Which Of These DC Comics May Covers Looks Most Like A Final Issue?

Posted by February 18, 2016 Comment

So, which of these covers looks most like a final issue? If the DC Comics Rebirth event is expected in June, these titles will be cancelled, relaunched, renamed or recycled…. but which of them know their fate? We are looking for montage shots of all the characters than have been in the series,  singular figures looking mournful or exaggerated visions of death… let’s go find out!

We start with Secret Six #14. They have an entire cast shot, looking at the reader and each raising their drink to them. This could not be more of a final issue cover if they started singing Peter Cook and Dudley Moore’s Goodbyeeee song.

Grayson just puts everyone it can on the cover. Everyone! Even those who haven’t been on previous covers. A pretty sure sign even if they don’t have glasses in their hands.

Batman/Superman does the same, everyone in one cover….

Batman Beyond… No More! Back to the viewer from Bruce, you can see a “goodbye, and good riddance” in his eyebrow.

And while this isn’t a final issue shot…. Justice League #51 may be giving as a look at a character that may have a new title in the DC Comics Rebirth… could this be the title Bleeding Cool previously referred to as The Super Man? Starring Lex Luthor?
