Ok I have been meaning to ask this but always forgot until now. The only difference I see between the two comics is the blank UPC on one, but I always thought that was a newsstand edition? Am I wrong?

Why is this issue a variant? Spectacular spiderman 24B


Here is the regular edition:



I own a Spectacular Spiderman #27 that is the exact same with the blank UPC, so is it a variant as well? Also #11 came with a blank UPC block as well.




Thanks to the following sellers for helping me put together my complete run of Amazing Spider-man #1-700

ComicCastle
TreeHouse
Hall Of Heroes
Thundercron's Longbox
DrumCzar


Now for the sellers helping me finish my TMNT collection:

If you look in the Story Arc field of 24B, you will see that it is tagged as a Marvel Whitman Pack Edition issue. This means it was sold in a sealed package of, I think, 3 issues. The difference is the blank UPC box, the different price box and the name next to the CCA seal. That is what I noticed. I am not an expert on those issues.

(cover scans omitted)

I own a Spectacular Spiderman #27 that is the exact same with the blank UPC, so is it a variant as well? Also #11 came with a blank UPC block as well.

The copy with the barcode is the newsstand comic. The one without the barcode was probably bagged with a couple of other comics, and probably sold in a non-newsstand, non-direct outlet (like a department store chain, or five-and-dime chain). It would probably have been distributed by Whitman or another distributor who tried bagged comics only briefly in the 1970s.

Your Spectacular Spider-Man #27 and #11 are probably similar in history and source.
