I'm sure most of you have heard that DC will be publishing this brand new epic series in conjunction with the launch of the DCUO MMORPG. Check out the wraparound cover for #1, illustrated by Ed Benes:



The epic comic book series will run for 26 issues and will be bi-weekly. Tony Bedard and Marv Wolfman to write and Howard Porter on pencils. I personally don't mind getting it but 26 issues is just too long for me. I would have preferred if it was kept to a maximum of 12 monthly issues, just like what they did with 'Justice'.

What do you guys think?

I'm looking forward to this title - especially the fact its going to run in conjunction with the game. I think I heard they will be planting plots in here that will affect the game and visa versa...

The cover is amazing but your right the fact its bi-weekly is another strain on the wallet. I've said this before, with all the new Batman titles, you've got to drop other. I might flick through it each week and if it Gotham / Batman centric I'll pick it up.

I love it! Since it runs in conjunction with the game, and possibly even includes in-game characters and player-created heroes, I'm totally into it. I don't think it'd work as well as a monthly, since it's meant to be a game companion book. In fact, I'm kinda disappointed it's only lasting 26 issues (though I'm sure if it and the game sells well enough, they'll keep it going). DCUO Legends #0 is pretty good, and that cover looks awesome, so I'm excited!

Yeah, it's a pre-order bonus with DCUO. I pre-ordered it at Gamestop, and they gave me a copy of DCUO Legends #0.

Grrr... we've got no pre-order over here in the UK yet. I'm just going to have to wait.

That's strange that they haven't added any pre-orders except for North America yet...I assume it's because it's not coming out for at least 4-5 months, but still. If they don't have it by the middle of next week when I'm done with school, I'll scan it up for you!

No, I don't think so...it's two other random artists. No big names, except for the writers, Bedard and Wolfman (who wrote the game).

I think Howard Porter is a good name. It is interesting this is one of the first signs of DCE and DC Comics syncing up this and Aqualad in Brightest Day and Young Justice and some could say Judd Winick writing Under The Red Hood and Lost Days makes me wonder if we will see more comics tie in with other media projects they always have done it but now it seems they may get bigger.

I think your right - especially when they want to incorporate events into the game. They've got the perfect platform to aplify the game with the comics.
