Comics: Batman/Superman Comic Returning for New 52

DC is finally bringing back one of the bigger books fans have been wondering if it will ever pop back up in the New 52. Batman/Superman has always been a reader favorite because of the interaction between DC's biggest heroes. USA Today broke the story that they plan on bringing it back this June with writer Greg Pak and artist Jae Lee. 

Greg Pak is widely known to be a Marvel boy doing World War Hulk and X-Men, but he couldn't pass up the offer to take on a ongoing series of Batman and Superman. Also, Jae Lee has been fantastic doing Inhumans art. So expect a great team up here. 

During the interview Pak stated "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." 

Pak is taking this book back to the very beginning. Back to when Superman became a hero for the first time rocking the jeans and t-shirt, than to the point where Batman and Superman meet for the first time. This is something big and sweet to finally see in the New 52. The first story arc will not only have a threat of evil, but these 2 guys figuring things out themselves. Interesting. 

"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?"Pak continues "These guys are going to have very different immediate impressions of each other than we're used to seeing with these characters."

Expect great things in this new comic kicking off this June. I'll for sure be there to pick it up!
