DC Comics have shared a first look preview of Batman/Superman #17, from bestselling writer Gene Luen Yang and award-winning artist Ivan Reis.

The issue arrives in comic book stores, and on participating digital platforms on Tuesday, April 27.


Best-selling writer Gene Luen Yang and award-winning artist Ivan Reis started their run on BATMAN/SUPERMAN with a bang in issue #16, weaving together not one, but TWO tales into one titanic issue. Yang and Reis wield the medium itself to tell the story of two universes, reminiscent of much-beloved DC film serials, colliding into one: Superman’s World of Tomorrow, and Batman’s World of the Night! The issue ended with the appearance of a brand-new villain, and a surprise that left readers’ jaws on the cutting room floor!


In this preview of BATMAN/SUPERMAN #17 (on sale Tuesday, April 27) Yang and Reis take the “World’s Finest” heroes down the rabbit hole to find an alternate reality where they’ve never met, a reality created by a mysterious new enemy!

In a world where Superman’s rocket never reached Earth, the Dark Knight and his sidekick discover a startling rift between dimensions. On the other side: A world where Martha Wayne survived, and Bruce never grew up to be Batman! Not only that, but a strange alien has emerged from the rift who’s faster than a locomotive and can leap tall buildings in a single bound… the Superman of Metropolis! When these worlds collide, the architects of this alternate history are revealed, and the only ones who can thwart their deadly experiments are the Batman and Superman of Earth-0! It’s a dynamic dual-world adventure!


BATMAN/SUPERMAN #17 arrives in comic book stores and on participating digital platforms on Tuesday, April 27. The issue features a main cover by Ivan Reis and Danny Miki, with a card stock variant cover by Rodolfo Migliari. The 32-page issue sells for $4.99, with the card stock variant available for $5.99 (check local stores for availability).
