First Look at DC Comics Variant Covers for June’s REBIRTH One-Shots

I don't know about you, but I can't wait until June rolls around and we get some rebirth action!  In fact, can someone make a time machine and get us there right now?!?!  If that's not possible, I'm going to time travel the old fashioned way...I'm going to lay on my couch and go to sleep, Rip Van Winkle style. It's a long con for sure, but when I wake up, I'll just get my ass out of bed , head to the comic book store and grab me some Rebirth titles.  Not only that, but I'll have a beard down to my knees and the ladies all love that.  Yea, I know we are only talking a couple of weeks, but I have dreams dammit and they involve a beard down to my knees!  By the way, here are the variant covers along with DC Comics official press release...

Here’s Your First Look at DC Entertainment’s Variant Covers for June’s REBIRTH One-Shots! 

New REBIRTH Titles Debuting This June

DC Entertainment’s line wide titles relaunch, REBIRTH, starts this month with the DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH SPECIAL, written by Geoff Johns with an all-star roster of some of the greatest artists in the game – Gary Frank, Ivan Reis, Ethan Van Sciver and Phil Jimenez! This 80 page blockbuster, priced at $2.99, sets the stage for an all-new universe of epic superhero storytelling beginning in June, featuring the characters and titles that have made DC Comics a favorite of fans for 80 years!

In June, fans will see the first of 17 titles that will ship twice monthly, also at a new lower price of $2.99, beginning with a series of “REBIRTH” themed one-shots. Today, DCE is revealing for the first time the variant cover images that will be available for fans when these books go on sale:
