I'd call it the gimmickiest cover, but that's just me:

That was the point, I think...

Still needs trading card and polybag. Maybe a bullet hole.

Also not glow in the dark. Maybe they can hit two birds with one stone and include that via the stickers?

They tried to do glow-in-the-dark, apparently, but couldn't get it to work. (They also tried with an arc of Ninjak a while back.) But yes, gatefold, polybag, and trading card. And a coupon for something.

I like it.  Valiant Comics are great to read, we keep hearing about Marvel and DC readers who have switched to Valiant because they had no idea the books were so good... but it isn't enough.  People spend more time and money on variants than they do on opening books and reading them, even better, ENJOYING what they're reading... so Valiant is basically saying, "fine, if you're obsessed with variants, then let's take it to the extreme and just do the most variant variant that can be varianted."  

Then, once that's done... let's try actually reading and ENJOYING our comic books again. lol

But they have been doing multiple incentive variants for individual issues since they rebooted?

Of course!  You don't exist in this industry without variants... unless you have a hit HBO show... and even then... variants.

Image is a publisher for all kinds of separate creator-owned properties.  If we need to list the Image titles that died, we'll be here a while.

Let's just list the ones that have survived next to the new Valiant titles that haven't rebooted yet.

What are the print runs of the top Valiant books vs. the top Image books? Not too long ago I recall all of the valiant titles being sub-10,000 in monthly sales. That is not enough to keep a company going long term.

Awesome.  Simply awesome.

 

The cost to make this book must have been in the billions:applause:.  Hope this doesn't bankrupt them.
