Batman is to team-up with the paranormal investigator Dylan Dog in a limited series.
The crossover is a collaboration between DC Comics and Italian publisher Sergio Bonelli Editore. The publisher RW Edizioni- who publishes DC Comics in Italy-will release the mini-series.
Here is SBE’s Editor in Chief of Editorial Strategy, Michele Masiero, on the crossover event.
Everyone at Sergio Bonelli Editore is thrilled to be part of an event of this magnitude. Our creative imaginations have been racing since the moment this kicked off with our friends at DC and RW.
Additionally, RW Edizioni is similarly pumped for the comic team-up. Here’s CEO of RW Pasquale Saviano on collaborating with DC.
We are proud to help make this historic project possible and to be part of it. We are looking forward to working with SBE and DC to bring Italian readers the most exciting stories that they never expected.
Dylan Dog is a popular Italian comic book character who has mystical adventures. He is a paranormal detective who regularly faces wizards, warlocks, and monsters.
Meanwhile, details of the actual plot of the crossover are minimal. However, fans can expect to see Batman and Dylan Dog battle the Joker and Xabaras.
The mini-series will start with an issue #0. Writer Roberto Recchioni and artists Gigi Cavenago and Werther Dell’Edera are the creative team on the book and the initial issue will feature two variant covers. One features Batman and Dylan Dog and the other highlights the villains.
There’s no word on whether the crossover will be published in America, but the first issue of the mini-series will premiere later this year.
