It was announced that DC Comics will publish new deluxe editions for graphic novels, including Superman: Birthright, Batman: The Long Haunted Halloween Knight, Batman: Curse of the White Knight, The Death of Superman, and more.
As specific graphic novels and comic book series gain notoriety and commemorate anniversaries of their original release, DC has been known to celebrate with new editions. The next batch of deluxe editions includes some surprising titles, but each holds a significant place in DC’s comic book history. The next line of graphic novels will appeal to both avid collectors and more casual readers, especially with Batman and Superman fans who enjoy their collective history.
According to Comic Book Wire, DC will release several deluxe editions throughout the year, including Superman: Birthright – The Deluxe Edition, Harley Quinn: 30 Years of the Handmaiden of Mischief – The Deluxe Edition, Batman: The Haunted Long Knight Halloween – The Deluxe Edition, Batman: Curse of the Knight white – The deluxe edition, and Death of Superman 30th Anniversary – Deluxe Edition. Each graphic novel features a distinct version of the titular characters, from fan-favorite creators such as Mark Waid, Jeph Loeb, Tim Sale, Sean Murphy and many more. The titles are mostly about DC’s biggest names: Superman, Batman, and Harley Quinn, who has become virtually the third-most popular DC Trinity member. 30 years of mischief maid should include a wide selection of Harley stories throughout its comic book history, such as The Batman Adventures #12, Detective Comics #831, The Batman and Robin Adventures #18, Harley Quinn 30th Anniversary Special #1, and much more. Its release is scheduled for September 6.
The new print of Batman: Curse of the White Knight is the second luxury version of the series, because White knight had previously received a deluxe edition. Fans can likely expect the rest of Sean Murphy’s Black Label series to receive new prints with bonus material in the future. It is slated for release on September 27. Likewise, the emblematic of Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale Batman: The Long Haunted Halloween Knight will collect a variety of Batman specials from the duo released after the main storyline, such as Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight Halloween Special #1, Batman: Madness – A Legends of the Dark Knight Halloween Special #1, and Batman: ghosts, a legend of darkness #1. It is slated for release on October 4, coinciding with the Halloween season.
Meanwhile, Death of Superman will primarily be a reprint, but will also include bonus material such as Newstime: The Life and Death of Superman. It is due out on December 6. Likewise, considered one of the most important Superman stories, Birthright new edition will begin on December 13. With the news that writer Mark Waid will write a Superman: birthright sequel mini-series, it’s the perfect time for the origin story to get a new print. The often underrated tale of Clark Kent’s upbringing in Smallville and the journey to becoming Superman deserves to grow in its readership. Among Superman fans, he is considered one of the best modern portrayals. While the creators tried to reinvent Superman Time and time again, Waid has proven that the Man of Steel doesn’t need to change drastically over time.
