If you have ever wondered what a day off would look like for some of your favourite DC characters, the new June 2023 solicitations will be a real treat. The variant covers show some of the most popular DC characters at the beach, showing some skin. In addition, many significant characters from DC Comics will be seeing huge milestones in addition to the new covers making waves. For example, Wonder Woman will be seeing her 800th issue milestone in June alongside The Flash. These are major achievements for the popular DC characters, and it is only natural that they would be deserving of a day at the beach.
With that being said, there are seven variant covers featuring work from various artists while also featuring in a different DC series altogether. The variants feature images of Catwoman, Superman, Batman, Supergirl, and even Wonder Woman. Although it might be jarring to see some male characters showing some skin (since we only see them in skin-tight suits), it will also be an entertaining glimpse. So read ahead if you want to know where you can see your favourite heroes kicking back in the sun.
