Dark Knight Returns: The Last Crusade: John Romita, Jr. Discusses His New Dark Knight Comic

Nearly thirty years ago, Frank Miller introduces us to an older, far more wizened Batman late in his career. But the newest Dark Knight project, Dark Knight Returns: The Last Crusade, will take us back to over ten years before this classic work, when Batman was still actively fighting crime with his previous Robin, Jason Todd, at his side, revealing the previously untold story of how Jason met his end in Frank Miller’s Dark Knight universe and featuring the first appearance of Miller’s Joker since his death in The Dark Knight Returns.

A Convergence of Covers

With the release of today’s eleven new Convergence titles, we’ve reached the climactic final week of this unprecedented world-shattering—sorry, make that worlds-shattering comic book event.  With all of reality unraveling, it’ll fall on a collective of heroes from all eras and avenues of the DC Universe to do what they can to save our existence.

DC Sneak Peeks: Batman, Superman and Justice League

All month long we’ve been releasing sneak peeks of our June comics. You can look for most of them in the back of our Convergence titles and right here on DCComics.com.

These aren't excerpts from the June issues—these are original short stories that set up what awaits you next month. Enjoy!

Superman: New Power, New Printing!

Last week, SUPERMAN #38 revealed the Man of Steel’s new power—the Super Flare. Unlocked during a battle with the super-villain Ulysses, the Super Flare is a destructive, large-scale blast of intense heat capable of incinerating everything within a quarter mile. It also—at least so far—depletes Superman’s cells of solar energy, leaving him powerless for about a day.
