There is NO variant for Amazing Spiderman 697 but there is a a 1:25 variant for Amazing Spiderman 698.

That is 2.5 months of no variants that is a world record I think. So next month will be the moment of truth when we start finding out about how many variants there will be for ASM 700 from Diamond anyway probably will not list any exclusives from other places (ie DF & any other potential exclusive variant).

Thanks for sharing that Silent. Will definitely keep an eye out for that.

Always a pleasure! Have to keep on top of things so we don't fall further behind.

As much as I love variants (not the prices), it's nice to get a "longer" break til the next one. As far as ASM 700 you're guess is as good as mine for the list. I hope not too bad.

I have so been taking advantage of my time with no variants and been busting out originals and variants I have been needed for some time. Closing the regular run gap and the variant gaps.

I love variants but not the prices so much either but I dont like too many lizard covers in a row kinda too much if you ask me. I actually since I have been filling in my holes I now need to go and move the books I have around a little to give the ones I have some breathing room but that requires moving some from box 1 to box 2 and then from 2 to 3 and on so I can keep them in order.

This article mentions three variants for 700.

Really cool looking covers for the two they show.

Looks good to me. I actually seen that picture on another site a few months ago with 700 a a reference but I did not think it was real.

awesome covers

Cool covers. Hope they're not 1/100 or 1/200. I scrolled down and saw more covers. What's the issue with the half costume/ PP spider sense ?

I believe that's #695 regular cover.

Thankfully they probably estimated their sales to be down for a few books because of Alpha. I have had my new 693 ASM and have had no urge to read it yet. I thought about skipping them lol but I doubt I will do that. I will probably read it at some point.

To my knowledge there has never been an Amazing Spiderman variant 1:200. Many people believe the sketch cover for #648 is a 1:200, but I recently was told that was a 1:100 and the regular color cover from Campbell was a 1:50. I wish I knew a comic book shop owner who could 100% clarify, but I do not think they have done a 1:200.

If you think about it, there are only select stores in the country who could order that many (i.e. Mile High, Midtown, etc.) copies of 1 issue.

the 648 was not a 1:50 it was a 1:100 the sketch was a retailer incentive. They jave had a 1:200 the amazing spiderman dark reign

Silent Assassin,

Ok so the color version was a 1:100. How does the retailer get the incentive? In this case did they need to order 200 or 100 to get the sketch? Also, Dark Reign to me does not count as "Amazing Spider-Man" since it was a separate series.

Dark Reign does not count to me either but I was just stating that as an example thought I am surprised the official title run has not had a 1:200 yet but with with Walking Dead having a 1:500 I not not be surprised at all about some crazy ratios.

The retailer has to go a "meeting" and when they are at the meeting they get a copy of it. ONLY the retailers that attend the meeting get a copy. The copies are from Marvel Direct I THINK if I remember correctly.

The Spider-Ham variant was similar to the ASM 648 retailer incentive.
