If you are wondering if the trend to release multiple variant covers has crested and sliding back to normalcy, will be happy to know Marvel plans to release eight – EIGHT – variant covers to Original Sin.  On the plus side, it is only one variant cover to each of the eight issues…

On the moon, the dead body of Uatu, The Watcher has been discovered. His home ransacked. Looted of its valuable alien technology. But something far more dangerous was taken. The Watchers eyeball – which has borne witness to every event and every secret in the history of the Marvel Universe now rests in the hands of his killer. Secrets that are about to get out.

Who holds the eye? It could be anyone – even one of the Marvel Universe’s greatest heroes. Each cover, gorgeously rendered by some of the top talent in the industry features a different Marvel hero in possession of the Watcher’s dangerous and mysterious eye. But which hero (or villain) is behind his murder?

Everyone is a suspect – and no one is safe!

    In no world does a comic need 8 covers. Ever. Seriously, this excess is ridiculous. I know there’s a market for it, but why? I guess this is the same sort of thing as collecting the Star Trek plates, but more expensive and frustrating.

      I’m with you, and if they are going to do this many cover, could it at least be interesting? Not just the same basic shot, with different characters.
