As I mentioned last week on the original post, these are not most inspired variant covers ever designed, not even by graphic design standards. Ironically it did inspire me to create a Chip Kidd variant cover of my own, especially since there are not enough women fronting any of the Earth-2 ones other than Jenny-Lynn Hayden (Jade) for Infinity Inc. It took all but five minutes to put together in photoshop, having spent more time looking for the right font and editing the DC logo than making the cover itself.

I realise I may be biased, but I honestly like my variant cover for Detective Comics better:
