DC is celebrating March 8's International Women's Day all March long with a series of variant covers featuring some of the most famous women in the DC Universe from a variety of up-and-coming women artists.

On the character side, some of the heroes and villains taking the spotlight on the covers include Nubia, Mary Marvel, and of course Wonder Woman. There's also a cover featuring several of the women of Wildstorm, and a particularly cute variant featuring Ma Kent receiving her very own Superman family jacket from Kal-El and the gang.
