For December DC Comics are continuing to their theme variant covers but this time there is a twist. Instead of just normal variants, each variant will come three varieties: full colors, inks, and pencils. The buyer won’t know which of the three they will get as they will all come in the following black polybag.
In addition to the three normal varieties (color, ink, pencils) one lucky buyer will truly hit the jackpot as each artist created an original 1 of 1 sketch cover which was slipped in the mix as well. Here is J. Scott Campbell’s original sketch variant that he posted on his Facebook page. Sadly with the number of collector’s that will buy copies of these books and never open them its likely that a few of these original sketch variants will never see the light of day.
Here’s the full list of comics and artists:
- Harley’s Little Black Book 1 – J. Scott Campbell
- Justice League 47 – Jim Lee
- Justice League Of America 6 – Joe Madureira
- The Flash 47 – Terry Dodson
- Green Arrow 47 – Tim Sale
- Wonder Woman 47 – Amanda Conner
- Superman 47 – Lee Bermejo
- Batman 47 – Alex Ross
- Harley Quinn 23 – Bruce Timm
- Green Lantern 47 – Darwyn Cooke

If you are a fan of DC Comics Bombshell Variants from last June (June 2014) then strap in, because you are in for a treat. First up will begin releasing a new Digital first series centered around the Bombshell characters. It will be written by Marguerite Bennett and have art by Marguerite Sauvage. The series “Introduces retro-bombshell versions of Batwoman, Wonder Woman and Supergirl in an alternate reality where super-powered female heroes are on the front lines in WWII (DC Comics).” The series will begin releasing digitally first in July with the first print version released August 12th.
I assume the series will be like most of their other digital first series where digital versions will be released weekly for 99 cents and print versions will collect every three to four digital issues and release for 2.99 to 3.99. This isn’t the first time DC has released a comic series based on one of their lines of figures. Back in 2012 they had a Digital first series based of the Ame-Comi statues that was actually pretty good (check it out here on Comixology).
There will also be new Bombshell statues! DC released pictures of the first two featuring Killer Frost and Cheetah.
It is no secret that the of the DC Comics Variant Cover theme months the most popular by far has been the Bombshell themes. Since their release DC has put their Bombshell characters on statues, glass wear, t-shirts, lip balm, you name it. So it’s pretty exiting then that DC have just announce that they will be releasing another set of 21 Bombshell variant covers this August! Not only did they just announce they are coming out but they also released them all on their website! So check them out and start saving your money now!
Usually these variant covers sell out pretty quickly but I got a feeling these Movie Poster variants won’t last the day they go on sale. I’m hoping to pick some up but more likely will be forced to get them off ebay.
We may all ready be half way into Shock-tober, the holiest of months, but its never too late to start celebrating. First thing we have is that all month long DC Comics is going to be releasing Monster Variant covers to a lot of the comics coming out this month. In the past these line wide variants had been more rare but since March of this year there has been some sort of line wide variant every month.
There was Scribblenauts, Steampunk, Robot Chicken, MAD Magazine, Batman 66, Bombshells, Batman 75th Anniversary, Selfie, and now Monsters.
Here is the complete compilation of all the monster variants coming out this month.
