By Alex Nagorski Monday, June 24th, 2013

Welcome back for another installment of Preview Monday! This week we’re giving you exclusive first looks at BATMAN/SUPERMAN #1 and THE WAKE #2.

One strives to hold evil at bay by channeling our darkest fears, the other stands as a soaring champion of our brightest ambitions. The Dark Knight and the Man of Steel have gone from wary rivals to steadfast friends, but how did it all begin? BATMAN/SUPERMAN #1 gives us a glimpse of how these two titans came to know one another in the New 52! When a young Clark Kent arrives Gotham City in search of answers regarding a series of murders in Metropolis, he runs smack into Bruce Wayne himself. From the moment they meet, these two untested heroes’ approaches to protecting others could not be more different. BATMAN/SUPERMAN #1 launches the reader on an incredible journey that stretches from Gotham to Metropolis and worlds beyond. Featuring a story by celebrated writer Greg Pak and stunning artwork by Jae Lee and Ben Oliver, BATMAN/SUPERMAN #1 lands at your local comic shop this Wednesday.

Following the runaway success of THE WAKE #1, readers across the country have been waiting with baited breath for the next chapter in this incredible sci-fi/horror epic from the critically acclaimed creative team of writer Scott Snyder and artist Sean Murphy. After arriving at a “Ghost Rig” in the depths of the Arctic Circle, marine biologist Lee Archer finds herself face to face with an incredible discovery that challenges mankind’s understanding of itself. But when things go horribly wrong, this scientific safe haven will turn into a house of horrors at the bottom of the ocean! THE WAKE #2 surfaces in stores this Wednesday.
