Comic News:
Batman #612 Gets Second Cover
By Brian Jacks


Earlier this week, DC Comics announced the quick sellout of BATMAN #612, along with the second printing of this red-hot issue in which the creative team of Jeph Loeb, Jim Lee and Scott Williams pits the Dark Knight against the Man of Steel.

Now, DC reveals that BATMAN #612 - Second Printing will feature an alternate version of the issue's cover art, presenting the original pencils by Jim Lee without inking or coloring.

"Jim and I couldn't be happier that DC is once again fulfilling the needs of the marketplace," says Loeb "BATMAN is certainly exceeding everyone's expectations, since we keep selling out We had long discussions about doing a second printing, and DC saw that the fans and retailers liked the idea of a new cover image for the second printing. So, once again, we looked into our bag of tricks, and Jim produced his original pencils for the cover. It's gorgeous and really shows how much work Jim's putting into this story. Now, everyone who wants a copy of #612 can get one and enjoy the battle royale between Batman and Superman. And... we're only 5 issues in on a 12-part story - so you'd better believe there's more to come!"

"Although the timeframe on the second printing is tight, we're glad to distinguish it from the first printing," says Bob Wayne, DC's VP - Sales & Marketing. "It was Jeph's suggestion that we go with pencil art, giving readers a rare glimpse at Jim's extraordinary vision."

Please note that all backorders for the first printing of BATMAN #612 have been cancelled. Retailers wishing to receive BATMAN #612 - Second Printing should contact their DC Sales Rep or Diamond Comic Distributors Customer Service Representatives.
