    I am guessing this cover alone will help to sell out the third issue as well.

    The variant covers help pad the overall sales numbers. Usually they don't drive large numbers of readers going to comic stores, but this case it may be different in that the covers have led large numbers of fans to believe the Axis retcon is coming down. Now that might not happen, but the belief it may has been a real factor helping drive sales.

    From a Magnus family fan prospective if they get rid of the retcon or not the higher sales will translate to more quality cover art which will be used in more merchandise. It will also mean more family stories in the future. All that I want, but I also don't want casual fans thinking the toxic waste dump that has become Lorna and Magneto is the basis of their relationship.

    Agreed this is my main complaint for the series, I am happy the concept for the family sells, itīs just that I hate how badly Leah is doing Lorna and Magneto dynamic.

    My view regarding ToM is that most of its sales power comes from three things.

    • Fans wanting Magnus family content badly due to not getting it for so long
    • Fans wanting to read anything with Scarlet Witch in it, especially if it involves the X-Men/mutants
    • Fans wanting to read anything with Magneto in it

    In other words, I think things like ToM going back for a second printing say more about the impact of artificial scarcity over time and heightened interest in Wanda content after Wandavision than about ToM itself. Just as the current X-Men comics got a huge sales boost out of Marvel heavily promoting it as a new era after nearly a decade of the franchise being in the doghouse due to Fox owning the film rights.

    I just love Dadneto and his kids
    Fox Peter and Dadneto is so good.
    It’s really frustrating how poorly comics present Dadneto and pietro.
