Well, the Teen Titans one is much better than the normal cover at least.

Actually that is a nice TT cover... though I should point out it's based on a Teen Titans Go! cover. :)

(Plus it helps birthdayboy isn't exactly the scene stealer I feared he'd be)

Nice stuff.

I want to make some kind of tracker to see if DC ever goes a week without posting about Batman.

I'm liking the Flash one

I don't mean to sound negative, but I really wish they did this for Superman"s 75th

@teerack: You're probably better off by waiting till the anniversary thing goes away... but even then, probably not, it's like Marvel going a week without Wolverine, Spiderman or Iron Man getting a mention somewhere.

Me too. Batman gets all the special treatment though :/

Posted by CaptainMarvel4Ever

@sagejonathan: Yeah, but to be fair, this is the year DC is doing variant covers every month, and it is Batman's aniversary, so I'm a little more forgiving. I just hope after this year DC and WB finally say "Ok Bats has had plenty of spotlight for a while, lets move on to our other characters" just some wishful thinking on my part.

@outside_85: I suppose. If DC put the focus on more then one character it probably wouldn't seem as bad.

Is Batman getting ready to trip Flash in The Flash cover?

Yeah I know, that's the first thing that comes to my mind. It's like:

Oh wow, this seems cool, huh...would have been nice is Sups got 1 more thing that was not that 1 title...

while overall she is really well rendered and i love the ingravings on her armor, wonder girls lower legs are really thin and small

Posted by CaptainMarvel4Ever

@2cool4fun: Exactly (although that's a pretty good title to get) I almost feel like I'm missing out, because there are a lot of different and fun things you can do with Superman themed covers.

How did Joker get his face back?

Yeah I want to change are the costumes of the Teen Titans. Cause that's in bad taste.

I like The Flash one!!

Dick grayson should be there...........>_<

Kinda meh. Pass

@amazingwebhead: it's an amazing phenomenon, but skin will actually grow back! Amazing I know! It's state of the art stuff we're dealing with up in hurr. Oh and it's comics...

Edited by AllStarSuperman

Pretty cool how Superman got a bunch of variants on random titles last year

Posted by Superguy1591

@allstarsuperman: At least he got a 75th anny book that Batman can't steal the spotlight in...oh wait...

Maybe Superman makes an appearance in Batman's 52 comic anny book, maybe, right? =/

Posted by LarryAshlynn

nice to see that the Joker has his face back XD

I know, but that much skin growing back in so little time? Hell, it's a miracle he didn't die of infection. (But then, nothing can kill that bastard)

The Flash and Batman covers are awesome, other ones are cool too. For a man who dresses up in all Black and grey, his villains are pretty colorful.

The Flash cover's art is good though I wish there were more focus on the Flash. Batman is focus of the Flash cover. They could've at least given them equal focus.

I don't want people to hate Batman because he's getting all the love and attention. It's like DC playing favorites with their kids and the rest of the siblings resent the favorite child for it, even though it's totally not his fault. Come on, DC. Stop being sucky parents and pay attention to your other kids.

The Flash cover is a great illustration with lovely details, but I really have no idea what's going on in it. The other variants are cool, though.

Love those first two lines. Hard to believe it's been 75 years. He's older than most of his fanbase. XD. I wish I actually dug these covers, though. Shame.
