Cliff Chiang Channels JOSE LUIS GARCIA-LOPEZ’s DC Style Guide For New WORLD’S FINEST Cover

What a tease!

Is there a Bronze Age DC fan out there who hasn’t been clamoring for the publisher to release as a book the much sought-after ’80s DC style guides, with art by Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez?

Y’know, the images that look like this:

Artist Cliff Chiang gets it. He produced a pitch-perfect variant cover that homages the art for July’s Batman/Superman: World’s Finest #17.

Check it out — along with the solicitation released Friday by DC:

World War A.I. hits its climax, gueststarring dozens of DC heroes in a war against Newmazo and his machines that will determine the fate of humanityand lay threads for a menace that will soon pop up in the pages of Shazam!

A few thoughts:

— The cover is Batman and Superman teaming up with Green Lantern and Green Arrow. Out. Standing.

— Boxing glove arrow.

— OK, if we can’t get the style guides, how about a series of variant covers featuring JLGL images from the books?

— Here are the other WF covers released by DC:

Dan Mora main cover

Jamie McKelvie variant. Magpie! Of course!
