DC has just announced the release of eight new variant covers this May, as a way to showcase and celebrate Asian American & Pacific Island (AAPI) Heritage Month. The covers will be drawn by a number of talented artists with Asian backgrounds, including Bernard Chang, Crystal Kung, and Marcio Takara.
