It’s the 90s all over again kiddies, with variant covers coming fast and furious for titles and reprints. The latest variant comes from Dynamic Forces and Marvel for next week’s Secret Invasion #1 by Mel Rubi.

Comic fans old and new know Mel Rubi’s art from the immense variety of titles and characters that he has drawn for the past two decades. Mel’s countless credits include hit Marvel titles such as Uncanny X-Men, Excalibur and Wolverine, as well as Image titles Grifter, Stormwatch and Deathblow, and for Dark Horse, Star Wars: The Bounty Hunters – Scoundrel’s Wages. Most recently, Mel completed the smash hit crossover series, Spider-Man / Red Sonja.

Looks like there are other variants on the way from Dynamic Forces, and we’ll keep you posted on that… no really, we will.

    So, when other characters stop being ‘disguised’ Skrulls, they’ve still got on costumes. But, when Spider-Skrull stops being ‘disguised’, he’s naked … ?

    That’s … disturbing.

    Trying to care….. Trying so hard but i think ill pick up whatever issue is at hand and get that one. Dont care about Variants. I wasnt around buying comics in the 90s and even i have a bad feeling when Variant upon Variant is released!

    Variants get tired after awhile, but it is something that I’ve just accepted. At least they’re backing off the Turner variants … that got really beat after Civil War.
