Featuring the incredible triptych design which combines the covers of JUSTICE LEAGUE #22, JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #6 and JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #22 by Ivan Reis, this COMIC-CON cover of JUSTICE LEAGE #22 is a wraparound gatefold that transitions from pencils to a striking color image featuring the major players of Trinity War.



This COMIC-CON cover features a minimalistic graphic design with a shadowy Batman in the background illustrated by fan favorite artist Greg Capullo. BATMAN #21, by acclaimed writer Scott Snyder, begins the highly anticipated storyline Zero Year in which Bruce Wayne’s early years are explored inDC Comics—The New 52.



The COMIC-CON cover for SUPERMAN UNCHAINED #1 features a bold image of Clark Kent becoming Superman in classic black and white illustrated by superstar artist Jim Lee and inker extraordinaire Scott Williams. This new series written by Scott Snyder and drawn by Lee challenges the Man of Steel in new ways and is an explosive beginning for his next adventure.
