DC Announce NEW World's Finest Comic by Mark Waid and Dan Mora
The oldest team up book in DC is returning in 2022 with a brand new all-star creative team. Comics veteran and legend Mark Waid (Kingdom Come, The Flash, Daredevil, Justice League) will be teaming up with break-out artist Dan Mora (Detective Comics, Once & Future) to reunite Batman and Superman in their widely popular team up comic, World’s Finest.
Readers will be able to get a taste of what is to come for this newly announced comic run as the creative duo’s plans for the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel will first appear in the back-up story within Detective Comics #1050 which is due out on the 25th of January 2022.
Mora already teased a World’s Finest comic series a few months back releasing some of his artwork for the designs of Superman and Batman’s suits and they look fantastic! Many fans will be happy to know that Batman’s grey and blue suit with the yellow oval bat-symbol is returning which gives long-time DC fans a great bit of nostalgia.
