A few thoughts:
— If you notice, George Perez — whose art adorned the cover of Vol. 1 — is also listed as a cover artist, along with “others.” Like Vol. 1, this will be a wraparound cover, so there’s still much to come.
— UPDATE: Our buddy and contributor Chris Franklin notes in the comments that “the Bolland art is lifted from one of the two binders DC released to hold the loose-leaf Who’s Who pages. I believe the Wonder Woman leg we see is from the other binder, drawn by George Perez. Lightray is from his loose-leaf entry by Art Adams! Starro’s “arm” may be from the Jim Aparo-drawn loose-leaf entry. That’s quite a collage!” Thanks, Chris!
— If you’re a Bolland fan, you’re in luck. DC is also publishing the DC Poster Portfolio: Brian Bolland, on sale in December 2022 for $24.99. It features 20 12″ x 16″ removable covers suitable for framing.
