Heroes for Hire #5 Thor Movie Variant – April 2011
Welcome back to Covers from the Unknown!
This week we will look at one of the better Thor Movie variants! This is Heroes for Hire #5, from April 2011. Awesome cover by Greg Horn! Where on earth can you see Thor go toe-to-toe with Jaws?? In my opinion this was one of the better movie variants, that actually stayed true to the “movie” theme. While the regular comic had a print run of 21,800, the variant, which was a 1:15 only had a print of around 1,400. In today’s day and age, that is not a lot at all.
If you want to add this comic to your collection, it will not break your bank. I have only seen them run to a high of $20. BUT, I will say, there does not seem to be a lot of them for sale. Not sure this will ever catch on, and become a “hot” variant, but it is a very cool one. If you are a Thor fan, or even a fan of the classic movies, then you have to add this one to your PC.
Happy Hunting fellas!
