After something of a dry spell, Supergirl is getting the benefit of variant covers.
In honor of the Flash's 75th anniversary, the January DC books will sport a Flash based variant cover. And they covers are based on classic DC covers albeit with a Flash upgrade, like this cover of Supergirl #38. I'll be covering all the January solicits tomorrow but today is all about the variants.
Here is a link to Newsarama's coverage: http://www.newsarama.com/22474-the-flash-gets-next-variant-cover-month-for-75th-anniversary-in-january-2015.html
Supergirl #38 is a riff on Supergirl's first appearance in Action Comics #252. The art is by Michael Avon Oeming. And it is amusing to see the Flash interrupt the cousins from meeting.
They are all worth seeing and trying to figure out what the base cover is. But I thought I would share two.
This is Action Comics #38 by Dave Johnson. And this is based on ...
Neal Adams' Action Comics #485 (which is a riff on the more famous Superman #233).
And Harley Quinn #14 by Bruce Timm which is based on ...
Bruce Timm's Mad Love special.
I hope these are of the 50/50 variety of variants so I don't need to shell out major dough and reserve copies.
I wonder/hope if there will be Supergirl based variants when her TV show hits the small screen.
