I haven't seen that info anywhere. I'm curious to know the print runs too, but I'm not sure if DC will ever release a statement on that. I really love them all, except for the Matt Taylor cover, which is only mildly enticing to me. My gut feeling is that the Nicola Scott version will be the one with the biggest print run since it features all of the titular Lanterns.

^Yeah, I highly doubt they go out in equal numbers, which would be the only fair assessment of that ... if they then kept track.

Also, Neal Adams has two exclusive variants available on his official website. They're $60 and $70 respectively.

To be honest None of them wow me. Every artist who I would want is note there. Bank's,Kane,Bright,Cooke,Van Sciver,and a Handfull of others who's names escape me.

Right, it's only cause of tumblr and twitter. Not cause he burned bridges.

Ethan is clearly better off doing his own thing, not having to deal with the gatekeepers that have infested the industry. Good for him, he deserves all the success he's having. He's one of the few guys that are going to do well after the fall of the comic industry as we know it.

Its jealously that Ethan can get over $500K for his Cyber Frog books, while these clowns in the industry can't sell their own books. Its because of those idiots that I won't shed a tear if/when the comic industry dies.

Just finally read about this. I'm so excited to potentially pick this up, whenever it is. That cover looks great.

This is ignoring diminishing returns and his inability to make more than one issue every two years or so. Plus, him being a masssive dick to everybody on the internet has scared away a ton of neutral-to-comicsgate readers who had supported the first issue. Who will never come back.

And scamming his own fanbase with fake coins sure didn't help.

Thank God I've already committed to not buying this. For a big anniversary special they should have got some A-list artists. Not the usual Tumblr artists. I'm glad I'm not wasting good money on trash like this.

Probably Matt Taylor's, because it appeals to me most from a visual standpoint.

The art is fine, it's nowhere near terrible. You're also overestimating how important these anniversary specials are considering the Catwoman one got stuck with Kelley Jones:

Usually, I'd pick a 60's cover, but I don't like Mahnke.
My favorite artist there would probably be Ivan Reis, but I do not need another skittles cover.

Amen to no skittles cover. I like the 70s and 80s covers best, but am open to a couple of other ones if my choices are limited when my shop gets it. I never actually told them which one I wanted, hopefully they didnt order all 10 for me thinking I wanted them all.

This would be my favorite of all the covers if Baz and the chick weren't on it.
