Does it have an internal Prodigy Cover under the Spider-man cover?

Never mind looking. I've already found a second site this morning saying the Newsstand edition has only the one cover while the direct has both so therefore it was distinct and different which also means scarcer due to the limited # of copys offered to the newsstand market at that point in time.

Looking closer it's also a gatefold cover. I don't remember A being a gatefold cover. I don't have one to check right now.

It'd also being interesting to know if there is any information added to the indica of B about contacting the Marvel Direct dept for subscriptions or any other way to distinguish it from A in case someone just ends up with a copy of B that the external cover was ripped off of but not actually the A with two covers. Maybe something in the Caption letting you know B has two covers.
