DC Comics November 2014 Theme Month Variant Covers Revealed

We all love LEGO so this makes perfect sense.

You know we can never get enough LEGO. With LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham coming out this Fall, DC Comics is celebrating by showcasing LEGO versions of many of the characters featured in the game. For the month of November, DC will release LEGO variants for select covers.

Here's an exclusive first look at the cover to BATGIRL #36.

The LEGO variants, are the latest in a variety of monthly themes. DC Comics kicked off the year with Scribblenauts in January, followed by Steampunk in February, while March saw Robot Chicken covers based on the Adult Swim show, April celebrated Alfred E. Neuman's birthday with MAD themed covers, May brought a selection of variants by artist Mike Allred done in the groovy style of Batman '66, while June went retro with Bombshell covers based on the popular DC Collectibles line. In honor of the caped crusaders anniversary Batman took center stage in July with Batman 75 variant covers, this month celebrates the self photo with Selfie variant covers, while September jumps to the future with Futures End 3-D motion covers, and just in time for Halloween, October sees Monster variants.

What else can you expect?

How is everyone ignoring the obvious? When do we get legos that can actually pose like this? Lego needs to step-up their game.

@avenging_x_bolt: Sad to say, but I really doubt it. I just don't see WB having that much confidence in their characters/franchises. If GL can get a movie and cartoon, and still get nothing, then I don't see WB doing squat for their non Batman characters.

and to be fair, just because the other heroes dont have solo sets doesnt mean that "nothing is being done with them". Having non-batman characters included in a non Batman set is a hell of a lot better than not having any non Batman characters at all. im quite happy with my Lego Flash, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Superman and Martian Manhunter and will be quite happy to pick up my Lego Plastic Man when the game comes out in November as well as my Lego GL set next year and the Green Arrow and Shazam Legos when they are finally released to the public.

There's a LEGO Plastic Man? My mind is blown (in a good way).

These covers are really cute. I love themed variants. Hope they do a 'pulp heroes' theme like one of those themed annuals they did back in the 90s, but better.

yeah, he's a pre-order bonus from Gamestop.

I'm also surprised that there's no Green Arrow variant; he was in the portable version of Lego Batman 2 as a playable character.

@avenging_x_bolt: I'm usually very positive about DC, but until we see a good change from management, we're stuck with the curse of too much Batman.

@avenging_x_bolt: Not really, DC has been known to shove Batman down our throats like there's no tomorrow.

Never mind. you obviously refuse to accept any kind of positive outcome and that DC could possibly ever branch out one day once a characters proven its success. Im sorry for wasting both of our time by trying to be positive.

@avenging_x_bolt: I'm not blowing it out of proportion, this is something that affects how the non comic fans see DC and Marvel.

I agree but youre making it sound like DC is never going to do anything for their non Batman characters whatsoever and that is a blatant exaggeration.

@avenging_x_bolt: That's all fine and dandy, but it doesn't change the fact that there is still a problem with DC. However we've been going back and forth for a while now, so let's just stop and agree these Lego variants look nice.

there are problems with nearly every company. Im not saying DC is perfect but i think youre blowing this specific matter out of proportion and being overly negative..and yes the variants do look quite nice.

Thas the thing, GL's movie was what prevented him from getting anything in the first place. retailers simply wouldnt order anything Hal Jordan related. The other DC characters dont have those strikes against them.

@captainmarvel4ever: to be fair, those characters are only the ones who are being featured in their cartoons/movies. Once DC can successfully push other franchises then we should be seeing new sets that don't involve Batman.

@captain13: it was pretty obvious he was gonna make the cut IMO but it's good that you're happy : D. As for the background, it looks like several other covers have mismatched backgrounds. Maybe their pages straight from the issue.

@avenging_x_bolt: Sigh... I guess. Still I can't help but wonder why we never got a GL set or a Teen Titans set when Green Lantern TAS and Young Justice were on air. Marvel made Lego sets for their shows.

@captainmarvel4ever: a Green Lantern set with Bats, Hal and Sinestro comes out next year. That's a start

These are pretty cool. DC has been killing it with both their standard and variant covers lately. Today in the comic shop I really had to take some time and pause when determining which cover to get for both Grayson #2 and Wonder Woman #33. It's very rare that happens these days.

I like the artwork for the Supergirl one , behind the actual Lego artwork. She is actually smiling is the world ending or something?

Gasp! Lego Stargirl! That's crazy!

Wish they would've included Green Arrow. At least in the Justice League United cover. I mean Ollie has been one of the few heroes to have lasted throughout the 50's when all the other heroes vanished, he was one of the earliest member of the Justice League and became one of their most important, he has his own live action show. Giving Green Arrow some respect with variants wouldn't be bad. I don't think Ollie was included in any of the variants except for the MAD ones.

I know, I really want a Lego Stargirl :)

Also it would have been really nice to get a Green Arrow cover

That's what I was thinking, I wish DC would actually make some non Batman Lego sets so we can get characters like that.

@tommythehitman: I don't see why he wouldn't be. They found a way to make Hawkeye work in Lego Marvel and Green Arrow is one of DC's main heroes.

So Beast Boy, John Stewart, Stargirl, Supergirl, Harley Quinn, Catwoman, & Frankenstein are all confirmed for Lego Batman three? Cool.

I'm happy John Stewart made the cut. Too bad the background of his cover features Guy's origin.

I still pick it up though.
