If there is one things folks like when it comes to comic books, it’s variant covers. If there is another thing that folks LOVE in general, it’s Legos. (Trust me, you should SEE the line at the Lego Booth at San Diego Comic Con EVERY year.) Well this November, DC and Lego are teaming up to bring these two fan favorites together in a slew of Lego variant covers. 22 covers to be exact, spread out over some of DC’s most popular titles.
In celebration of this fall’s release of LEGO® Batman™ 3: Beyond Gotham, the next installment to the best-selling LEGO Batman videogame, November will see LEGO variant covers spotlighting the brick-tastic versions of the many heroes and villains featured in the game.
