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

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

— 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:
