Fans have seen the slap that resonated across twitter, announcing that Batman/Superman: World’s Finest Issue #1 from writer Mark Waid and artist Dan Mora is coming March 15, 2022.
Two of the greatest Super Heroes the world has ever known are together again in an epic new series. In the not-too-distant past, Superman’s powers are super-charged from a devastating chemical attack by the villain Metallo…and the only ally that the ultra-powerful Man of Tomorrow can turn to in this turbulent hour is Gotham City’s own Caped Crusader: Batman. A nearly fatal burst of power drives Bruce Wayne to his own extreme measures to help his friend, driving him to seek the Doom Patrol’s help.
Launching with an incredible collection of covers, including a fun jaunt with comedian Jerry Seinfeld, this is a series that longtime fans of the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight won’t want to miss!

Continuing from the events of Nubia and the Amazons, (on shelves now, at your local comic shop!), the dangers of Doom’s Doorway have found their way to Man’s World and garnered the attention of not one, but all three Amazonian tribes. The Bana-Mighdall consider it to be a sign of weakness in the current regime and have decided to return to the shores of Themyscira to stake their claim over the island. Little do they know, the Esquecida are not far behind, looking for help to combat the evil unleashed. Tempers rise and swords are brandished as the women argue about the best course of action—leading to one of the most famous Amazon traditions: the Contest.
