An amusing homage
DC has posted sketch version of various August covers at The Source
One that amused me was the cover for Flash Rebirth 5. Not everybody will like it, given earlier discussion.
This is the cover to Flash Rebirth 5 by Ethan Van Scriver.
This is of course a grimdark reimaging of Carmine Infantino's cover for Flash 123 which first introduced the multiverse.
It took me a few seconds to get what EVS's cover was going for, but once I did I found it funny. (Those who are less happy with the grimdarkening of Flash Rebirth may be less amused.) I think the best touch of the new cover is Jay Garrick in the background on the right side.
