DC Comics has revealed the first two covers of the 52 variant covers for the upcoming Justice League of America #1.

It’s a rather plain cover, and one that is heavily influenced by the Raising of the Flag on Iwo Jima moment originally captured by Joe Rosenthal.  The good thing is it is easy to drop the remaining 50 flags into the template and move on.

According to The Source, readers will be able to order whatever flag variant they want, without your comic book store having to order a set number of copies.  Personally, I still think it would be a good idea for comic book stores to order their state flag variant for the store, and only by special request to order flags from other states (state pride and all of that).

Justice League of America #1 arrives in stores on February 06, 2012.  If you have hoping to get a variant cover or covers, you best let your comic book store know right away.

      It’s not that different from what all publishers do when they sell variant covers for local comic book stores.

    What about overseas’ customers? Can I have the Union Flag, please? (Or do I have to order the Hawaii version?) :)

    Any way I can change my vote on the poll of the week? Because that is probably the lamest thing for a variant I have seen in my life. *sigh*

    And here I thought they’d be making completely different cover designs for each state. This is just…disappointing.

      That’s what I thought too, like North Carolina having Andy Griffith beaming warmly in the background.
