Batman/Superman #11's New Contents
We all know the story of Batman/Superman too well... Jae Lee given a good number of issues off, then the book goes into a crossover with another artist solicited, but no wait! Jae Lee should draw that! Oh, also, he should draw a good deal of the Annual too! What could go wrong?
Oh yeah... massive delays, out of order crossovers, inventory issues, and the same future issue being solicited three months in a row.
So, with that last point of what could go wrong, after the new arc was solicited for a third time, it was clear that this week's #10 wasn't the only issue that was going to have its contents changed, #11 being the obvious issue that would have to change as well... but no one said anything. Then this interview with Greg Pak popped up at Comic Vine, where he mentioned #11 would be something special... Being the cynic I am, I figured it was just going to be a Superman: Doomed tie-in.
And I was right. So you know what that means? Not buying or covering this one. Also... last minute crossover inclusions? Oh, DC.
