They were all done by DC through Panini,  but the Batman/Superman # 7 (center) originally was a French Variant. Although this reprint is a cover swipe from that issue done now in foil , and has an interior reprint of Batman #1, where the original was Batman/Superman #7 in French and Different Back cover. Still all are awesome examples of Dell'otto cover art.

There is a German version of the center one too...

I'm just not sure if that's considered a "reprint" of the French version of the same cover. (shrug)

 from what I have found , so far the 2005 seems to be the earliest use of this cover and it is Panini and German. Although both of these German editions appear to be more like TPB and thicker (almost 1/2") the French Variant is a little less than 1/4" and has glued cover like slim tpb or prestige , and the newest is a foil cover modern . Thank you for pointing that out! I learned this art/cover had been used more times than I realized.

No problem.  Great research! Thanks for doing the legwork that I was too lazy to do.  :angel:

It's all good. When you said it I remembered seeing other versions as well, but never really look at the complete content and print date. I have always liked some of the foreign Variants.  Unfortunately I only speak English so for me these were seeing the difference art and production companies and methods that got my attention.  I have noticed several including this that I collected for the cover art , and didn't think to actually fully research it. Just following that age old, " Collect what you like and you can't go wrong.. maybe broke, but not wrong.." and on that note will get the thread back on track with another amazing foreign Dell'otto Variant it really takes a few different angles to capture the awesomeness of the way they did the multiple layers of foil for this cover!

Got this in the mail yesterday. My favorite Dell'Otto cover:x

I love this one too.  Dell'otto's use of negative space and light is some of the best in the business right now, and this is a prime example of that.  :cloud9:

Did Dell’Otto’s Action Comics 1015 variant with Supes get canned!?
