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. Check 'em out below!
And according to the list at CBR, there's two more yet to be seen:
SINESTRO #11 inspired by WESTWORLD, with cover art by Dave Johnson WONDER WOMAN #40 inspired by 300, with cover art by Bill Sienkiewicz
Seriously, if there is any justice in this world, there will be posters of thesetoute de suite.
