Set in the continuity of that earlier team-up, Batman, The Green Hornet, Robin and Kato must go up against a very different General (formerly Colonel) Gumm. What crime could be so deadly as to force these rivals to put aside their differences and join forces again? And what surprise does Gumm have up his sticky sleeve?

Way to go, DC...
Mothchild - 3/17/2014, 3:55 PM
These are first class. Sorrentino is one of my faves atm
imaginejim - 3/17/2014, 3:56 PM
The Lee cover is outstanding. I'm not a huge fan of his work since he changed his style (I miss the splatter work he did in the early 90's), but that is outstanding.
Brainiac13 - 3/17/2014, 3:56 PM
Cool covers.....especially Red Lantern cover.
batcheeks8 - 3/17/2014, 3:58 PM
As usual excellent work by Bermejo, Reis, Capullo and Lee.. also Sorrentino is killing it and I love Jock covers.

The artist they got for Superman is laughable.
Whippet - 3/17/2014, 4:00 PM
LOL. Supes looks like a Garbage pail kid in the face.
GUNSMITH - 3/17/2014, 4:04 PM
RED LANTERN COVER THE BEST
InfiniteMonkey - 3/17/2014, 4:07 PM
That Green Lantern art is magnificent.
Wow!
UltimateHunt - 3/17/2014, 4:11 PM
Secret Origins looks amazing
Fastestmanalive - 3/17/2014, 4:18 PM
Nice. But I think Flash has the best cover and I'm the most excited about it.

WALLYY!!!!!



Also future Flash looks bad ass.
marvel72 - 3/17/2014, 4:25 PM

BlackestKnight - 3/17/2014, 4:50 PM

dckizzle - 3/17/2014, 4:55 PM

Not really a fan of #10/Superman, but I like the rest ;o)
DrunkenNukem - 3/17/2014, 4:56 PM
i love DC comics...
655321 - 3/17/2014, 5:12 PM
I love the Alex Ross one. And The Flash art is awesome. I love Brett Booth's art. I feel he is very underrated. I like checking out his sketches on his Demonpuppy blog.

CaptainAmerica31 - 3/17/2014, 5:28 PM
Green lantern by far has the coolest cover
AquamanIsTheBest - 3/17/2014, 5:35 PM
Where's Earth 2!?!?!?!?
Melkaticox - 3/17/2014, 6:07 PM
@batcheeks8 Trans-formers. More than-meets-the-eye ~♪
staypuffed - 3/17/2014, 6:58 PM
Some cool covers in the bunch.
thebug022 - 3/17/2014, 7:53 PM
Bermejo, FTW!
MrBitterman - 3/17/2014, 8:07 PM
Alex Ross cannot be stopped
ALmazing - 3/17/2014, 8:22 PM
Too bad Alex Ross didn't do all the art for the Batman/Green hornet crossover.
Nomis - 3/17/2014, 8:52 PM
GREG CAPULLO just don't care anymore,
Pokeysteve - 3/17/2014, 9:30 PM
Not liking Lee's art at all. Dude needs to learn to draw backgrounds.
DCfan638 - 3/17/2014, 9:39 PM
Zero Year has started to bore me a bit... I miss the Court of Owls and Joker stuff.

In my humble opinion, Bermejo and Jim Lee are the greatest artists of the genre, and for respectably very different art styles. I really liked the Bermejo-inspired looks in the Dark Knight Trilogy also. Alex Ross is also fantastic. Loved Kingdom Come.
WakeOfMagellen - 3/17/2014, 10:41 PM
I don't understand HOW Romita Jr. keeps getting work anymore in recent years.
(His knees "dirty" from an exec?)
Anyways..... 30+ years ago when he was doing Iron Man?
FIRST CLASS work.
(I even have a 8 inch tall Iron Man tattoo on my right arm that I've had for 20+ years and it was BASED on his artwork.)
Since then?
Slowly gone the way of a man with degenerative nerve disease in the hands or something :-(

I think John Romita Jr is overrated and personally I feel that Kick-Ass was Romita Jr's best work.
jimoakley666 - 3/18/2014, 12:45 AM
Love that Jock cover.
CeltiC527 - 3/18/2014, 1:24 AM
Love this cover!

JRjr, get paid to draw bad... Maybe they should employ a monkey
MementoMori - 3/18/2014, 7:23 AM
It's definitely between the Alex Ross cover and Lee Bermejo cover for the number one spot. They are just artists who always bring it full force to the comic book genre. Puts a smile on my face. I could spend days just looking at the both of their works of art.

@nikgrid
