DC is launching a second round of DC Bombshells variant covers featuring retro pinup versions of its characters — and a digital-first series — this summer. The Nerdist has several covers including The Flash #43 by Ant Lucia, featuring Killer Frost.
Newsarama has a round-up of all the covers released so far. One notable difference from the first round is that while the first round was all women, some of the covers feature men this time, including Sinestro, Dick Grayson, and Aquaman (and probably more, but I haven’t looked through the whole list yet).
Update: Apparently the the Bombshells series features “retro-bombshell versions of Batwoman, Wonder Woman and Supergirl in an alternate reality where super-powered female heroes are on the front lines in WWII” as well as “Monsters, magic, mayhem, & Marguerites” (the last item being a reference to the writer and artist on the series, Marguerite Bennett and Marguerite Sauvage).

DC Comics’ July variant covers are all themed around Teen Titans Go, the wacky cartoon version of the characters currently airing on the Cartoon Network. In this one, released through Geek Mom, the Flash seems to have confused Beast Boy for Gorilla Grodd.

Among DC’s Joker variant covers for June, including Flash #41 by Eddy Barrows and Marcelo Maiolo.

DC has revealed their March variant cover theme: each variant that month will be based on an iconic movie poster. Bill Sienkiewicz draws a North by Northwest-inspired cover for The Flash #40.
CBR has collected a gallery of all the covers released. There are some great choices here, like Green Lantern in the style of 2001: A Space Odyssey, and some odd ones, like Justice League Unlimited in the style of Mars Attacks.

Harley Quinn takes over DC’s variant covers for February 2015, and CBR unveils five covers including The Flash #39 by Amanda Conner and Paul Mounts.

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!
