DC has released the regular and variant covers for Flash #46, which is due out in May, and both are very interesting. At left, you can see the main cover by Dan Panosian, which shows Wally West reacting to scenes from his past (such as Savitar, Zoom, Impulse, and his marriage to Linda) and suggests he may get back more of his memories. And at the end of this post you can see the variant by Francesco Mattina, featuring an intense Zoom in his classic look.
So obviously “Flash War” is going to be difficult for Wally, and it sounds like Zoom is going to put him through the ringer again. What are readers hoping to see happen in the story?
Today DC released some of their variant covers for November, which have a Justice League movie theme. Not all of them depict the Flash, but he’s on at least five of the covers. They feature art from artists as varied as Howard Porter, Mike McKone, Terry Dodson, Dustin Nguyen, and more. You can see a few here (the one at left is by McKone, and those below are by Porter and Tony S. Daniel), and the DC blog shows all of the variants which have been posted so far. And remember, the film is due out the same month, on November 17th!
Keen on any of the covers? Will you be picking up some of these in November?
Courtesy of Bleeding Cool, here are a couple of Flash-related variant covers from October (see the October solicits here at Speedforce).
