NYCC: The Hard To Get Variants For Wytches, Enormous And Spread

Anthony Hammock writes for Bleeding Cool: 

Exclusives convention covers are often a great bonus for fans of a beloved comic series. However, with the total cost of getting into conventions, travel, parking, they have also become a way for con goers to help recoup the money that they kicked out to go. Most convention exclusives went fast on Thursday, the first day of the con.

Another extremely popular variant, Enormous #1, which was limited to 250 copies, also sold out quickly. Unlike other stands, 215Ink, the publisher of Enormous, were selling all of their variants for 2 for $5. 215Ink was also selling every issue of Enormous for the price of 2 for $5. They had on hand copies of issue #4 which has been delayed several times from Diamond Comics Distributors.

I would not expect them to last as they feature special cover art by Tradd Moore of Luther Strode and Ghost Rider fame.
