I've seen these before, so I figured I would see if it should be listed as a variant.

Here's some info:

I did find an old CCL thread where this is mentioned and deemed not a variant. Not sure if I agree with that, as printing defects/errors that are mass produced are included in the database.

Thoughts?

I can vouch for the existence of this version. I see them all the time.

And I can state my support for adding it as a variant. An X-Force collector might want both versions (or all three versions, including newsstand), so I think it ought to be added.

Based on the current guidelines these still aren't variants. Printing errors are not typically included in the database. Only if they have a significantly different market value.

On the personal side, I know I have at least one book wit this. Never thought anything of it.

There are an equal number of both versions. When comics are printed they are run on two printers at the same time. That's why sometimes if you look at a stack of comics at your LCS you might note that one book has a blue color (for example) and the next it's more purple and then back again. It's also why two covers of equal distribution come collated. This was just a matter of one printer being set properly and the other had the negative. There should be no extra value given to one over the other as a result.



The following stores are all stores that I've dealt with or have become friends with through the forums and I highly recommend them all.

Thanks for the explanation. I've never thought these were incredibly rare, and have never see them fetch a premium, but always wondered what the deal was with them.
