    I’m sorry. DC may have better variants than Marvel and better themes, but this is the worst of the theme months. Some are good, but some of the New52 covers are not homage-worthy. Also, that Batgirl cover is terrible; makes me miss the previous cover artists during Gail’s run (the highlight of her run for me since I gave up on reading Batgirl after the sixth issue).

  • Definitely agree with you for the most part. I do like Rafael Albuquerque’s Batman and Szymon Kudranski’s Green Arrow. I’m definitely with you on Batgirl. She looks like she is lost in space and completely helpless and there is some weird stuff going on with her eyes. They look like they are rolling into the top of her head.
