DC COMICS Celebrates HALLOWEEN with Monster-Themed Variants this October

It’s Halloween in July at the DC HQ, as the company releases the first look at September’s Monster themed variant covers featuring zombies, vampires, crazy eight-eyed creatures, and more.

DC’s themed variant cover cavalcade has been a monthly staple since the beginning of the year, kick-starting with Scribblenauts Unmasked themed variants for January, and moving on to Steampunk variants for February, Robot Chicken variants for March, MAD variants for April, a Batman ’66 theme for May, Bombshells variants for June, a special assortment of Batman variants for the beloved Bat-guy’s 75th Anniversary for July, and the pop-culture referencing selfie variants for August. September, however, will not have any themed variants, but will instead feature one-shot tie-ins to the company-wide event, Futures End. In place of the standard covers, 3D lenticular versions will be sold alongside standard editions.
