Comic Book: Issue #1 Released! Collect them all!

MLPFiM Comic Book Issue #1 came out today, with several different variations on the cover.

Can you collect them all?

I won't. :P

I'm just gonna get the first one that I see and then review it. Not gonna get it until Saturday though, due to a little slice of epicness. Hopefully my review of it will be up at the same time as Dusty's review of "Magic Duel."

If you're missing some of the covers, check out all of them after the break so that you can see which ones you still need.

Note that the first six pictured below are sold in a box set (in addition to being sold separately), so you can save money if you want to get them all.

Although, it will still be difficult to get all of the covers. Some versions are only sold by certain retailers, certain online sellers, and in one instance, even a certain city! Probably the best thing for collectors to do is to wait until it has been out for a while, let someone assemble assemble a collection for you, and then wait for them to get bored with it and put it on eBay.

The box set to look for, containing the first six covers, is this one:

Apart from the front cover (and, in two instances, the back cover), there is no difference between the content of the comic itself. Just many different covers.

To see each of the covers individually, check after the break.

  1. So they're the same comic, just with a different cover..... is it just me or is this a bit ridiculous? I mean it's like they're trying to say, "hey collectors, I dare you to try and get them all" (then laughs maniacally).

    1. Look at the labels on the post and you'll see how "ridiculous" I think it is.

    2. Yup, it's a money grab if I've ever seen one.

  2. Also there seems to be an issue with the first two pics.

    1. Okay, apparently Bleeding Cool doesn't like to share or something, I couldn't find an exact replacement for the top image but I found one that was close.
