While DC Comics has not yet revealed their cover to the 2nd print of DC Universe: Rebirth #1, artist Gary Frank revealed the following on his twitter account recently.
Is this the cover for the 2nd print of DC Universe: Rebirth #1 or perhaps a Wonder Woman: Rebirth #1 variant or a Justice League: Rebirth #1 variant? Or, will the DC Universe: Rebirth #1 second print cover by Gary Frank feature Dr. Manhattan and/or the Watchmen? Gary Frank did do a nice cover for the Before Watchmen: Comedian #5 after all.
