Cover Talk: June 18, 2017

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there! My dad isn’t a huge Batman fan (it’s not that he isn’t a fan, he just doesn’t nerd out like I do), so I got him a new grill kit! He seemed pretty thrilled about it. The kit came in a customized bamboo box, monogramed with his initials. I’m feeling pretty proud of this purchase considering my dad is the hardest person to shop for in my family (he’s easy to please, but basically has everything that interests him). For all you Bat-dads out there, let me know how you spend your day! According to a Retail-Me-Not survey, most dads just wanted to spend the day with their family. And finally, since it is Father’s Day and this is a Batman website, we might as well enjoy a little “Bat Dad!”

Below you’ll find the cover of each title released this week, followed by the variant covers released this week. Check them out. Study them. Try your best not to let your opinion of the story effect your thoughts on the cover, then vote for your favorite. If you’re like me, and can’t decide on just one, then you can select multiple covers if you would like. Following the poll for this week’s covers, you will find the results from last week’s post. Happy voting!
