The next two weeks are going to be chock full of news, with THE SOURCE providing a glimpse of the DCU in 2011 and GRAPHIC CONTENT teasing highlights from Vertigo in 2011. Expect high profile announcements, exclusive previews and some definite surprises along the way. We think it’s a great way to kick off the New Year right—and to thank you, the fans, for the enthusiasm and passion you have for our creators, our characters and the books we publish.
And it all starts today with BATMAN 101.
It’s simple, really: 101 issues of Batman on sale today, 1/01/11.
For one day, you could download issues #600-700 available for $.99 each at the DC Comics Digital Store, the DC Comics App, and the ComiXology App. BATMAN 101 provides a crash course in some of the greatest Batman stories ever published: “Hush”, “Broken City”, “Under the Red Hood”, “Batman and Son”, and “BATMAN: R.I.P.” to name a few. That means stories by amazing creators like Brian Azzarello, Tony S. Daniel, Geoff Johns, Andy Kubert, Jim Lee, Jeph Loeb, Grant Morrison, Dustin Nguyen, Eduardo Risso, James Robinson, Bill Willingham and Judd Winick.
Some of you might remember our “Blackest Friday” sale. That promotion proved so popular that Hank Kanalz and our digital team wanted to kick off 2011 with another fun promotion. And just like with “Blackest Friday”, these issues will return to their regular price point tomorrow. So start downloading now, because the sale ends at 11 PM Eastern Standard Time. Then come back to THE SOURCE on Monday for a look at what the future holds for the DCU in 2011.
Happy New Year, SOURCE readers.
