I’m not sure how I feel about these covers.


I do like how the cover for issue #7 is a great callback to the first issue.


Good point, I didn’t catch that earlier.

I believe you could call the two covers ironic maybe in their issue placement, the first issue cover almost being a hint of what was to come.


and they did another callback when Supergirl showed up

(It’s actually the second issue with that title)
