The first issue of DC UNIVERSE ONLINE LEGENDS, the official comic book tie-in to the hit massive multiplayer online action game, hits comic shops and the DC Digital Online Store today. Picking up where the game's trailer left off, the villainous Lex Luthor's made a deal with the evil alien Brainiac that's given him the means of finally killing Superman - but he's doomed all of humanity in the process. DC Comics Co-Publisher, legendary comic book artist and DC Universe Online Executive Creative Director Jim Lee had this to say about the new bi-weekly Legends comic book series:
"With DC Universe Online, we've managed to create a version of the DC Universe that fully captures the superhero experience, and lends itself to a virtually endless number of possible storylines and scenarios for each individual player. The Legends comic is another way for us to keep expanding the borders of that world, and attract new comic readers who'd like to dive even further into the DC Universe as they're playing the game."Check out a preview of the first issue we posted here. Digital comics readers will get a special digital variant covers on their first six issues, all featuring art from Blur Studios - the same studio behind the thrilling DC Universe Online cinematic trailer!
