DC Comics Reveals Variant Covers for Hanna-Barbera's Future Quest and Scooby Apocalypse

This May, DC Entertainment unveils a new take on classic Saturday Morning cartoon characters with the release of Future Quest and Scooby Apocalypse, and here’s a look at some hot variant covers for these two great books! 

Evan “Doc” Shaner's Standard Cover

On sale May 18, Future Quest features stories by Jeff Parker (Batman ’66, Justice League United) with art by Evan “Doc” Shaner (Justice League: Darkseid War: Green Lantern). This series takes teenage adventurer Jonny Quest and the classic Hanna-Barbera action heroes into a whole new dimension! Future Quest will ship with a total of four variant covers (in addition to the standard cover by Shaner) and we’re premiering two of them today. Steve Rude gives us his fantastic depiction of Jonny Quest and his pal Hadji, while Bill Sienkiewicz delivers an awesome rendition of Space Ghost, Jan, Jace and their mascot Blip, against a backdrop of his arch-nemeses, Brak and Zorak!

On May 25, Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, Daphne, Velma and Fred are at it again, solving the mystery behind a nanite-infected world in Scooby Apocalypse. It’s monsters, mayhem and madness from co-writers Keith Giffen (Sugar & Spike, Legends of Tomorrow anthology) and JM DeMatteis, with art by Howard Porter (Superman). In addition to the standard cover by veteran artist Jim Lee, we’re showing off the first of four variant covers that will be available on May 25, Scooby-Doo (complete with Scooby Snack) by Howard Porter, and mystery hunter Fred Jones from legendary artist Neal Adams.

I can't wait for these books to come out.  It's not only because they are updates on some of my favorite Saturday Morning Cartoons from when I was a kid, but also how much care DC is taking with them shown by these new covers as well as the kick ass creative teams on each book.  I know that most DC Comics fans have their eyes on Rebirth, but I hope nobody overlooks these...I know I won't.
