I really hope people don't come here to complain. Yes, we all know this a marketing thing. Yes, we know it is silly. Yes, there are people who will buy these and no I am not one of them. That's should cover everything.

@brinkthemoviemyfavoritemovie: Seriously, how does this affect you or most of the people who complain about these things. You guys know this isn't really being marketed to you, right? It's for those who casually keep up with comics or those who love weird variants.

I'm just confused because I thought June was the month of the variGWENts. That was a terrible stretch and I'm sorry. Is it not weird to have two sets of promotional variants in one month though?

@brinkthemoviemyfavoritemovie: Haha I don't care which company it is dude. People who feel they need to post complaints about something that doesn't effect them at all make no sense to me. If you had actually stated something worthwhile in your post I wouldn't have had a problem. Im not saying you can't express your opinion, I'm just questioning your logic.

P.S. The three responses were do to my phone being glitchy. I also don't see why you think I believe this isn't silly. I stated that it was a silly marketing campaign in an earlier post.

"Johnson! DC is gonna go all out on June with their Joker Variant Covers! Tell me we've got our best artists collaborating on something even more interesting and marketable!"

"Well............. uh there's a few drawings here from the portfolios they left behind"

"What can we do with it?"

"Well sir, I just learned how to use the resize tool in MS Paint, maybe we can take a drawing, shrink it, slap it on some Blanks and market is as Ant-Man variants?"

"GENIUS!"

I don't mind that they're doing variants for Ant-man but I wish they had been more creative with it.

Kudos to Marvel for figuring out how to sell comics without using ink on the covers...

I wonder if they really think this is a good idea that will surely draw positive attention? If those people are making money on such ideas i'd like to work at Marvel marketing division.

The could have shown the characters shrunk into different environments and that would have at least been creative. This is just garbage.

They basically could've shown anything else along with them shrinking and I would've been fully on board with this. Garbage at worst, Lazy at best.

Though, obviously not as cost efficient, a cover packed with tiny characters and scenes would have been way better. Sort of like a 'Where's Wally/Waldo' page.

I was thinking more like a "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" scene. For instance, you could have Captain Marvel flying around some kid's science faire model of the solar system. Or Wolverine fighting tiny hand ninjas on an electric car track set up around a Christmas tree. There were so many things they could have do with this but instead went super lazy.

Yeah, I know, I'm just stating alternatives to the obvious (Well to anyone besides Marvel :P).
