*Editors Note: It’s important to remember the age old adage “Buy what you love, love what you buy”.  This applies to the comic market as a whole.  Some folks love all things store variants some folks have decided they simply can not stand store variants with out actually seeing them.  Do yourself a favor, keep an eye open to the art and covers, if you like it, check out the price, you might be surprised at how affordable some of these comic exclusives are!!  In the end, remember you are buying this because you like it, not because you think it will increase in value(though some certainly do).
