Below is the original solicitation for the comic:

However, DC made an error: the solicitation, the cover story logo ("Year of the Villain - Dark Gifts") on both editions and also the cover art on the regular edition no longer matched the story inside. Note that a similar error was also made on Superman #14.

A recall notice was issued:

Retailers, please be advised that DC will provide replacement copies of Supergirl #33 and SUPERGIRL #33.

Due to advance production schedules, the covers of both issues ultimately did not reflect the contents of the stories. Replacement copies with new covers will be provided at no cost to retailers.

Retailers who receive copies of Supergirl #33 main and variant editions (JUN190540 - JUN190541) or SUPERGIRL #33 main and variant editions (JUN190538 - JUN190539) are asked to destroy them when they arrive in stores.

The replacement copies of the SUPERGIRL #33 main edition will have a new cover by Kevin Maguire. This, as well as the variant edition replacment copies, are scheduled to arrive in stores on September 4 without "Year of the Villain" branding on the covers. Retailers will be credited for these issues on their August 21 invoices.
