Artist Warren Louw's variant covers for Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy #2 embrace the musical passions of the title two heroines.
The variant covers, which were revealed on Twitter, feature the two in a hyper-colored and psychedelic art style. Both are sporting headphones that notice that match their particular color themes, with Poison Ivy's headphones being (obviously) green while Harley Quinn's headphones matching her red and blue hair as opposed to her red and black-themed outfit.

Louw explained the process behind them on Instagram, writing, "I wanted to show Harley from a different perspective, more from her light hearted and fun side VS from her darker aspects. I also wanted this artwork to convey her strong and lively character with music playing loudly, which is open to interpretation to the viewer for what she might be listening to."
Louw called designing Ivy a challenge, saying, "I felt like I was being asked to climb Everest for a second time, but I was up for the challenge and here she is! Took my own creative license on her bark since I felt it was a better design choice."
