Three Wise Guys

Category: Covers, Timely — By

Impulse #57

I was going to post a different cover tonight, but then I noticed Bart saying “Sweet Christmas!” on this one. With the recent Luke Cage casting announcement, it seemed appropriate.

Have a merry Christmas if you celebrate it, or just enjoy your day if you don’t. And check out our gallery of Flash Christmas covers through the years.

DC Variant Covers Go All-Flash in January!

Category: Covers — By

DC has announced the theme for January 2015’s variant covers, and in honor of the Flash’s 75th Anniversary, the theme is: The Flash!

Each of the 22 covers is an homage to a classic comic book cover, made a little…Flashier.  And the variant for The Flash #38 is, appropriately enough, a Howard Porter take on Flash of Two Worlds!
