As the writer lucky enough to have assigned The Batman Who Laughs as a review title, I’m really excited about the series that will be spinning out of it. Today DC Comics revealed a great Batman/Superman #1 Sneak Peek!
Up in the sky, in the dark of the night, trust no one—for the Secret Six 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.
Check out a sneak preview of the upcoming series! #Batman/Superman
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 with cover art by Marquez and Alejandro Sánchez.
What did you think of this shocking sneak peek? Did the revelation of the Batson Who Laughs (sorry) send chills down your spine too? What happens if he says the magic word?!?
