DC Presents Metal Men #1 Recalled Interior Comparison #3

Diamond issued the following recall notice:

Retailers, please note that the copies of DC COMICS PRESENTS: METAL MEN #1 (MAY110236) scheduled to arrive in stores on July 20 were printed incorrectly. DC Comics asks retailers to destroy these copies on receipt. You will be credited for these copies July 27 invoices. Retailers will receive replacement copies on August 3 and will be billed for these copies on that week's invoice. New copies may be distinguished by the recolored logo on the cover.

Strangely, there does not seem to be a "recolored logo" on covers seen on auction and other websites so maybe this was not in fact done on the replacement copies.

Note that the comparisons here are with the digital copy and, if we get a copy of a replacement edition, we will add a side-by-side comparison of the two printed versions here.
