Batman ‘89 and Superman ‘78 movie worlds turning into comic books

Feb 16, 2021


Like the idea of Michael Keaton reprising his role as Batman? Well now you can get more of his interpretation of the character, as well as Christopher Reeves’ portrayal of Superman.

DC Comics has announced there will be both a Batman ‘89 and a Superman ‘78 comic book series. Both series will “tell new stories set within these worlds” starting in July of this year.

Sam Hamm is writing Batman ’89 with Joe Quinones on board as the artist. Rob Venditti and Wilfredo Torres are in charge of Superman ’78 as writer and artist, respectively.

Both series will debut “with six digital chapters of each” on July 27, “followed by new chapters of each comic book for the six weeks that immediately follow.”

The 12 chapters will hit printers and run as a six-issue comic book series between August and October. Batman ‘89 will be released as a hardcover collection in October and Superman ‘78 will get the same treatment in November.
