In order to take down his most nefarious adversary yet, the Caped Crusader enlists some help from the Man of Steel as the World’s Finest re-team in a new monthly title Batman/Superman #1 launching this summer!

The DC universe has been plagued with conspiracy theories, attacks from dark dimensions and all-consuming horrors this season, and soon it will be revealed that at the center of one of these dastardly plots in none other than a villain the Dark Knight Detective may not be able to stop on his own. Since his introduction into the prime universe of continuity the Batman Who Laughs, the corrupted alternate-earth version of our own Batman has been determined to tear down everything Bruce Wayne has built in his quest for justice against the criminal underworld.

To the contrary, the Batman Who Laughs has given in to his darker inclinations and come to the “proper” realization that the only way to win the war is to give in — surrender to your darkest desires and reign chaos. Working from the shadows the terrifying villain has been slowly building a campaign to destroy the Caped Crusader and everyone that he holds close, and in the upcoming brand new monthly title Batman/Superman #1 the two most prominent heroes in the DC universe will combine their efforts to stop the fiend from setting off his diabolical scheme.

The villain’s plan is simple: turn everyone on the planet into the darkest reflections of themselves and then turn them loose on The Batman! The new monthly story is written by Joshua Williamson with art from David Marquez and takes up right where DC’s The Batman Who Laughs own limited series left off. Williamson and Marquez will have this Dynamic Duo following the clues deep into the depths of Gotham City, uncover just how dangerous the threat to their friends is and try to solve the mystery of the Secret Six.

Check out a sneak preview of the upcoming series Batman/Superman here:

Batman/Superman #1 will go public on August 14, 2019, and is written by Joshua Williamson and illustrated by David Marquez and will be published monthly.
