Those, "On Sale Wednesday Variants," Were Really Ugly
For those who don't know what I'm talking about, here is the strange tale: DC of course now has different distributors and allows their comics to be sold on Tuesday. Marvel is still with Diamond, which has comics go on sale Wednesday. To commemorate this random fact, Marvel announced special, "On Sale Wednesday," variants to...I dunno, be petty? In an initial preview they featured one big blob of color and text declaring, "On Sale Wednesday." People assumed these ugly images were placeholder art for the actual special variants. They were wrong.
