DC revealed the solicits/covers for Green Lantern (four titles) and Teen Titan (two titles) and guess what? They all use identical backgrounds. That's right, all four Green Lantern titles apperantly feature Hal Jordan chained up to a meteorite (they colored the chains yellow on Sinestro's cover) and the Teen Titans are all laying in the background in identically fallen poses.
To the best of my knowledge, this bumps up the total amount of covers using identical backgrounds to 18, which is approximately 40% of the covers revealed thus far. We've seen that all the Flash comics feature the same background and nine of the Batbooks use variations of Batman chained up (we missed that the Riddler and Mr. Freeze comics both use the same chained up Batman earlier).
While I'll begrudginly accept DC charging an extra dollar for a 3D cover gimmick, I can't justify paying extra money for a lazily executed 3D cover. Is there some limitation to this "new 3D technology" touted by DC that only allows them to use one of six backgrounds? It's my sincerest hope that these aren't the final covers and are just stand-ins for something more original. Otherwise, anyone who pays extra money for these things aren't getting their money's worth.
