ONLY the variant cover has Barrack on it. It's the b version. That's hopefully what you ordered. There will be two covers, and the standard a cover will be readily available in shops, Spidey rarely sells out unless there is a hot variant like this. You only want the Variant b Obama cover, so make sure that's what you're ordering.

This is what we all ordered Online Comic Store – Buy Comic Books, Graphic Novels – Superman Batman Spider-Man

This should be the variant right?

NOTE: This extremely limited collectible retailer incentive variant was offered to direct comic book retailers only for a very limited time and not offered in Previews. Additionally, comic book retailers were required to increase their orders for the standard edition of this issue to exceed their orders for a preceding ASM issue in order to be eligible to order this variant. Because of the very limited time frame allowable for retailers to get their orders in, many simply missed the chance to order this variant, while some may have decided the cost of increasing their orders would not be economically viable to become eligible. While high demand was expected for this very limited variant, Marvel's most press release leading to widespread news coverage has further fueled the fire. This variant is expected to sell out prior to release on January 14 and is technically out of print considering the cut off date for orders has since expired
the link that indy gave that takes you to the website, clearly says that it is the variant, so thats false advertisement,( if they sent a regular one),, i think we ll be ok to get the correct version of this issue

they're supposedly keeping the ACTUAL cover 'secret' so what you are seeing might only be a representation

Nice Butthead. I have a Ren & Stimpy Powdered Toast Man Special #1 from about 1991 that isn't worth much, but I loved that cartoon in it's first season

sounds like you paid for the cheapest shipping. if they mail it media mail, by the time you actually get it in hand, the 'rush' might be over.

I would hope not. New York to New Jersey should go quickly. If they mail out on 1/14 I better get them by 1/20.

I also sent an e-mail asking them to pack them all together. They can keep the extra shipping. Maybe I will get lucky and get priority.

you would think... but the thing about media mail is that its the LAST priority.. hopefully it works out for you... but be prepared if it takes AT LEAST 14 days to get to you.

i've have stuff sent to me media mail from within my own state and it took a month to get to me LOL.

I would be more worried about receiving multiples than anything since their site clearly states:

"Limit 1 Per Customer"

They won't ship to the same address/email etc two copies. I just got a call and they will be calling people who ordered more then 1 or emailing them with refund instructions ie; store credits

LOL oh crap. that sucks.

btw- i see a lot of sellers slipping in 2nd print auctions... sucks for people that buy it thinking its the 1st printing...genius for the sellers that are capitalizing on it.

I just got an email from my local comic shop saying the WILL NOT be selling the variant 1st printing cover to the general public next Wednesday, but are "kindly" giving us the option of ordering as many 2nd printings as we want..

Gee, I wonder what they're doing with the 1st printings?

That figures. I called before I did it and asked if I could buy a few and he said I needed to place separate orders. He didn't say different addresses.
