Three Variant Comics to Watch for at San Diego Comic Con 2012

UPDATE 7/25:
So it looks like the sketch cover (pictured below) was not released.  I'm not sure where the image originated, but a few auctions made it onto Ebay before the convention began.  Oops.

There was another giveaway with a Spidey appearance at the con though.  Marvel gave away a preview version of Amazing Spider-Man #692 that also includes previews of Hawkeye #1, Captain Marvel #1 and Gambit #1.

I first reported there were 2 variants at the 2012 San Diego Comic Con with Spider-Man making an appearance, but there are actually 3 showing up.

These include:

Amazing Spider-Man #688 (regular cover)

Amazing Spider-Man #688 (sketch cover)

Astonishing X-Men #51 (with the blink and you'll miss it Spider-Man glove)

And if you can't make it to the show, you can find them on Ebay.


  1. These are awesome, you going to the convention?

  2. Unfortunately I won't be able to make it, but I'll be reading all about it online and catching the coverage on G4 (

  3. i thought that the sketch came out

  4. i thought that the sketch didnt come out

  5. It does look like the sketch cover is a phantom that didn't come out. It appears the image was preliminary and made its way to Ebay before the convention.
