Newsarama has a ton of DC Comics variant covers for July, including…
Flash #2 Variant Cover by Dave Johnson
Also among the Futures End covers revealed today: Teen Titans, by Karl Kerschl (Wednesday Comics: The Flash and Teen Titans Year One). And if a future Wally West wasn’t enough, the “after” team lineup includes what looks to be a new Kid Flash… though her costume looks a bit reminiscent of Speed Freak, a member of the alternate-reality Love Syndicate of Dreamworld who appeared in Grant Morrison’s “Second Crisis” way back in Animal Man #23 (1990).
Also, it looks like we’ve got Lagoon Boy, Klarion the Witch Boy, not sure about the figure in the back, and up front…um…the Tattooine representative of Batman, Inc.?
Karl Kerschl (The Flash in Wednesday Comics) has posted the artwork from his upcoming Teen Titans #90 variant cover, focusing on a certain yellow-clad teen speedster. Click through to the artist’s blog for a larger view.
