The Great Variant Canned Food Drive 2012 is here and our Variant Club has begun!

Hey everyone, it's that time of year that collectors who want variants can get them at cover price and help raise food for the needy this holiday season.  In the past couple of years we've easily raised almost 2 tons of food (not kidding!).

Here's how it works, want a variant at cover price? Bring a canned food item in and you'll be able to buy a variant at cover price. We're doing a tiered system this year for the can/variant exchange.

For Variants $50 and Under bring 1 can.

For Variants $100-51 bring 2 cans.

For Variants $150-101 bring 3 cans.

For Variants $200-151 bring 5 cans.

Anything higher 10 Cans. 

There will be some exceptions (new releases for the week are not included), some super variants will not be included in the exchange program. But there are always deals to be don't be afraid to ask.

Now something new that we are introducing this year is our Variant Club. Starting in December all members of the Variant club will be able to purchase a variant on the day of release for HALF the variant price (with the lowest price ever being the cover price). To join our Variant Club it will be a yearly fee of $50 each year. For the month of December you can join for $25 and 25 cans of food. That will get you in the club for the entire year. 

Members of the Variant club will also be automatically entered in regular giveaways exclusive to the club. Our first giveaway will be the JLA Sketch Covers 1-6. The giveaway for those books will happen at the end of December.

So there you go, get some variants, help the needy starting on Nov. 24th (day after Black Friday) and it goes through the entire month of December. If you have ANY questions please feel free to email me at

Have a great holiday season!
