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.

Featuring a story too big for the regular monthly series, TEEN TITANS ANNUAL #1 launches the first set of giant-sized annuals from DC COMICS-THE NEW 52. The story is written by Scott Lobdell (TEEN TITANS, SUPERBOY, RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS) and Tom Defalco (LEGION LOST), with art by TEEN TITANS’ regular illustrator, Brett Booth. Coming this May, the expansive crossover story weaves through several ongoing series – including TEEN TITANS, SUPERBOY and LEGION LOST – and pits the heroes against one another in a chamber of horrors far beneath the surface of Antarctica.
