Spotlight Variant Covers by José Luis García-López


From the DC press release:

In 1982, Spanish-Argentine artist José Luis García-López was hired to design an in-house document, the DC Comics Style Guide, delivering a consistent look and characterization for DC’s Super Heroes that influenced comics, animated series, action figures, toys, clothes, lunch boxes, trading cards, sticker books, and more. Anytime a DC artist wanted to use one of their established characters, they’d pull the DC Comics Style Guide (shared internally as 3-ring binder) as a reference for the costume and the general style of the characters appearance.


The model sheets in the DC Comics Style Guide became the standard reference for DC artists and license holders working on DC releases for decades and, thanks to García-López’ timeless character work, has continued to influence many DC artists and fans to this day.


And in July, key character turnarounds have been pulled from the legendary DC Comics Style Guide to be featured for the first time on a set of Artist Spotlight variant covers honoring José Luis García-López! Look for Artist Spotlight variant covers on Batman #150, Green Arrow #14, Green Lantern #13, Shazam! #13, Superman #16, The Flash #11 and Wonder Woman #11.
