Exclusive Cover Reveal: DEATHSTROKE #1 Monster Variant

Get a look at Kevin O'Neill's variant cover.

This October, DC Comics is unleashing some themed variants. For the month of October, the theme will be MONSTERS. We've seen some of the variants for other issues when the October 2014 solicitations were released. It turns out we haven't seen them all.

DC has given us a look at the Monster variant for DEATHSTROKE #1.

The cover is by Kevin O'Neill with colors by Ben Dimagmaliw. The issue is written and drawn by Tony Daniel and goes on sale October 22 with a $2.99 cover price. Talk to your local comic shop if you're interested in this cover.

Not his best work.

The monster variants are the worst month yet. Deadly unoriginal and unappealing and of course nothing to do with halloween and coming out of the selfie month which was a very fun concept with some cool variants it only makes the monster ones look worse.

Well, you asked for it:

Repulsive, isn't she?

A #1 comic shouldn't have any themed variant cover. Just have an awesome cover to attract readers, this would not draw me to it.
