EXCLUSIVE: DC Celebrates “Batman ’66” in May with Variant Covers by Mike Allred

DC Comics has made releasing variant covers with a unifying theme a monthly habit in 2014 — in January it was “Scribblenauts;” in February it’s steampunk; in March, “Robot Chicken;” in April, “MAD.”


So what’s next? CBR can exclusively reveal that stemming from the success of DC’s “Batman ’66” digital-first series — and the recently announced, long-anticipated release of the 1960s “Batman” TV show on home video — May will bring 19 “Batman ’66”-themed variant covers celebrating its distinct visual style, each by Mike Allred, including the “Wonder Woman” #31 variant, debuting here.

Here’s the schedule of variants by Allred, who has drawn “Batman ’66” covers since the comic started last year, and is illustrating the upcoming “Silver Surfer” series for Marvel:

May 7: “Action Comics” #31, “Detective Comics” #31, “Earth 2” #23, “Green Lantern” #31.

May 14: “Batgirl” #31, “Batman” #31, “Green Lantern Corps’ #31, “Superman/Wonder Woman” #8

May 21: “Batman ’66” #11, “Batman/Superman” #11, “Batman and Frankenstein” #31, “Batwoman” #31, “Harley Quinn” #6, “Justice League” #31, “Wonder Woman” #31
