Amazed, got 9.8 on the black variant, which I can only imagine is extremely difficult. The space Wraparound variant came back a 9.6, one spine tick to blame for that one. Overall happy with my sub

Had forgotten to note the premium variant when subbed, so it wasn't noted on the label. I'm just going to leave it since it's an obvious variant

I was at a LCS yesterday and they informed me that they have their own shop Alien 1 variant. I purchased the book and it’s not on the league of geeks websites list, but it’s on the LCS’s bay store. 
 

It's the "Third Eye Comics" variant.

CGC has labeled this one as Stegman variant for me. I purchased it from Rich Henn for the writer signing.

Some great covers in this thread, it's a shame the series itself has been so poor.

Hoping the new Predator book from Marvel gets a better creative team on it.

The first arc was not great by any means, but the current one is better, if still not at the level of quality I'd like.

I agree that the second arc is better, for sure. Not great, but better. The first arc was terrible, and the art, my god, my eyes. That Salvador Larroca photoshop art, so dull and lifeless, makes Greg Land look like a master illustrator. Yuck. 

To be fair, Dark Horse had gotten pretty lazy there at the end as well. For instance, the adaptations of the Gibson Alien 3, and "Alien the Original Screenplay" were just dull cash-grabs to me. But up to that point, I loved the books so much. Funky, r-rated, adult aimed sci-fi horror, with a host of comics' best illustrators. Some great talents worked on the license over the years. Marvel is just going to throw multiple covers and mediocrity at us until it sticks or goes away. I guess my only hope is for the new tv series, maybe it'll bring something interesting to the Aliens universe. I have also been enjoying most of the Titan novels, particularly the Alex White books. Good Alien stories that FEEL like Alien stories.

The first arc was a combination of boring art, unlikeable characters, and a bland story. Oof. I wonder how sales are doing.
