Will You Order the ANT-MAN #1 Shrinking Variant?


Marvel let us all in on the one of a kind variant scheme for the new ANT-MAN #1 Shrinking Variant from Nick Spencer (Superior Foes of Spider-Man, Avengers World) and Ramon Rosanas (Night of the Living Deadpool). Every cover will feature Ant-man at a different size. Wait what?

“This is completely unlike any cover we’ve ever attempted,” says Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel. “We’ve even had to utilize new technologies to make it happen. Each variant is completely unique. Each and every cover will feature a different sized Ant-Man. No two are identical!”

That is pretty damn cool. So if you order one you will be sure to have a completely unique, numbered, one of a kind issue. That’s one to bring to a convention, get signed and hang it on the wall. And since it’s available only in comic shops it helps to keep the business moving forward. Will it result in massive orders? Well with all the Ant-man buzz surrounding The Avengers: Age of Ultron it’s got a good chance a being a pretty big book (pardon the pun).

Here’s the info you need to order at your local comic shop:

Here’s more info straight from Marvel:

Scott Lang is ready to turn it all around in this brand new ongoing series. Sure he’s never been the world’s greatest super hero. Most people don’t even think he’s been the best Ant-Man – and the last guy created Ultron and joined the Masters of Evil, so that’s really saying something. But that’s all about to change. New city. New outlook. New Scott.

Be there for Scott Lang’s brand new day and don’t miss your chance to get your hands on this truly unique, one-of-a-kind variant before they’re gone for good! This time, nothing’s going to stop the astonishing Ant-Man! Be there when he returns to comic shops with the can’t miss ANT-MAN #1 Shrinking Variant comes exclusively to comic shops this January.

RETAILERS: Each Ant-Man #1 Shrinking Variant will feature Ant-Man at a different size and will come individually numbered. Marvel will only be producing as many as are ordered. Check Marvel.com and upcoming Diamond Daily stories for more information on this special variant.

    As an Ant-Man fan, I could not be more excited for this title and variant “scheme.” The way people felt in regards to Superior Spider-Man, the geek fever at an all time anticipatory high, is the way I feel towards this. I think it’s got a good line-up and with the film due out July 2015 (featuring both Hank Pym and Scott Lang) the book will do well. Thanks to Chuck and What’cha Reading for breaking this news to me and hopefully for many others that found this here first!
