DC's Next Cover Gimmick – 3D Covers

batman-3D-Comic-bookWe've had the WTF gatefold covers. We've had the Death Of The Family die-cut covers. What's next?

This morning, I was e-mailed one line from an unfamiliar source. "DC – 3D covers". Well, it was worth asking around. Most DC comics creators I spoke to had heard nothing. One confessed to have seen "3D covers" on a DC list somewhere. But one prominent DC artist confirmed that they are coming, but gave no further details.

So how? Do they mean embossed covers? Do they mean some kind of pop up cover? Or the kind of thing you need special glasses to read. Or even covers that transform with Augmented Reality into something that walks off the front of each comic?

I don't know. But if you do, tell me what you're planning…
