I’m not at all certain what DC Comics is trying to do or accomplish and these covers (to my eye) seem printed right to left instead of left to right, which is a different issue. Check this out from Comics Beat:
Hold onto your monocles, because it’s time for DC comics to make their first attempt at getting you to drop them in shock. The first round of April ‘shock’ gatefold covers have been released via various locations – CBR, MTV Geek, DC’s Source blog, and so on – and I’ve collected them here. So far we have, I believe, six officially released covers from DC, as part of their (formerly WTF) April promotion.
