Here’s a round up of the exclusive previews from this week’s DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 releases, on sale Wednesday.
BATMAN #5 has sold out, and will be going back to press for its second printing. From the critically acclaimed, fan-favorite creative team of writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo, the issue pits Batman against himself; trapped in a deadly maze deep beneath Gotham City, he must fight just to stay sane in the Owls’ nightmarish labyrinth. But turnabout is fair play, and this is just prelude to the Bat-tle royale that’s coming in the “Night of the Owls” crossover event this May. The second printing of BATMAN #5 will be on sale in comic book stores on March 7, 2012.
Coming this May, BATMAN ANNUAL #1 features the hotly anticipated introduction of Mr. Freeze into DC COMICS-THE NEW 52. But what is the icy villain’s role in the machinations of the sinister Court of Owls and their plot to control Gotham City? Is he friend or foe, ally or enemy?
Released in comic book stores last week, BATMAN: GATES OF GOTHAM will be in bookstores everywhere beginning tomorrow. Collected in its entirety for the first time, the critically acclaimed miniseries is written by fan-favorite Gotham scribes Scott Snyder (BATMAN) and Kyle Higgins (NIGHTWING).
Friendless and alone, the Dark Knight is currently under attack by the Court of Owls in BATMAN – but the “Night of the Owls” is coming, and Batman will turn the tables on the sinister secret society.

BATMAN #4 has sold out, and will be going back to press for its second printing.
