So I keep coming across these in my longboxes of comics to sell. It's X-Force Annual #2, but with a sticker on the polybag over the UPC area that says "SUBWAY Sample, Not For Resale". Here's a link to some ebay listings:


Wasn't sure if this qualified as a variant in the database. The comic itself is the same, and they don't appear to be garnering a premium on the secondary market. It's just a sticker on the bag.

My personal thought is no, since there's absolutely no difference when removed from the bag. Others may feel differently though.

To me, a sticker placed on a bagged comic does not make it a variant.
