Next week, we’ll get the full rundown of comics coming from DC in May 2016, but for now, here’s a rundown of what the comic book publisher has planned for all of its New 52 #52 issues!

To celebrate the occasion, DC Comics has a number of variant covers arriving that pay homage to the first issues that launched the New 52 initiative.

Here are the variants next to the original covers.

I like this twist on the variants and seeing different artists interpret the originals, so I may be picking up both covers in May.

  1. These variants look pretty awesome! However, I still feel like variants a bit lackluster for such a special anniversary. I don’t know, it’s better than nothing!
