Top 5 Opeña Variants with the Lowest Print Run
Jerome Opeña is getting everybody's attention with his work on Seven to Eternity and while we all hope he stays on the series forever, it's always fun to see artists doing Big Two characters. After working his way up on Dark Horse and Image, Opeña spent a few years working for Marvel (with brilliant runs on The Punisher, Moon Knight, then jumping to the next level with Uncanny X-Force, Avengers, Infinity and the Ultron OGN).
So I thought it was time to look at his variants with the lowest print runs, because we know how people turn to this as trophies …
Thanks to Adam F for a lot of the groundwork in this article and welcome to the team, Adam!!! Expect great things from him really soon!!!
All-New Invaders #3B 1:50
Punisher (2014) #2B 1:50
Magneto #2B 1:50
Daredevil #3B 1:50
Avengers vs X-Men #12C sketch 1:200
Wolverine 2014 #1B 1:50
Est. Print Run: 1,094
Whatever happened to the Clawed Crusader? Wolverine has been one of comic's most popular characters in comics for decades, but somewhere between the Jeph Loeb arcs, Jason Aaron's run, the fill-ins, the Death Of mini-series and the rumored self-sabotage, people just lost interest. Still, 1,094 copies for a Wolverine cover by Jerome Opeña doesn't sound like a lot.
Convergence #5 1:25
Est. Print Run: 4,129
For the moment, the only piece of art Opeña's done for DC and it's a great piece. Convergence was not a really good read (even considering it was an event), but the 1:25 variants were a lot of fun. This one featuring Adam West's Batman and Damian as Robin only talks of the untapped potential of Convergence.
