Mad Magazine Launches Its First Blank Cover. And Adds A Blank Variant As Well.

STK696649Blank cover comics have become all the rage of late as a perfect way to get comic book artists to provide sketches and create their own cover for prized comic book issues. And, with a little Frank Cho outrage, can sell for hundreds or thousands….

Now Mad Magazine wants to play. Published by DC Comics, it is using the blank sketch cover appeal from that market to create one for its own, for issue 538.

Except it is also offering a blank variant cover. That appears to be exactly the same. Anyone knows how you'll tell the difference?

Though after a couple of conventions, the real question will be, are there more blank covers still blank than those sketched on by Sergio Aragones?
