🤩 EyeCandy: Variant Covers/Artists Collection

Didn’t he use to go by “Francesco “Batt” Mattina”? I swear I remember seeing his signature appear on his art in that way about a decade or so ago, but maybe I’m thinking of someone else.

I saw this in person today. It was $25 and I didn’t buy it cuz sticker shock.

But it’s way more awesome than this screenshot can show you. Every part that is gold is actually shiny gold foil… :star_struck:

I dunno if I should go back for it… :money_with_wings:

Here’s next month’s (11/23) Wonder Woman Black & Gold variant by David Nakayama.

Plus one by Stephanie Hans.

Those covers are why I’m sure my trade-waiting WWB&G is the correct course of action for how I choose to read it, because I would hate to miss out on those covers.

Or spend the extra scratch for them in singles for that matter, as my singles budget is already allotted for other titles (and potential variants from them).

I wish I could get this cover but I know I won’t be able to. :broken_heart:

These are actually jaguars to illustrate her South American heritage - particularly the black one is evidence of this (black panthers are just jaguars or leopards with different coloration).

Sorry to be an animal nerd but I couldn’t help adding that. :wink:

That’s an awesome cover, thanks for sharing! I’d love to get it to go with my Nubia/lion one. :heart_eyes:

Never fear, for there’s always the trade route. That’s been my go-to for variants that are limited and likely sell for more than what the eventual trade will.

Don’t apologize. :slight_smile: I appreciate the correction, and have notated it above. :slight_smile:

You’re welcome. I’m always happy to spread the joy that is Yara. :heart_eyes:

That’s a good idea. As if I didn’t have incentive enough to already pick it up, the thematic similarity to the Nubia #1 variant is even more incentive. Good call! :superman_hv_4:

I can’t choose a favorite between these two. :heart_eyes:

For me, the variant with jaguars and Yara narrowly edges out the variant with her and Jerry.

Now @Shayera.Hol, are you like me and instantly thought of Rosario Dawson when you saw #8’s variant? That pose just is Ms. Dawson as Ms. Flor, I feel.

I know, RD isn’t Brazilian (or is she? :man_shrugging:) but she just looks the part to a perfect degree.
