CBR Reveals Two More Marvel Comics LEGO Variant Covers

Uncanny Avengers #12 - LEGO VariantMighty Avengers #1 - LEGO Variant

It’s new comic book day and CBR is celebrating by revealing two more exclusive Marvel Comics LEGO variant covers to help you get over this weeks hump. This time Leonel Castellani has done homages to another Jim Lee cover and Steve Ditko’s “Unmasked by Dr. Octopus!” cover from The Amazing Spider-Man #12. The more I see of these, the more my wallet hurts and I’m beginning to view September through a giddily dreadful delight. These covers will adorn Uncanny Avengers #12 and Mighty Avengers #1, respectively.

I need to call my comic shop.

LEGO Magneto Cover Variant Revealed

legoMagneto

Forum member TooMuchDew did some sleuthing on his own and found the above variant cover for the upcoming All New X-men #17 by, who else, Leonel Castellani. This cover pays tribute to the Jim Lee gatefold cover of X-men Volume 2 published way back in 1991. It would have been awesome if Castellani did the other three sections of Lee’s famous cover.

Seen any covers we haven’t… covered… here yet? Drop us a line and let us know.

LEGO In DC’s Darkness & Light Exhibition

Nathan Sawaya was on hand to assemble and donate this brick built recreation of Jim Lee’s Batman: Justice painting to the We Can Be Heroes Darkness & Light Art Exhibition. ComicBook.com took one of very few photos of the completed piece and while that’s a shame, I understand why few people would be lured away from the main events of SDCC to wander into this small, underhyped art show.
Photoblogger Mayoress also stopped by to get a look and got this shot of Sawaya’s Catwoman scupture and one of his previous Clark & Hal sculpts in flight.

There are two more chances to catch this exhibit on tour in Atlanta, GA – August 4-13th at the Phipps Plaza and Chicago, IL – September 19-26th venue TBA. Fan of Jim Lee’s artwork? You can buy a signed lithograph of the above painting from DC Entertainment. It’s not cheap, but it’s limited to 200 prints and 75% of the price goes directly to the charities supported by DC’s We Can Be Heroes intiative.
