Iron Man / X-O Manowar #1 Video Game variant is a comic book with a variant cover. Right. I had missed that the reviews are considered variants. Btw, all Review comics miss their images. San Diego Valiant Voice is just a "flyer" on regular copier paper, right? Right. That one seems a little tough t...

Other books that will be added soon... Ouch, I was one book from 100%. But I gotta agree the comics mentioned should be added. Might wonder about Iron Man / X-O Manowar #1 Video Game variant, is that more official than the San Diego Valiant Voice? Actually, how about the Wizard special. Wasn't that...

Why would the postal service handle it differently than they usually do just because you go Media Mail? :evil: :roll:

The writer had big plans. Also I believe the indice (sp?) of the comic does not say it's a one-shot. That was probably decided late (instead of making it an on-going series).
