Flash #6 Variant Cover by Mike Choi Revealed

The Source has posted the variant cover to Flash #6.  Featuring artwork by Mike Choi, the cover shows the Flash frozen mid-movement.  It has been revealed that Captain Cold will make his first full appearance in Flash in issue #6.

Choi is also quoted in the post, where he talks about some of his artistic influences:

From the get-go, [Flash editor Brian Cunningham] told me to try and infuse more dynamism to my figure work by looking at artists like John Buscema and Wally Wood, and hopefully that’s coming through bit by bit as my career progresses.

Interestingly, the solicit up at DCComics.com has not been updated to reflect the new content in issue six and still reads as below.  It has been stated by writer Brian Buccellato that the CSI story is “off the table.”

      Ditto on both of those sentiments. (Although for a split second there I was wondering why White Lantern Flash was back.)

      I hope the CSI story doesn’t become some “Lost Tales From The Flash!” book some decades hence. The cover art for that looked really interesting.

    Nice. Also agree that it’s good to see a cover reflect the story.

    That said, I like that DC are using the variants to show a wide variety of artists’ take on the Flash.

    Lee, Capullo, Frank, Choi. I’d like to see some old school artists called in to take another swing at drawing Barry!!

    A new Alex Saviuk Flash cover would be kinda sweet….
