Hello, DCComics.com and VertigoComics.com readers! Today’s edition of “5.2 Reasons” is so huge that we’re publishing it on both websites. Why? Well, in case you didn’t know, we’re currently in the midst of celebrating The Sandman on VertigoComics.com with a month-long promotion called “25 Days of Sandman,” and frankly, we wanted in on that bad boy.
THE WHEEL DEAL DEPT.
This November, welcome artist Brett Booth to BATMAN/SUPERMAN!
Beginning with issue #5, Booth joins writer Greg Pak to tell the ongoing adventures of the Dark Knight and Man of Steel. This launch issue starts as the ultimate video game, in which the players don’t realize that the characters they’re controlling are fighting in real life! Will it be game over for Batman? Meanwhile, Superman must deal with a treacherous new foe known as Metallo. But how are these two stories connected?
Comic book fans have a lot to look forward to today with New York Comic-Con kicking off in just a few hours. And just in time for the show, USA TODAY made a few announcements that’ll surely be the talk of the convention amongst fans of the Dark Knight!
Launching next spring, BATMAN ETERNAL is an all-new weekly series that comes to you from “showrunner” and BATMAN writer, Scott Snyder, along with writers James Tynion IV, John Layman, Ray Fawkes, and Tim Seeley, and artist Jason Fabok.
