Acclaimed artist Jae Lee was part of DC Comics‘ initial “Batman/Superman” creative team when the series launched earlier this year, and CBR News can exclusively reveal he’s back with writer Greg Pak on the book with February’s #8, along with a first look at the cover for March’s issue #9. Previously, Kenneth Rocafort was solicited as the artist for issue #8.
Here’s DC’s official solicitation text for the issue, part of the “First Contact” crossover with fellow ongoing series “Worlds’ Finest,”: “‘First Contact’ continues from last month’s explosive ‘Worlds’ Finest” #20 in part three of the four-part event that pits Batman, Superman, Huntress and Power Girl against a massive new threat in the DC Universe! As Kaizan Gamorra unleashes the means to take down Superman an unbelievable discovery is made that will have major repercussions in 2014!”
“Batman/Superman” #9 is scheduled for release on March 5, 2014. Lee is also one of multiple artists solicited to contribute to the “Batman/Superman Annual” #1, slated out on Jan. 29, 2014.
