G’nort’s Illustrated Swimsuit Edition is the perfect platform for showcasing the talents of DC Comics’ finest artists. It’s easy to assume that superheroes from DC Comics would flaunt their perfect beach bodies at every opportunity. The 48-page one-shot publication features a compilation of the most impressive swimsuit covers from recent years of DC Comics. DC Comics variant covers showcase a more relatable and human side of their heroes, depicting them in realistic swimwear and poses. In contrast, Marvel Swimsuit Specials from the early 90s were notorious for their hyper-sexualized portrayal of Marvel characters.
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. Whatever the case, get ready to see him in his newest role as host and proprietor of this very special swimsuit edition comic! Join our favorite fuzzball as he showcases some of DC’s best swimsuit covers and most swim-tacular stories! From the Flash in Speed Force Racing Briefs to Batman in a bat(hing) suit, this very special one-shot is summer fun from (bikini) top to (bikini) bottom.
Featuring 48 pages of art by Amanda Conner, Paul Pelletier, Nicola Scott, Mikel Janín, Jeff Dékal, Daniel Sampere, Gleb Melnikov, Derrick Chew, Stanley “Artgerm” Lau, Emanuela Lupacchino, Joëlle Jones, Megan Huang, Terry Dodson, Babs Tarr, Pete Woods, Joe Quinones, Hélène Lenoble, Otto Schmidt, Michael Allred, Sweeney Boo, David Talaski, Jenny Frison, and others, G’nort’s Illustrated Swimsuit Edition will publish on August 29, 2023, available in comic book shops and participating digital retailers.
