    If the issue number is also the number of the beast, what can we expect from the story? Will Mephisto make another appearance? Will Peter sell his soul for a Klondike Bar?

    • The number of the beast is originally 616 (thus Marvel reality 616) and the new testament changed it to 666.

  2. I know this is a ad for the store, and the whole “save your LCS” is a interesting spin, but it’s still a variant cover. Variant covers and speculation nearly killed comics 20 years ago with gimmicks to make comics “valuable”. Maybe I am cynical. But a variant cover is a variant cover. Which is pretty much a waste of my time, and money.

    • Variants didn’t almost do in comics 20 years ago, it was the sudden push by non-fans buying everything they could comics in hopes of making it rich on those items down the road…publishers started to come out with more and more monthly titles, but then when the non-fans stopped buying them, the bottom almost fell out…

    Sure it’s a gimmick, but as far as gimmicks go, I think this is a pretty damn cool one… I’ll try and grab a couple when they come out so that I can read one and frame the other. I like decorating my walls with random cool stuff. :)
