Last month, we told you that in anticipation of “THE DARK KNIGHT RISES” opening in theaters and IMAX ® on Friday, July 20, comic book shops across North America will be distributing a free comic book to celebrate the film’s highly-anticipated arrival. More than 500,000 copies of this free BATMAN comic book will be handed out tomorrow on a first-come, first-served basis.


The free BATMAN: EARTH ONE Special Preview Edition comic book features the first chapter of the all-new graphic novel BATMAN: EARTH ONE written by Geoff Johns and illustrated by Gary Frank, as well as a preview of BATMAN, VOL. 1: THE COURT OF OWLS, the New York Times #1 best-selling graphic novel collection of the hit series written by Scott Snyder and illustrated by Greg Capullo.


So what are you waiting for? Head out to a comic book shop tomorrow and pick up your free comic book. And don’t forget to see “THE DARK KNIGHT RISES” when it opens in theaters and IMAX ® this weekend.
