Exclusive Cover Reveal: BATGIRL #34 "Selfie" Variant by Dave Johnson

Do you take selfies with this kind of style?

You've likely seen the various "selfie" variants for the different DC Comics coming out. Looks like there's still more to be revealed. DC has given us a first look at the selfie variant for BATGIRL #34, drawn by none other than Dave Johnson.

Do you take selfies?

No. I prefer a creative planned fun picture.

I usually like Dave Johnson, but this is a weak cover. I thought for sure that they were going to use that promo image of her in her new outfit taking a selfie. That would have been better.

Yeah liked the other one better

yeah dc the majority of comic book readers aren't really the selfie taking type

I'll be honest, I think I would give that bike the Jeremy Clarkson treatment; burn it. And if she got another, I'd burn that as well.

Wow, she must own the world's biggest smartphone, since it apparently requires her to use both hands, held apart at shoulder width, to take a selfie. Either that or she carries a full, laptop-sized tablet in her utility belt.

What comics will have these cover?

If you don't like the DC selfie variant covers don't buy them end of story.

*Sigh*… I unterstand DC's idea behind the selfie variants, but all these just kill me on the inside.

So Batgirl #34 has a "Selfie Variant", and then #35 will have Babs taking another selfie for the main cover?

I'm not complaining, but that's kinda odd.

Posted by Ninjashroom

That doesn't even look like it would come out of the camera that she is holding. The angle looks way off.

Why are some fans getting so upset over these sefie covers? They're just variants that you DON'T have to buy.

As for the Batgirl cover, I like the idea, but I wish she was smiling.

Posted by hyperman

I'm gonna miss this Batgirl, has anyone noticed that the new outfit is quite similar to the one worn by Ivone Craig?

Edited by COBRAMORPH

the problem is, every picture posted in this is crap, not because they are selfies, but because they are garbage. I mean, these right here are why I'd never throw away money & waste them on comics.

Yeah, but who takes the best selfies? Spiderman- Selfies since the 1960's

I think it's just weird timing on DC's part. I wouldn't be super surprised if the Batgirl 35 cover changes as a result. Then again, these other selfie covers are variants, so maybe they don't really care.

She looks so much younger in this cover than on Simone's run, even her boobs are smaller...sure this isn't a retcon? lol.

She Takes Selfies And Collects Batman Comics, Who Knew?

Of any of the selfie covers, I like this one, but I despise the fact its a selfie. Bring her hand back into the cover, and we have a workable cover.
