It’s a Bat-heavy week in variant land, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. First up, we have Guillem March’s cover to BATMAN AND ROBIN #17, along with Gene Ha’s variant for the same issue. We’ve also got Andy Clarke’s cover to the first issue of David Finch’s BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT (regular and black and white). Need more? How about Amy Reeder’s BATWOMAN #0 cover, Alex Garner’s GREEN ARROW #6, Dustin Nguyen’s jam-packed JUSTICE LEAGUE: GENERATION LOST #14 and Kevin Maguire’s morbid variant for the same issue?
One of the pleasant surprises of the last few months has been BATMAN: BEYOND, from writer Adam Beechen and artist Ryan Benjamin.
