Horror-ific Variant Covers From DC This October

Horror-ific Variant Covers From DC This October

Just in time for Halloween. I wonder if they planned it that way.

Literally dozens of DC fans were relieved today as Buzzfeed announced October's variant cover theme: Halloween. This totally unpredictable move satisfied those collectors who were not looking forward to going cold turkey after September’s upcoming 3DNado 2.  A rag tag group of up and coming artists such as Neal Adams, Rafael Albuquerque, and Chris Burnham have been tasked with depicting iconic DC characters (and, maybe, Cassandra Cain) as ghastly horrors appropriate for Halloween. And, yes, I mean ghastlier than normal.

Here's six of them:

Action Comics #35 variant cover by Jason Pearson


Aquaman #35 cover variant by Mark Nelson


Batman and Robin #35 variant cover by Chris Burnham


Justice League #35 variant cover by Rafael Albuquerque


Superman #35 variant cover by Jason Pearson

Wonder Woman #35 variant cover by Aaron Lopresti

About the Author - GHERU


RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time.  RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage.  Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write.  RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them.  RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor.  You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
