DC 75th Anniversary Variants

Before every single issue in the comicshop had at least two covers and variant covers were considered special (3-4 years ago), DC celebrated its 75th anniversary with a few variant covers paying homage to some of the publisher's classic covers.

The people behind this promotion chose some of the best artists in the industry (Mike Mignola, Adam Hughes, Frank Quitely and Jim Lee, among others) and let them remake a classic DC cover for, in my humble opinion, the best variant set ever.

Here at CBSI headquarters, we have been talking a bit about Lee Bermejo's Adventure Comics cover lately, and we are all big fans of Adam Hughes' Wonder Woman #600, so it seemed like a good time to remind all of us how great these DC 75th Anniversary variants were.

The 1:10s are relatively easy to find at the moment. Some of the others, not so much, but whether you are looking for them or just to enjoy the art again, here are some favorites:

Is that the first Jim Lee JLA cover? Don't remember anything prior to that … Anyway, here's the checklist, enjoy!!!
