DC Swimsuit Special Announces Centerfold Artists, Reveals Back Cover

DC‘s G’nort’s Illustrated Swimsuit Edition has revealed the artists behind the centerfolds that will grace the upcoming swimsuit special.

Per DC, each copy of the G’nort’s Illustrated Swimsuit Edition will come with one of three randomly inserted centerfolds, distributed in equal quantities. The first centerfold features Poison Ivy and comes from artist Jen Bartel. The second features both Nightwing and Barbara Gordon, and comes from the duo of Jorge Jiménez and Alejandro Sánchez. The third and final centerfold comes from artist Simon Bisley and stars G’nort himself. DC will reveal the centerfolds themselves at a later date.

In the meantime, the publisher has also revealed artist J. Scott Campbell‘s back cover for the G’nort’s Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. The back cover is actually the Gotham Magazine cover Bruce Wayne can be seen holding in front of his face on Campbell and Tanya Lehoux’s variant cover for the swimsuit special itself.

The G’nort’s Illustrated Swimsuit Edition features a main cover by Vasco Georgiev. In addition to Campbell and Lehoux’s variant, it also features a variant cover by Adam Hughes and a 1:25 variant cover by Pablo Villalobos. All four of these covers will be accompanied by Campbell’s back cover.
