owner Shelton Drum and his wife Linda.

I say "variant" because the comics weren't printed with the image, but rather the picture was professionally printed on label stock and placed on the blank area of the cover.  Not a true printed variant, but one professionally manufactured.

You can read more or get a copy on their site, and grab one of their many comic shop exclusive cover issues while you're there too.
