Greg Pak is heading to DC Comics... and he has the honor of writing two of the publisher's most iconic heroes in the same book! He'll be the brains behind the upcoming ongoing BATMAN/SUPERMAN and Jae Lee will illustrate. Speaking with USA Today, Pak is clearly beyond elated over the opportunity.
Working in comics, almost every project you do for DC or Marvel deals with these amazing characters that are so much fun to work with," Pak says. "But, wow, Superman and Batman? That kind of lifts your hat and spins it around in the air a bit.
BATMAN/SUPERMAN will take place in the past when both characters are new at being heroes. Additionally, this series will reveal the first encounter between the two in New 52 history. The writer also says readers will be "very pleasantly excited" when we find out what the threat to both leads will be. Furthermore, he claims the series will have a lasting impact on the new continuity.

Batman/Superman is a really exciting place to discover who these guys are, and the things we're going to discover particularly in this first story arc will have ramifications later on down the line," he adds. "We're going to start in the past but it'll reverberate through. It'll be big and crazy and tons of fun.
BATMAN/SUPERMAN will debut this June. Viners, does the tag team of Pak and Lee make this a must read for you? Share your thoughts below.
