A new Batman/Superman team-up book will be coming in June from DC Comics. Written by Greg Pak and featuring art by Jae Lee, the book will be Pak’s debut DC Comic book. Lee comes fresh from his latest work with the Before Watchmen book Ozymandias.
Pak gave some insider information as to where the book will fit in the overall DC timeline to Newsarama: “So this story begins around the time of Morrison’s ‘Action #1,’ when both of these men are young and wild and dangerous. Anything can happen. They’ve never even heard of each other before—never even heard the word ‘super-hero.’”
This is an interesting place to pick for their timeline. When the Justice League comic first came out, it was highly promoted by DC within the same context—that it was first time the characters met and that they had never heard the word “super-hero” before. Given that Superman has been around for about five years, and Batman has been around for at least six or seven, fans must wonder where the overall timeline for all these events must be.
All that any fan can do would be to get the first issue when it debuts in June to get all the details.
