Artists and retailers team up to celebrate DC Comics-The New 52

This Fall, retailers across North America will be celebrating DC Comics-The New 52 with the DC Comics-The New 52 Art Tour! Showcasing the creative process behind such titles as WONDER WOMAN, THE FLASH, ACTION COMICS, GREEN LANTERN, SWAMP THING and BATWOMAN retailers will be hosting events with DC Comics-The New 52 artists. Framed art will be on display to illustrate the artists’ process—from script, to pencils, to inks, to the final colored and lettered page. And in many instances, art from other DC Comics-The New 52 #1s will be on display in a gallery type atmosphere. The talent will be on hand to discuss their work and sign copies of their DC Comics-The New 52 series.  It’s an exclusive opportunity to meet the artists working on some of the most talked about comic books in ages. So whether you’re a comic book fan or art aficionado, come out and celebrate art, superheroes and DC Comics-The New 52 at an event near you.
