As "Before Watchmen" continues its road to release this July, DC Comics has slowly released new details for the series, which most recently two new variant covers posted on Bloody Disgusting. The two newly revealed variants for Darwyn Cooke's "Minutemen" #1 are by Michael Golden, featuring the entire team roster, and by Jim Lee and Scott Williams featuring Hooded Justice in the criminal line-up series of variants running throughout all the "Before Watchmen" books.

“The idea was to do one character per cover, and it’s a police line-up so they’re all against the height chart,” Lee said of his variant covers at WonderCon 2012. “They’re vigilantes in a lot of respect to it made sense to do the line up.”
