DC Comics November 2014 Theme Month Variant Covers Revealed

We all love LEGO so this makes perfect sense.

You know we can never get enough LEGO. With LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham coming out this Fall, DC Comics is celebrating by showcasing LEGO versions of many of the characters featured in the game. For the month of November, DC will release LEGO variants for select covers.

Here's an exclusive first look at the cover to BATGIRL #36.

The LEGO variants, are the latest in a variety of monthly themes. DC Comics kicked off the year with Scribblenauts in January, followed by Steampunk in February, while March saw Robot Chicken covers based on the Adult Swim show, April celebrated Alfred E. Neuman's birthday with MAD themed covers, May brought a selection of variants by artist Mike Allred done in the groovy style of Batman '66, while June went retro with Bombshell covers based on the popular DC Collectibles line. In honor of the caped crusaders anniversary Batman took center stage in July with Batman 75 variant covers, this month celebrates the self photo with Selfie variant covers, while September jumps to the future with Futures End 3-D motion covers, and just in time for Halloween, October sees Monster variants.

What else can you expect?

No Lego Green Arrow?

Haha. Awesome.

DC's Variant covers are really cool. I loved the Steampunk ones.

The female characters look alike they are obese people.

But you don't like comics.....

Gasp! Lego Stargirl! That's crazy!

Wish they would've included Green Arrow. At least in the Justice League United cover. I mean Ollie has been one of the few heroes to have lasted throughout the 50's when all the other heroes vanished, he was one of the earliest member of the Justice League and became one of their most important, he has his own live action show. Giving Green Arrow some respect with variants wouldn't be bad. I don't think Ollie was included in any of the variants except for the MAD ones.

that awful batgirl's background comic,...

Kind of wish they would include JL3000 with some of their variants.

Posted by Outside_85

Sadly I kinda expect the NTT variant to contain only 1 or 2 of the team.

That guy is the worst kind of troll. If you look at his profile and through his comment history, ninety percent or more of his comments are negative just to piss people off.

These Lego variants are better than making them a quantity Variant, which is what Marvel did. Some of those Marvel Lego Variants will set you back $40 - $60 smackers. meh . . .

I think DC is having fun with all of these variant themes. Some people hate but I think it's awesome that they are releasing the original covers too. I really enjoyed the Batman 75th anniversary covers... The Selfies... not so much.. but I'll pick up the originals, so thanks DC for being fun and giving me options.

The female character covers are horrible here. Well, except Catwoman.

Everything is awesome. This makes me laugh.

I don't know about you guys, but I like DC's variant themes.

Posted by BlackSerenade83

I'd love to get my hands on that Sinestro variant.

Posted by IDontLikeBirds

Had hoped for an Earth 2 one, but guess I'll only pick up the Aquaman cover.

@spidey_jackson: i hate people like that. 'why aren't you dumb happy like me? why don't you like what i like? you're a troll. i say troll because i can't think of anything else.' ugh. you don't see people saying that in real life.

Frankenstein stomps

I don't get why people hate on variants, don't like them, don't buy them.

Posted by G-Man

@the_stegman: Someone tweeted it was like we were back in the 90s. This is NOTHING like that.

@i_dont_like_comics: I sympathize with the troll thing. I've been called one for my sense of humor on other sites.

*sigh* Even in LEGO form, Kara is still beautiful

Hate hate hate variants! But they are LEGOS!!!

Edited by slade_wilson

Lego Frankenstein and Lego John Stewart plus Tim Drake on a Batman and Robin cover...This is the happiest day of my life

Posted by kleo_94

Man, am I the only one who doesn't like LEGO ones? Ugh

Posted by SmashBrawler

Frankenstein looks plain awesome.

Posted by MadeinBangladesh

These are cool and FUN!!!! But I don't like Legos and how they look.

Edited by Captain13

I'm happy John Stewart made the cut. Too bad the background of his cover features Guy's origin.

I still pick it up though.

Posted by The_Man_With_Questions

So Beast Boy, John Stewart, Stargirl, Supergirl, Harley Quinn, Catwoman, & Frankenstein are all confirmed for Lego Batman three? Cool.

Posted by Saint_Wildcard

Looks like SM/WW is still a thing. I'm glad

Posted by Mister_Sensational


nope I'm right here with you friend.

Posted by mak13131313

The Batman and Robin and Justice League Dark covers are my favorites.

Posted by Avenging-X-Bolt

that awful batgirl's background comic,...

he hasnt been announced yet but he most likely is.

Posted by HolySerpent

the flash one is cool as he!l

Posted by CrazyScarecrow

@tommythehitman: I don't see why he wouldn't be. They found a way to make Hawkeye work in Lego Marvel and Green Arrow is one of DC's main heroes.

Posted by CaptainMarvel4Ever

Frankenstein looks plain awesome.

That's what I was thinking, I wish DC would actually make some non Batman Lego sets so we can get characters like that.

Posted by Wilbertus

Soooooo the Joker is in Batman 36?
