DC Comics Put James Gunn/DC Studios Titles Back Into Print
DC Comics collections have been selling out as a direct result of James Gunn, Peter Safran and DC Studios' announcements. Now they're back.
Bleeding Cool has been looking at how DC Comics collections have been selling out as a direct result of James Gunn, Peter Safran and DC Studios' announcements regarding their Chapter One: Monsters And Gods TV shows and movies. From Booster Gold, to Supergirl: Woman Of Tomorrow, to Batman & Son, to All Star Superman, to The Authority, to Creature Commandos. James Gunn himself addressed a previous Bleeding Cool article directly, over the sellouts being enjoyed by The Authority Book One (and people selling it for $300) by stating the following;
And so it has now come to pass. DC Comics has announced 2023 editions of the following books: Creature Commandos, Batman And Son, Booster Gold: 52 Pick Up, The Authority Book One, Batman And Robin Vol 1: Batman Reborn, and Wonder Woman: Paradise Found.
The unexpected DC book in that list is Paradise Found, as the Wonder Woman movie was announced as being set in a Themyscria of the long past, before the birth of Diana, and so another book that Phil Jimenez worked on, Wonder Woman: Historia was tagged for relevance. But its name is close to Paradise Lost, the name of the new film. Might the graphic novel be seen as a sequel?
