The New Dr Seuss-Style Cover For Ice Cream Man #20

When the allegations regarding comic book writer and artist Cameron Stewart came to light, Bleeding Cool reported that DC Comics had dropped Stewart from an upcoming project and Martin Morazzo posted that the creative team of Ice Cream Man were switching Cameron's intended variant cover from Ice Cream Man #20 for another. Well, it seems Martin decided to do it himself, with fellow series artist Chris O'Halloran. They had to be quick, so went for a simple Dr Seuss-style choice…

And here's the bumf for the series as a whole:

Chocolate, vanilla, existential horror, drug addiction, musical fantasy…there's a flavor for everyone's misery. ICE CREAM MAN is a genre-defying comic book series featuring disparate 'one-shot' tales of sorrow, wonder, and redemption. Each installment features its own cast of strange characters, dealing with their own special sundae of suffering. And on the periphery of all of them, like the twinkly music of his colorful truck, is the Ice Cream Man-a weaver of stories, a purveyor of sweet treats. Friend. Foe. God. Demon. The man who, with a snap of his fingers-lickety split!-can change the course of your life forever. Written by W. MAXWELL PRINCE (ONE WEEK IN THE LIBRARY), with art by MARTÍN MORAZZO (GREAT PACIFIC) and CHRIS O'HALLORAN (GENERATION GONE).
