Exclusive Preview | Planet of the Apes/Green Lantern # 4
Variant covers are fact of life in the comic book industry. But a book like Planet of the Apes/Green Lantern with its unexpected pairings, offers a lot of examples the best kind of variant covers. Here, the artists can cut loose and mash up the two universes without alienating the fans of either series.
Fist up is the main cover by Dan Mora, which finds Hal Jordan in an alliance with Zira to help her save her love Cornelius.
Next up is a cover by Mike Mayhew that imagines this meeting of the franchises as if it was a crossover movie from the ’60s.
Paul Rivoche had some fun using the classic Green Lantern/Green Arrow # 85 cover that finds a different take on the Speedy dilemma. But we’re pretty sure that the Taylor revelation is a joke.
Felipe Massafera did the “Spectrum’ variant cover that brings together a few of the different variant lantern corps together.
Finally, David Ryan Robinson provided a vintage variant cover edition that imagines the crossover as if it was an action figure line.
