hustl. put on sale a 'spotlight' version of the Amazing Spider-Man #1 (2022) Eminem variant cover on TheHaul.com (Note: The Haul is owned by ReedPop, the parent company of Popverse.) This Amazing Spider-Man #1 (2022) Eminem 'spotlight' variant cover is limited to 1,000 copies, and given that the original variant cover sold through its 5000-copy print run in minutes, demand was expected to be exceedingly high.

It was so high, that shortly after going onsale on November 29, orders were suspended as, according to hustl., "it crashed the site." According to the company, "very few orders (human or otherwise) were able to complete checkout" and that they are following up "in order individually to process" the remaing copies available. They are going by a strict one-book-per-person limit. For more details, check with hustl.

The hustl. Amazing Spider-Man #1 (2022) Eminem 'spotlight' variant cover, seen at right, keeps Spider-Man and Eminem in full color, but leaves the background in its uncolored state.

"It's truly an honor to be able to bring Eminem and Spider-Man to fans slinging raps on this official Marvel variant cover," says hustl. COO Keri Harris in a statement. "There is no doubt that fans lucky enough to find themselves holding one of these will possess a highly sought-after collectible."
