As you can see, there are a lot of Flash-related trades out that month. And the two Silver Age trades are using placeholder images for their covers, as the solicits don’t show their purported Evan ‘Doc’ Shaner art. Shaner has been posting drawings of Silver Age Flash on social media lately, so presumably that’s a taste of what the final covers will be.
