Default Amazing Spider-Man 194 help!

Can anyone shed any insight into the panel art changes this book has? One has the 40 cents in a diamond. The other version has the price in a square.

Anyone know why the two different versions? Is one rarer?

the one with the price in a square is the "newsstand" version and the one with the price in a diamond is the direct version. you'll also notice on the direct version that there's a black line printed diagonally through the barcode on the bottom left corner. In terms of whether one is more rare/desirable than the other I couldn't say. A quick check of ebay though shows me that the listing titles don't typically specify it as being one version or the other which leads me to believe there's no significant distinction...
