Here’s a look at the official press release from Aspen Comics:
Aspen Comics is pleased to announce a unique partnership with DC Comics for a run of co-branded AspenStore.com exclusive DC Comics variant covers featuring both publishers’ signature cover dressing, beginning with DC’s Batman #1 on June 15th, and more co-branded covers to be revealed soon.
These new AspenStore.com exclusive DC Comics Rebirth covers continue an illustrious collaborative history between the two publishers, including 2004’s Superman: Godfall mini-series presented by Aspen, Michael Turner’s best-selling “Return of Supergirl” six-issue run within the pages of Superman/Batman, a run of covers on The Justice League of America and The Flash, an Eisner-nominated run of covers on DC’s critically-acclaimed Identity Crisis mini-series and many others.
The series of Aspen Comics exclusive covers begins with DC’s Batman #1 on June 15th and is only available on www.AspenStore.com.
Batman #1 is written by Tom King with art by David Finch, Matt “Batt” Banning and Jordie Bellaire. Solicitation copy for the issue reads: “I AM GOTHAM” Chapter One. No one has ever stopped the Caped Crusader. Not The Joker. Not Two-Face. Not even the entire Justice League. But how does Batman confront a new hero who wants to save the city from the Dark Knight?
Aspen also plans to make limited quantities of DC’s Batman #1 available for purchase beginning this June at Denver Comic Con on June 17-19th and Comic Con International: San Diego on July 21-24th exclusively at the Aspen Comics Booths.
