Most comics these days have variant covers. Some have variant endings. Well, the G'Nort Illustrated Swimsuit Edition from DC Comics contains variant centrefolds, Poison Ivy by Jen Bartel, Nightwing and Barbara Gordon by Jorge Jiménez and Alejandro Sánchez, and G'nort himself, by Simon Bisley.

And DC Comics is suggesting you take photos of yourselves in bikins and trunks as well, saying "Thanks to the magic of comics, you can join in the beach blanket fun by recreating J. Scott Campbell & Tanya Lehoux's variant cover for yourself! Grab a friend, pull on your swimsuit, hit the beach with your copy of G'nort's Illustrated, and snap a photo—the back cover of G'nort's Illustrated Swimsuit Edition features the same "Gotham Magazine" artwork that Batman holds over his face on the front!" Why am I getting flashbacks to the cover shoot for Marvel's Trouble comic?

You may know G'nort as the bumbling Green Lantern who protects Space Sector 68. Then again, you may not know G'nort at all.
