Too bad you don't have the Superman/Wonder Woman one. It is the best one.

Edit: Well you have it now.

I love the action comics and the flash one. The Bruce Timm and Supes/WW one are cool as well. These look pretty fun!

I would be upset that DC is still doing the monthly variant thing, but these are just so good I don't care :)

Seems more Wally and less Barry.

I like seeing classic Harley again, (for that matter I blame Barry for her and Joker breaking up) but the Flash #123 homage puts me in a dark place.

First you turn her into an emo chew toy, now you go and humiliate her like this?

The Flash #39 one by Howard Porter is my favorite Harley Quinn by Bruce Timm is a close second. The Sinestro cover confuses me tho, it depicts Kyle as the White Lantern so why isn't Guy a in his red gear?

Gnarrk! With the Titans! The Dick, Donna, Wally, Roy, and Garth Titans! Hell to the yeah!

I really love all of these covers except the Superman/Wonder Woman one and Sinestro. For some the art may not be the best (some trouble giving a Golden Age feel for some) though I love the concept of the covers and the retro comic references. I mean Robin is back in his speedo! I thought I would never see the speedo Robin again! I know the costume is stupid and silly though it really expresses who Dick is as a Robin. The costume is flamboyant and circusy which represents Dick well. He is the boy from the circus.

Really the Robin suits should reflect the Robin. Dick is the boy from the circus hence the reason for the flamboyant costume. Jason is the replacement hence the reason he wore the same Robin uniform. Tim is the new, cool Robin meant for the readers growing up with him. His costume was cooler and more fit for the 90's and evolved nicely in the 2000's. Damian reflects a more ninja assassin look which sums of Damian's upbringing perfectly.

Happy to see Bruce Timm doing stuff and New 52 Bruce Timm Flash. Justice League United is a great theme. Adam Strange and the Flash! Two of Infantino's best work for characters! I also love how all the Batman covers are based off some of my all time favorite Batman covers.

Excellent work DC! And thanks for bringing back some retro and giving us more Flash!

@blackhawk000111: The Superman/Wonder Woman cover's one of my faves. That and the Teen Titans cover.

If Flash and Superman are so fast, why don't they just solve every problem on earth in under a second? Because Flash is more then capable of doing so.
