"Superman/Batman" #8 goes back to press again

Official Press Release

The excitement over SUPERMAN/BATMAN #8 continues as DC Comics goes back to press for a third printing of this sold-out issue. This issue features the first chapter of the storyline "The Supergirl From Krypton," written by Jeph Loeb with art and cover by Michael Turner.

This third printing is scheduled to arrive in stores on May 26, and features a third cover by Turner and Peter Steigerwald.

"This is amazing," says Turner. "I am thrilled that people like this book. Jeph, Peter and I are having so much fun. I've had a blast working with DC and everyone here at Aspen. I'd like to give a special thanks to Dan DiDio (VP - Editorial), Eddie Berganza (Group Editor), and Tom Palmer, Jr. (Associate Editor) for their help on these books. We may have to do this again!"

"The first two printings of this issue sold out extremely quickly," says Bob Wayne, DC's VP - Sales & Marketing. "From the look of things, demand for this issue hasn't let up at all, so we're happy to give retailers more copies to sell."
