COMICS: Alfred The Butler Cosplays As Batman In More DC "Selfie" Variant Covers

Gary Frank, Tommy Lee Edwards, Craig Rousseau, Andrew Robinson and Amanda Conner provide the latest "Selfie" variant covers for DC Comics as we see Superman posing with a cat he's just saved, Alfred Pennyworth dressing up in Master Bruce's cape and cowl, and more...

Superman
Batman
Lantern
Nightwing
Harley

The covers above are from Action Comics #34 (Gary Frank), Detective Comics #34 (Tommy Lee Edwards), Green Lantern #34 (Craig Rousseau), Grayson #2 (Andrew Robinson) and Harley Quinn #9 (Amanda Connor). Some are better than others, but each is very creative in its own way. Selfie variants are a smart idea, and they do make a nice change from Marvel's constant Deadpool-centric "hilarious" covers. What do you guys think? Be sure to sund off with your thoughts below!

I like you DC, but c'mon... this is a terrible idea.
CommanderShepard - 7/8/2014, 4:56 PM

JordanKing - 7/8/2014, 4:59 PM
The Alfred one is funny admittedly.
Sipprelle - 7/8/2014, 4:59 PM

ALegendaryPanda - 7/8/2014, 5:17 PM
Lol these are awesome!
kevberg - 7/8/2014, 5:19 PM
Alfred has had his junk in the bat suit!
TheManFromMars - 7/8/2014, 5:22 PM
Alfred is gonna be fired if he posts that on Facebook.
CuddlyCereal - 7/8/2014, 5:23 PM
some of these characters have been around for 70+ years. Not everything has to be serious at all times. A little fun and silliness can be had on occasion.
DatScarletPimPerNeLL - 7/8/2014, 5:24 PM
Didn't realize Dick was that short.
DrDoom - 7/8/2014, 5:25 PM
These are just as [frick]ing stupid and awful as the Marvel baby variants.

[frick]ing tools running these comic companies.
MrBlackjack - 7/8/2014, 5:26 PM
The Alfred one is kinda funny, the rest are lame.
DeusExSponge - 7/8/2014, 5:27 PM
The Alfred cover is the best, because he's the god damn Batman of course!

These are great! Nice to see DC has a good sense of humor.

Supes is all like haha I got yo cat sucka!
sameoldthing - 7/8/2014, 5:39 PM
As fan art or pro artists just messing around these are ok.
As actual comic book covers?...not buying any of these. Weak.
dio - 7/8/2014, 5:41 PM
Supes just stole those peoples cat...what a dick.
MrBlackjack - 7/8/2014, 5:54 PM
Josh, we must wage war now!

Some people in this thread need a sense of humor..
JamesMan - 7/8/2014, 6:04 PM
Haha they're variant covers, let the creators have some fun with an run of issues you don't have to buy.
JamesMan - 7/8/2014, 6:05 PM
@MrBlackJack

You heard the man, stop sucking DiCaprio's dick!
CBLindabury28 - 7/8/2014, 6:05 PM
No way, I can't believe someone would say these variant covers are terrible, of course everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but they are pretty funny and very creative. DC is using trends like the, "selfie," to their advantage, thats all.
ManCalledSting - 7/8/2014, 6:06 PM
Excuse me, but as a man who's 5' 10" I'd like to point out that 5' 10" is one inch higher than the national male average in the States. So 5'10" is tall.
ManCalledSting - 7/8/2014, 6:08 PM
Also, the selfies are no more stupid or silly, than the kiddie variants Marvel does. Their all unique, and they are hit or miss
MrBlackjack - 7/8/2014, 6:09 PM
@JamesMan:

Ahhhh, it's impossible! I need to stop sucking dick and "[frick] off again" (again?) at the same time!
Action - 7/8/2014, 6:10 PM
I love the face Dick makes. Most guys take their selfies like that.
ComicsBornAndBred - 7/8/2014, 6:10 PM
5'10 is tall??
ComicsBornAndBred - 7/8/2014, 6:12 PM
I'm 6'3 and tha stall imo. 6'1 an up is tall I believe. That's why all the major heroes are like 6'2...Batman & Cap, 6'3...Superman and so on
TheDirtyMexican - 7/8/2014, 6:14 PM
I'm about 3'4. That's average for a mexican though.
ComicsBornAndBred - 7/8/2014, 6:16 PM
@TheDirtyMexican haha lol
ManCalledSting - 7/8/2014, 6:24 PM
ComicsBorn: I hope you caught I was joking
Franshu - 7/8/2014, 6:26 PM
The Alfred one is the best of the bunch. Pretty well-drawn also
DTor91 - 7/8/2014, 6:28 PM
@DrDoom

They sell. It works. They don't care what you think either.

That Harley one has excellent composition. It's Amanda Conner though, she's one of the best.
ComicsBornAndBred - 7/8/2014, 6:29 PM
@ManCalledSting I caught on lol I was kidding as well.
Franshu - 7/8/2014, 6:30 PM
