The Mary Sue Interview: Chip Zdarksy on the Renaissance of Jughead, “The Teen I Wanted to Become”

That Batgirl Variant Cover: What It Means To New Readers

Sometimes, it's OK to not be beholden to all of comics history.

By now, you know that there is a series of variant covers that DC Comics is putting out across all their titles in June to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of their most popular villain, The Joker (like the one above by Javier Pulido for Catwoman #41).

You’re Going to Want to Buy All These Gorgeous LEGO Marvel Variant Covers

Start saving your money now, nerds!

LEGO and Marvel have been joining forces recently to make my eleven-year-old self foam at the mouth with rabid glee. First they put out the amazing Super Hero minifigure sets last year (now's where I would brag about my Hawkeye minifigure if I knew where the heck I put it). Then they released the trailer for the Marvel Superhero LEGO PC game. Now they've announced that in September, several comic book titles will put out LEGO variant covers featuring your favorite characters all adorable and LEGO-fied. I'm not a big variant collector, but I might camp out at my local comic book store for these.

Justice League of America Launch Includes Variant Cover for Each State, Puerto Rico, and D.C.

Comic books and variant covers go together like sandwiches and bread. Sure, comics could exist without them, but it just wouldn't be the same. DC Comics knows this all too well, apparently. As part of the February launch of their Justice League of America title, the first issue will include 52 distinct variant covers. When they say "America," they totally mean all of it. Each state will get their own variant, as well as Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico. Seriously.
