Variant Cover Policy

It is common practice in the comic market to mark up variant covers in price due to their limited availability.  Dragon’s Lair Comics & Fantasy® is unique because we do not follow this practice, and choose to sell them at cover price.  Subscribers are allowed to request variants for the series that they are subscribed to, but will only receive one of each available cover in order to keep special or sought after variant covers from going to a single individual. Orders and requests for variant covers are never guaranteed, and a subscription for variants only will not be accepted.

Subscribers are randomized when comics are pulled every week in order to make the distribution of variant covers as fair as possible.

Subscribers to a book will take precedence over special orders for variant covers, meaning that a special order will only be filled if no subscribers have requested the variant, or the subscribers also received the variant.  Special orders are limited to one of each variant, but can be placed for multiple variants for a book if there will be more than one released.  These are filled by the earliest date placed to the latest date placed.

Once the books hit the new wall on Wednesday morning, the cap on variant ordering goes away, meaning that if a customer comes in on Wednesday morning in person when they release, the customer can purchase multiple copies of available variants that made it to the New Wall.  Customers are not allowed to call to put multiple copies of variants on hold.  The only way to gain access to multiple copies of the same variant cover, whether you are a subscriber or regular customer, is to come in when we open early on Wednesday morning at 9AM.

These policies are in place in order to make access to variants fair, and to prevent customers from ordering multiple copies to sell or take advantage of the lack of mark-up. Distributing them among our clientele as equally as possible ensures that the most subscribers possible receive variants if they have specified they would like them.  The best way to get access to variant covers is to start a subscription, and specify which kind of variants for the series that the customer would prefer if the customer has an artist preference such as Scottie Young, who is well known for the variant covers he creates.
