    Default DC is doing Swimsuit Variant month.

    https://www.gamesradar.com/dc-swimsuit-variant-covers/

    If I recalled DC never had swimsuit issues like Marvel did but beat Marvel in bringing it to the modern times. Hope it sells, I sure there will be happy fans of this.

    Not exactly a 90's trend I wanted to see return, but with the artists involved I'll more than likely end up buying a few of them.

    Surpising, indeed.

    I know the 90's is the latest nostalgia trend but this was something we really didn't need to see come back. This kind of obvious objectification fan service is what has led to the stereotype of comic book readers being neck bearded, basement dwelling incels which is the exact opposite of the image you want to portray if you're looking to actually grow your audience.

    At least it's also objectifying men too, and even the women covers aren't very exploitative actually.

    Dick's face looks terrible.

    Bruce's mask looks so odd shirtless

    Isn't Kara still in high school?

    And eh this could've been a fun, dumb thing but the covers are lackluster. Not like I buy many variants anyway.

    I feel like this is the province of Tijuana bibles, which should be published by fly-by-night operations on the margins of legality and kept under the counter at a head shop, where you have to ask for it at the cash register and the proprietor hands it to you in a brown paper bag. When it's the copyright holder publishing it for display with the other comics that week, it doesn't have that sense of corruption and criminality that gives it the right kick.

    No, at this point she has to be at least close to the New Teen Titans' age. Waid's Batman/Superman book takes place in the past and Kara is shown to be around the same age as Dick who is still Robin then. So if they were both teenagers at the time, currently she can't be much younger than him.
