As you can see, it looks to be a big month for TBA, who we assume is Marvel's newest Young Gun artist, and who is so hot he or she is identified solely by his or her initials. TBA will be turning in a Deadpool 75th Anniversary DC Trolling Variant, a Hasbro Variant, a Stomp Out Bullying Variant, and a Fuck It Buy Three Copies And Kick Yourself Five Years From Now When It's In the Twenty-Five Cents Bin Variant, amongst others, and that's just from this small group of solicits. Estimates for the full solicitations, due out later this week, suggest that TBA could be drawing upwards of 200 variant covers in October.

"His or her work is transcendent," explained Marvel EiC Axel Alonso. "It's like it's not even there." 

"TBA has had a long career in the industry," explained Marvel's Vice President of Neckbeards and Pastrami Sandwiches Tom Brevoort. "He or she has spent the better part of the last decade as the release date of seminal comics like All Star Batman and Robin the Boy Wonder #11 and Image United #3."

"And now we've hired him or her - the gender on the job application is listed as IDK - to create a bunch of variant covers so we can start raking in the cash for stupid gimmicks without even bothering to create them first," he added.

At press time, sales of comics featuring variant covers by TBA had topped six million copies at the distributor level after Marvel convinced a gullible tech startup company to buy them out and give them away them for free as part of a subscription geek stuff in a box service for privileged white people with money to burn. Marvel could not be reached for a response on the sales numbers as they were busy penning a self-aggrandizing press release about it. Stay tuned to The Outhouse, as updates to this story will be provided at a date TBD.
