DC COMICS Adds SDCC Exclusive STYLE GUIDE Variant Cover to Line-Up

More beautiful Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez artwork! PLUS: A groovy Super Powers T-shirt…

DC Comics on Thursday announced its San Diego Comic-Con line-up of programming and exclusive products. You can click here for the full rundown but the main thing that jumps out is a special DC Comics Style Guide foil variant cover for Absolute Power #1.

Dig this Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez grooviness:

As you know, DC this month is publishing seven such beauts, with this week’s Green Lantern #13 cover the third in the series. And that’s just the set-up for the big one: August’s release of the 1982 DC Comics Style Guide by Standards Manual. (Featuring, ahem, an interview with JLGL by yours truly.)

Also among the goodies are a series of t-shirts, including one featuring McFarlane Toys’ Super Powers action figures.

I’m totally down for both.

There will also be a Golden Age-size Detective Comics #27 Facsimile Edition with a “movie homage cover.” Not sure what that will look like, so keep coming back to 13th Dimension for updates.

Again, click here for the whole shootin’ match. Prices have not been announced.

  1. I don’t like how these style-guide variants discredit Dick Giordano as inker, but the latest one for “Absolute Power” is pretty darn impressive.

    • the whole thing is that Adams,JLGL none of the people in the late 70s’s and 80s would not have looked as good without Dicks Inks… he sadly doesnt get the respect or credit he deserves ..

    • I’ve seen the Detective edition advertised online (sometime September). I hadn’t realized there was an issue (size) with the last facsimile edition sold. I personally don’t need any more copies of #27. Might have been pretty cool if they had given us modern takes on the issue instead.
