Update 9/6/15 with more covers. I now have the current slate of 41 known covers represented.
This October Marvel is releasing Hip-Hoop Variant Covers for 27 different comics. As far as I can tell this is the complete list of covers they will be releasing. I saw reports of there being 50 different covers but that changed to 25, and then I was able to find 31. I’ll update this post with any additional covers if they wind up actually creating them.

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!
DC continues their theme variant covers in July (2015) with Teen Titans Go! There will be 23 total spanning across various books. This is going to take place once the Convergence Event is over so there are a lot of new titles joining the fold this time.
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.
