Doom Patrol #1 cover

Well Newsarama has their August sneaks up, so I guess it's safe to give this away.

Here's the cover for Doom Patrol #1 - standard edition.The image above is the version I've been providing slivers from.

Here's the solicit cover:
Some subtle, but noteworthy differences between the two: the "background" cover and Rita's eyes and costume most noticeably. I know the version I've been giving peeks from is NOT the final version. As we all know, the version shown with the solicits very well might not be the final version either. We'll find out for certain in March!

And the solicit text from Newsarama:

Written by Keith Giffen; co-feature written by Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis

  1. That's the actual cover? Tres cool!

  2. That is utterly badass, both versions!

  3. The solicit cover is "THE" cover, according to my source, which is not THE Source.
