We Can Never Go Home Heads To Costume-Altering Reprint For #3 (UPDATE)

While the amazingly valuable and popular Black Mask Studios comic We Can Never Go Home, written by Matthew Rosenberg and Patrick Kindlon, with pretty gorgeous art by Josh Hood is in reprints for issues 1, 2, and 3 in shops currently, Rosenberg let slip that there have been some changes to the reprint for Issue #3. Remember when we suggested that the mainstream superhero costumes that the team use for Maddie's changing room attempts at rendering herself more of a striking figure might get changed after the initial printing? Well, that is happening for the reprint edition, only we're getting even more interesting and identifiable costume jokes. In short, there's just more commentary and different costumes as an extra bonus to fans.

In the first printing of We Can Never Go Home #3, we had these…interesting costume choices that do make for a pretty hilarious and even meaningful visual gag:

I personally think the team should release a poster but they have a lot on their plate keeping up with the enormous demand for this comic.

UPDATE: This article previously stated that these variant costume pages would appear in the trade paperback of the first collection of the comic. That was mistaken. Rather, the varied costumes and dialogue will appear in the reprint to Issue #3 since #3 first print held the first set of costumes.
