Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman Come to the Library of American Comics
The Classic Newspaper Adventures of DC’s Biggest Heroes Launch this July!
IDW’s Library of American Comics and DC Entertainment proudly announce the beginning of a new partnership to reprint some of the rarest DC Comics stories — the Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman newspaper strips.
“We’re thrilled to announce a comprehensive publishing program for these historic strips,” said Greg Goldstein, IDW President and COO. “The Library of American Comics is the premier home for archival newspaper strips and this new partnership with DC Entertainment further cements the imprint’s reputation as second to none.”
At the same time that Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman became the world’s most famous and recognizable superheroes in comic books in the 1940s and beyond, they also starred in runs of newspaper comic strips, most of which have not been seen since they first appeared.
Jim Lee outdoes himself with another stellar image of the romance between Superman and Wonder Woman.
DC Comics’ twitter profile (@DCComics) released the completed variant cover to Justice League #12 this afternoon. The image depicts the Superman and Wonder Woman in an affectionate side-by-side embrace as they hover over the planet Earth. The sun in the background creates a halo over their heads of biblical proportions.
Here are the August 2012 Justice League Group solicitations courtesy of DC Comics.
