Written by Rob Williams and drawn by no less than Jim Lee and Philip Tan, this newest version of the villains-as-heroes tale features much of the same lineup as the film and a closer tie to the greater DC Universe.
DC Entertainment is excited to announce that fans will have a chance to meet Co-Publisher Jim Lee and highly acclaimed artists Bernard Chang (Batman Beyond) and Brian Buccellato (Detective Comics) at their signings for the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books on April 9 and 10 at the University of Southern California.
