DC has revealed the last five Bombshells variant covers by Ant Lucia, featuring 1940s/50s style pin-up girl art, including the alternate cover for The Flash #32. The themed covers will appear on a number of DC’s comics in June.

I’d been wondering who was going to be the focus of the Flash cover ever since it was announced, since DC had erased their prominent female speedsters back in Flashpoint/New 52 launch.
