DC's Batman Double Feature
By Brian Jacks


The team of writer Jeph Loeb and artists Jim Lee & Scott Williams has shot BATMAN to the top of Diamond Comic Distributors' sales charts since issue #608 hit stores in October. Now, the "power of this creative team has been proven again as DC anticipates that BATMAN #609 will be sold out shortly," the publisher says.

The stories from these two issues -- the first two chapters of the 12-part storyline "Hush" -- will remain in print in the new BATMAN DOUBLE FEATURE (NOV025077). This special issue features a new cover by Lee & Williams as well as the covers to the first printings of BATMAN #608 and 609.

"As the "Hush" storyline continues, word continues to spread about the phenomenal work Jeph, Jim and Scott are doing,"says Bob Wayne, DC's VP Sales & Marketing. "The DOUBLE FEATURE will let those who missed out on the first few chapters of the story catch up without missing a beat."

"I'm especially appreciative of having this edition because this is the fourth opportunity to keep #608 on the rack," says Carl Bonasera of All American Comic Shops in Evergreen Park, IL. "That's counting original orders, reorders, second printing, and now this snazzy double shot. I look forward to continuing sales throughout this run."

"The more peoples' hands I can get those early issues into, the more I'll sell of the end of the story, "says John Riley of Grasshopper's Comics in Williston Park, NY. "It's much appreciated!"

Jim Williams, of Comic Heaven in Wiloughby, OH, says, "DC Comics is intelligent enough to see the need to reprint the books in order to help retailers meet the demand of their customers and act on it."

BATMAN DOUBLE FEATURE is a 48-page one-shot scheduled to be in stores on February 12 with a price of $3.95 U.S.

BATMAN #610 is still available for reorder.

The BATMAN BY JIM LEE POSTER is available for advance reorder and is scheduled to be in stores on February 26.

BATMAN #611 is solicited in the November issue of Previews and is scheduled to be in stores on January 22.

BATMAN #612 is solicited in the December issue of Previews and is scheduled to be in stores on February 26.

BATMAN #613 is solicited in the January issue of Previews and is scheduled to be in stores on March 26.
