If history serves true, you can expect Deadpool superimposed on a lot of covers taking selfies with other heroes soon.
That’s because he loves doing send-ups of DC Comics variant covers, and the selfie is coming in August, as originally reported in May 2014. Last night, though, DC revealed the first cover in perhaps the most appropriate use of social media ever, putting the selfie on Instagram. The cover is a variant for Batman/Superman #14, and features the pair of heroes with Superman forcing Batman to smile. While DC didn’t note the artist in their post, this first variant is by Paulo Siqueira, the artist providing the Red Hood chapter of Secret Origins in August, as well as interior art for Superman/Wonder Woman #11 that month.
On facebook, DC Comics Co-Publisher Dan Didio said of the variant theme for August, “From the people who brought you Scribblenauts, Steam Punk and Bombshell variant covers, August is Selfies cover month in the DC Universe! Yeah, yeah, I know they’re silly, but that’s the fun of it!”
Look for more Selfie variants to debut soon.
