2014 marks Batman's 75th anniversary, and despite his age he's currently the most popular character in comic books, so who better to grace the 2014 Comic-Con International: San Diego Souvenir Book—a 224-page full-color trade paperback given free to all Comic-Con attendees (while supplies last, of course).
And who better to draw it in 2014 than DC co-publisher Jim Lee, arguably the most popular Batman artist since Frank Miller. The cover is penciled and inked by Lee (a rarity for the artist) with colors by Alex Sinclair.
The image will also appear as a T-shirt available at the con.
According to Comic-Con, this year's Souvenir Book features a long section devoted to the Batman, and includes articles by Michael Uslan (executive producer of all the Batman films since 1989), Paul Levitz (writer/editor and former DC Comics president and publisher), Marc Tyler Nobleman (author of Bill the Wonder Boy: The Secret Co-creator of Batman), Todd Klein (Eisner Award-winning letterer and designer), and more.
The book also features salutes to Marvel Comics’ 75th anniversary, Daredevil’s 50th, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ 30th, Usagi Yojimbo’s 30th, Hellboy’s 20th, and more.
