Shannon Watters, Kat LeyhCarey Pietsch's Lumberjanes and James Tynion IV & Rian Sygh's The Backstagers are two of the most popular all-ages comics on the stands right now and both have proven to big books for Boom Studios' all-ages imprint Boom Box.

Next month, Boom Box will release New York Comic Con exclusive variants for each title and we have an exclusive first look at both covers.

Michael Dialynas' cover for The Backstagers #1 continues the trend of covers based on classic musicals with a tribute to Audrey II for Little Shop of Horrors. The variant cover for Lumberjanes #29 also pays homage to a musical, and one with a distinctly New York flavor, as Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur's Natacha Bustos casts Ripley as the latest member of the cast of modern mega-hit Hamilton.

Check out both covers below:
