DC Comics has sent Major Spoilers the cover for the first trade of 52 arriving May 30, 2007. This is a great looking cover that I can’t stop looking at (mainly because I made it my new desktop wallpaper).
All I can say is this cover reminds me a great deal of the original Star Wars movie posters from the 70s. If this is indeed an homage, then I can’t wait to see the covers for the other trades when they come out.
Am I wrong? Can you see the resemblance? DC’s only comment when questioned was “Oh, that’s a story for another time…”
And if you are a fan of the brilliant covers by J.G. Jones, you’ll be happy to know all of the covers are going to be collected in a special hardcover edition this August.
