Superman/Batman #20

June 15, 2005: “Superman/Batman #20” Sells Out at DC Comics

SUPERMAN/BATMAN #20, the first chapter of the 6-part "With a Vengeance" storyline, has sold out at DC Comics less than a week after arriving in stores on June 1. This fast-paced adventure reunites SUPERMAN/BATMAN writer Jeph Loeb with the series original art team of Ed McGuinness & Dexter Vines.

"This feels like the equivalent of having the #1 movie in the country," says Loeb. "SUPERMAN/BATMAN has consistently been a top seller, and that's because our readers and retailers have been incredibly loyal. None of this success would be possible without the art team responsible for launching S/B, Ed 'MC2' McGuinness and Dexter Vines. It is their kinetic energy that makes this one of the most fun reads this summer, and at the end of the day, that's what SUPERMAN/BATMAN has always been about: the joy of comics!"

Loeb adds, "This is the start of 'With a Vengeance,' and apparently it's taking the title seriously. There are lots of guest stars still to come, including some you will never believe would appear in a mainstream DC comic - so let the guessing begin!"

"SUPERMAN/BATMAN continues to be a very strong seller for DC," says Bob Wayne, DC's VP - Sales. "Retailers should check their orders on the coming issues to be sure they will have enough copies on hand."
