DC Comics to Debut New ‘Batman/Superman’ Series

Batman Jae LeeDC Comics has broken the the news on USA Today, that long time Marvel Comics author Greg Pak will be making his DC debut a memorable one with the company’s two most famous superheroes in the upcoming ongoing series Batman/Superman, debuting in June. Pak, who’s career includes everything from Incredible Hulk to X-Treme X-Men, will be teaming the writer with artist Jae Lee (Inhumans, The Dark Tower).

“Working in comics, almost every project you do for DC or Marvel deals with these amazing characters that are so much fun to work with,” Pak says. “But, wow, Superman and Batman? That kind of lifts your hat and spins it around in the air a bit.

“It is a real thrill, and it’s particularly a thrill because we’re being given some real leeway to do some really important storytelling with these characters. It really defines some great things and to depict some really key moments for them.”

Bruce Wayne is new to putting on a cape and cowl and patrolling the streets of Gotham City, while Superman — when not in civilian mode as budding journalist Clark Kent — is a recently realized hero to the working class clad in jeans, cape and a spiffy, S-logo T-shirt. When the two run into each other, well, sparks fly. Some steely stares and maybe a few punches, too.

“We’ve been given the incredible opportunity to show these two icons meeting for the first time at this very early and raw stage in their careers,” Pak says. “Neither one of them has ever heard of the other guy.”
