DC Variant Covers Go All-Flash in January!
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!

Flash #37 variant cover by Darwyn Cooke. more at Comic Vine.
Next up in DC Comics’ variant cover themes is, for some reason, not a subject or style, but an artist: Darwyn Cooke is doing landscape covers for a ton of DC’s December comics, including The Flash #37.
I first encountered Cooke’s retro 1950s-style art on the miniseries DC: The New Frontier, which I highly recommend. It links the appearance of super-heroes with the dawn of the Space Age, complete with the early Cold War and the societal upheaval going on at the time. Look for the collected edition or pick it up digitally.

A New Kid Flash in Teen Titans / Future’s End
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.?
