Today it was announced over at USA Today that DC will be putting out a new ongoing Batman/Superman title starting in June. The new series is set to take place during the early years of both Batman and Superman, and will tell us the story of their first encounter. The creative team for this new title will be writer Greg Pak, and artist Jae Lee. Here are some quotes from Greg Pak about getting to work on this new title.
"It is a real thrill, and it's particularly a thrill because we're being given some real leeway to do some really important storytelling with these characters. It really defines some great things and to depict some really key moments for them."
"We've been given the incredible opportunity to show these two icons meeting for the first time at this very early and raw stage in their careers. Neither one of them has ever heard of the other guy."
"What would your reaction be if you saw a guy running around in a bat costume in the dead of night attacking people for the first time? And what would your reaction be if you met an alien who could crush steel in his bare hands for the first time? These guys are going to have very different immediate impressions of each other than we're used to seeing with these characters."
