That Harley Quinn cover, is my number 1
ManCalledSting - 8/24/2014, 5:14 AM
And so am I.
Doopie - 8/24/2014, 5:19 AM
some amazing art skills here. Doug Mahnke is crazy good - love his stuff but I think Jae Lee's is great too. He uses unusual compositions.
MightyZeus - 8/24/2014, 5:37 AM
They really need to change Power Girl's costume.
HavocPrime - 8/24/2014, 5:41 AM
@MightyZeus

They did, but fan out cry made them revert back to an original looking one.
Snotzo - 8/24/2014, 5:45 AM
#1 for me would be the Wonder Woman cover.
feedonatreefrog - 8/24/2014, 5:47 AM
Some others









TheDarkKryptonian - 8/24/2014, 5:48 AM
@HavocPrime Fan outcry made them change back to the boob window? Whyy?? It's literally one of the most impractical costume designs I've ever seen.
TheDarkKryptonian - 8/24/2014, 5:50 AM
@feedonatreefrog Those Constantine and Lobo covers are amazing.
gurugeorge - 8/24/2014, 6:00 AM
Personally, I think feedonatreefrog's selection is better than the OP selection.
feedonatreefrog - 8/24/2014, 6:03 AM
....you said it, not me ;)

(I do like Catwoman and Batman & Robin though)
tylerzero - 8/24/2014, 6:03 AM
@HavocPrime I don't know much about Power Girl but I thought the cleavage serves to distract her enemies (at least that's what I read somewhere)? Seems quite practical to me.
batesmotel - 8/24/2014, 6:03 AM
The JR jr one looks like shit
TheDudeRusty - 8/24/2014, 6:13 AM
Almost everything is an interesting read in the New 52 and the art just solidifies that.
DCGuy - 8/24/2014, 6:18 AM
@TheDudeRusty true.
Jollem - 8/24/2014, 6:20 AM
AEStark - 8/24/2014, 6:22 AM
Did Constantine get the pick of destiny? Also, Doug Mahnke is an absolute BEAST!
AEStark - 8/24/2014, 6:24 AM
It's nice they give JRjr blocky, lego-looking villains to draw. Way to play to his skill set, dc
Jollem - 8/24/2014, 6:34 AM
robot gorilla = haters

feedonatreefrog - 8/24/2014, 6:39 AM
I'm loving JRJR's Superman.
charlie2094 - 8/24/2014, 6:40 AM
They really need to change Power Girl's costume, looks ridiculous, no point to it other than to show off her cleavage...about it. Give her a new costume like they did with Star Sapphire..

Some cool selections, do actually kind of prefer the covers @feed posted. Still cool designs though.
KingRainbow - 8/24/2014, 6:49 AM
#1 catches my attention. Like, dayum, Jason in a Robin suit
0megaDaGod - 8/24/2014, 6:49 AM
JRjr was born to draw just about everybody, but he works well with Supes almost as well as he does with Spidey

And those Wonder Woman covers just make the Gadot pill that much harder to swallow. The character deserves so much better
Bodwulf - 8/24/2014, 6:53 AM
Catwoman 36 for the win.
SniktBub - 8/24/2014, 6:58 AM
I like the Batman and Robin cover.
Battabing - 8/24/2014, 6:59 AM
Let's try to remember that comic book women are idealized renderings.
They're not real women.

Mkay?
DrKinsolving - 8/24/2014, 7:00 AM
Nice, has Wonder Woman always had the shield?

Jollem - 8/24/2014, 7:02 AM
Jollem - 8/24/2014, 7:02 AM
@DrKinsolving - she has on occasion
0megaDaGod - 8/24/2014, 7:06 AM
Being sensitive is kinda sad, but it can play out in hilarious ways
Jollem - 8/24/2014, 7:08 AM
DrKinsolving - 8/24/2014, 7:09 AM
I'm still not sold on Gadot.... but I want to see what Snyder has planned for the WW
daveNoodles - 8/24/2014, 7:15 AM
power girl's giant boobs began as a sort of prank on the editors at DC. her artist at the time feeling that no one was really paying attention to his work, he decided to slowly increase her bust size until someone finally said something. the boob window in her costume - and the purpose thereof - then became an ongoing joke that defined her place in the DC universe as a satire of superheroes. power girl exists as a way for the comic world to laugh at itself, akin to marvel's deadpool. when she takes center stage she is often written with tongue in cheek dialogue that winks obviously at the informed reader, and her stories are typically more "zany" than batman, wonder woman, and the like, often focusing on her personal life as an unbelievably attractive, all-powerful being who chooses to fight crime in a flowing cape and stylized lingerie: what are her relationships like? what do other women within the comic world think of her overly-sexual attire? who feeds her cat when she's out punching hyper-intelligent gorillas to death? how does she pay the rent? you don't have to look too deep in the comic work to find characters just as preposterous as power girl, wonder woman wears less clothing than PG does, superman is built like a greek god on steroids and doesn't wear a mask yet he maintains a secret identity, batman sustains enough injuries in each issue to put a regular man in a coma, yet there he is next month kicking as and getting his ribs broke and his head caved in, and if PG's outfit is impractical, what does that make starfire's?

most fan outcry about covering the boob window came from drooling horny fanboys (and some girls), but that shouldn't be enough to flip the script on PG and take her so seriously. she is meant to be a commentary on all the superhero stuff that we accept despite common sense, and things we embrace as "classic", "traditional", and "par for the course" when it would be perfectly reasonable to address those things. and let's remember that outcry has happened over much less: "wonder woman in pants? no deal!" was a pretty common sentiment when that design was unveiled and pants is actually a super sensible choice for a woman that battles villains with claws and swords and such. and in the comic book movie world, "she/he doesn't have the body for it" is usually the first complaint about any casting news.

@Dr. Kinsolving

Yeah, she rocks a shield when she needs to.





DrKinsolving - 8/24/2014, 7:21 AM
@Battabing

Cool, thanks, those WW pics look epic
0megaDaGod - 8/24/2014, 7:23 AM
@daveNoodles

That is one of the most hilarious industry stories I've ever heard

Also....


WHAT DAFUQ IS THIS SHIT

Jollem - 8/24/2014, 7:25 AM
that's lobo holding lobo's head
0megaDaGod - 8/24/2014, 7:28 AM
Can anyone actually tell me what happened to Lobo

I havn't read New 52 in forever and I'm seriously confused
Shadowmaster35 - 8/24/2014, 7:33 AM
@tylerzero - originally she didn't put anything there because she wanted to have her own symbol and also didn't feel like she was worthy enough yet to wear the classic 'superman symbol' that her New Earth and original Earth 2 families wore so she left it blank until she could think of something to put there. After that people recognized her for it and she just left it that way.

Favorites including that add-ons were:
The wonder woman one
The Red Hood one
The Robins
Lobo Killing Lobo
Harley & Power Girl
Jollem - 8/24/2014, 7:34 AM
there is a new character who claims to be the real lobo. he's pretty much bizarro lobo where he is cultured, highly intelligent and charming and all that. he's probably a clone, where they've dabbled with lobo clones pre-flashpoint
