In December, DC Comics and IDW Publishing will publish “Love Is Love,” a 144-page comic book whose proceeds will benefit Equality Florida and its fund for those affected by the June 12 attack at the Pulse nightclub in Florida. (art

After the two month-line wide-hiatus due to Convergence, THEMED VARIANTS RETURN IN JUNE! And the theme is…THE JOKER! I think it’s his 75th anniversary this year, so it makes sense!
1) Action Comics #41 by Darwyn Cooke
2) Aquaman #41 by Walter Simonson & Laura Martin
3) Batgirl #41 by Rafael Albuquerque
4) Batman #41 by Sean Murphy & Matt Holingsworth
5) Batman/Superman #21 by Jock
6) Catwoman #41 by Javier Pulido
7) Deathstroke #7 by Lee Weeks, & R & T Horie
8) Detective Comics #41 by Patrick Gleason & John Kalisz
9) The Flash #41 by Eddy Barrows & Marcelo Maiolo
10) Gotham Academy #7 by Craig Rousseau
Some pretty interesting covers here, and also of note? The first instances of Gotham Academy & Deathstroke receiving themed-variants! Of these my favourites are Darwyn Cooke’s (I ADORE his art), Jock’s (although it’s hard to tell that Superman is on the one side), and Catwoman #41 by Javier Pulido (with him doing the variant, and Kevin Wanda doing the standard cover, me thinks someone at DC enjoyed Marvel’s most recent volume of She-Hulk)!
