Get a double-dose of “Batman/Superman” with two sneak previews
Scott Snyder and Jock’s crazybananas The Batman Who Laughs miniseries ended just this week, with a cliffhanger that’s hinting at some sinister things to come.
Thankfully, we won’t have to wait too long to see how the story affects the rest of the DC Universe, as Josh Williamson and Dave Marquez’s new Batman/Superman series launches in just a few short weeks. DC have graciously shared their first look at the first issue before, and have done so again to whet our appetites. Check it out below the release details at the end of the post.
But wait, there’s more! They’ve also shared some preview pages from the second issue, where Superman fights an infected Shazam. It’s… jeez, is it stunning. Dave Marquez and Alejandro Sánchez illustrate the crap out of the sequence, so check it out and enjoy.
Up in the sky, in the dark of the night, trust no one—for The Infected walk among us! Spinning out of the devastating events of DC’s THE BATMAN WHO LAUGHS, Superman and Batman join together once more in an all-new monthly comic book—and they’re facing a terrifying new threat that could strike from anywhere. Writer Joshua Williamson (THE FLASH, JUSTICE LEAGUE/SUICIDE SQUAD) and artist David Marquez (Civil War II, Avengers) are teaming-up in BATMAN/SUPERMAN, debuting on August 14, 2019.
To launch the new DC series, the first arc of BATMAN/SUPERMAN will follow the two titular heroes as they hunt down six infected heroes in the DCU—people revealed to be infected by the Batman Who Laughs with a deadly pathogen that violently transforms them into the evilest versions of themselves. The Dark Knight and the Man of Steel must journey into the depths of Gotham City to learn which of their fellow heroes has been transformed into the horrifying horseman of their most dangerous and deranged foe ever.
BATMAN/SUPERMAN #1, written by Joshua Williamson and illustrated by David Marquez, will hit shelves August 14, 2019. BATMAN/SUPERMAN #1 cover art is by Marquez and Alejandro Sánchez.
Batman/Superman #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on August 14.
