Jae Lee has been phoning it in for a while now. Seriously.

Guess it's a matter of personal taste, I can get with both covers.

I knew my jimmies would be rustled the moment I clicked on this article just as I knew there'd obviously be a variant like the second cover on this news page.

Same, but then i thought that's literally the only way one makes any superhero character in all of comicdom instantly look more badass :P ;)

It's a really good piece of art though imo.

Since I get my books from DCBS, I ordered the Neal Adams cover. I'm gonna have to check out the others. I like Lee's but that Murphy cover!!

I don't know, Azzarello might be able to reign him in enough to make this readable.

That Sean Murphy cover is pretty amazing. I personally am not interested in this series at all, but shall think of that cover as an homage to the original series.

I really like the assortment of artists they have for the variants. So many (and I mean a lot) of great names. No Jim Lee though? Or was he announced previously? Well whoever the cover artist, it's still a Frank Miller story... Oh well, still excited.
