Amazing Spider-Man #690 1:25 Shane Davis Variant – April 2012
Welcome back everyone! It's another Friday, and time for another episode of Covers from the Unknown! This week I look at a cover from Shane Davis! IMHO, Davis is a very underrated artist. Some of his work on Superman and Shazam was amazing. The Lizard variant everyone talks about is obviously #688, by J Scott Campbell, but two issues later, in #690, Shane Davis actually created a better Lizard variant cover! It's not just him standing there…it is an action shot!
There were approximately 50k printed of #690, so with this being a 1:25, there are about 2k of these out there. It is a decent amount, but not enough for all the true Spider-Man fans out there. If the Lizard ever becomes a main villain again, it may see some heat, and right now, these are very cheap, with a number of them being between $10 and $20. So, if you are a Lizard fan, and want a cheaper (much much cheaper) option to #688, go out and grab one of these!
Good luck and Happy Hunting!
