Do the above two images look similar? The first is the iconic spread by Jon Bogdanove and Dennis Janke from the classic Death of Superman storyline, the second is by Dan Jurgens and Jerry Ordway for next week's DCU Legacies #8.

A few words from the book's editor, Mike Carlin, who also edited the original Death of Superman story:

Got Variants?

Here's a couple of variant covers (and one non-variant) to end the day. We've got a double dose of BRIGHTEST DAY, with the covers to issues #17 and #18. Issue #17 is a non-variant by David Finch, and #18 is a variant by Ivan Reis and Oclair Albert. Next, Bill Sienkiewicz has an energetic, stylish cover for DCU: LEGACIES #9. And there's an awesome David Mack variant cover to JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #53.

Enjoy.

It’s time for DC UNIVERSE: LEGACIES

In addition to the 75th anniversary covers we’ll be rolling out here on The Source this week and beyond, we’ve also got a first look at DC UNIVERSE: LEGACIES #1 for you. As some of you know, LEGACIES spans five generations of heroes, from the dawn of the Mystery Men to the present. In the first issue, the Second World War rages on, setting the stage for the debut of a new hero. Masked myths become legends as they begin to step outside of the shadows to earn their place in history.

J.G. Jones' cover to DCU: LEGACIES #1

Written by industry veteran Len Wein and featuring the artistic talents of superstar artist Andy Kubert (inked by his legendary father, Joe Kubert) on the first issue, LEGACIES is a nod to the DCU's rich and storied history presented to the modern reader.
