As a general rule, I'm not a huge fan of variant covers, but let me tell you straight up: I love me a theme month. Any time that comics go with a unified cover layout for a month, I'm in, if only to see how nice they look when they're laid out next to each other on a shelf. Of course, it helps if both the theme and the covers themselves are awesome. Which, in the case of DC's variants for May of 2015, is exactly what they are.
The theme is movie posters, and the covers have taken inspiration from all over the world of cinema, and the results are genuinely amazing. I'm particularly fond of Cliff Chiang finally getting to use his Batgirl-themed Purple Rain homage on the cover of a comic, and that Superman x Super Fly mashup is something I've wanted for years, but whoever thought up that Catwoman x Bullitt cover deserves a raise and a paid vacation.

With Christopher Nolan finishing up his third and final Batman movie, some folks are already wondering which director will be next to turn his or her camera on the Caped Crusader. Each director brings their own flavor to Gotham's defender, from Tim Burton's cartoony, gothic take to Nolan's crime movie sensibilities. The
Warner Bros. has unveiled an ominous one sheet poster for The Dark Knight Rises, showcasing Tom Hardy's Bane walking away from a shattered Batman mask beneath some even more foreboding text reading, "The Legend Ends." Following this week's screening of The Dark Knight Rises prologue, the image is especially intense for Batfans. Se
