Every comic book these days has limited print run variant covers and 8 Percent is no exception. Not only can you get the regular retailer cover by the team of Richard Clark and Ross Hughes, but you can also get a 1:60 variant black and white cover by Richard Clark and Allen Cordrey. But wait, there is more. We have a lovely 1:18 Bomber Nose Art variant cover by Chris Ehnot and David Delanty. To round out the variant covers we have a Matthew Waite (yeah the guy who did the stupid expensive Deadpool #27 cover) 8-Bit variant cover. The 8-Bit cover is 1:30 issues.
There is also a super rare (limited to 35) Creator's Comp cover by Chris Ehnot. It's so rare, I probably shouldn't mention it.
