X-Files #-2, different color

Recommended Posts

I have a #-2 (Minus Two) and the indicia indicates that it is a first printing, but the cover is black with slightly lighter black lettering instead of the red that the official cover scan shows.  Any thoughts?

There appears to be two covers for The X-Files (Topps) #-2

Lone Star comics ( https://www.mycomicshop.com/search?TID=163961 ) list them as 'Pink' and Gray logos.

The Comic Book Realm ( https://comicbookrealm.com/series/10706/122503/the-x-files-issue-2/1 ) lists them as  American Entertainment Special 'Red' logo and American Entertainment Variant Gray logo.

The Grand Comics Database ( https://www.comics.org/issue/899211/ ) have them as 'Black' Logo and 'Red' logo.

I think there are only 2.
The Pink/Red are probably the same just different scans affected the Hue.
The Gray/Black are probably the same with the Black being a bad scan that didn't pick up the dark Gray logo.

The Red appears to be the main issue and the Gray appears to be the variant.
