FREE BATMAN #608 IN NEWSPAPER!


750,000 COPIES!!!! DC is giving out 3/4 of a million copies with the June 13th edition of the New York Post newspaper and its the first Jim Lee issue - clever! This is great promotion for the Batman movie but I always wonder - is it necessary to do this in New York? I mean isn't everyone there going to see it anyways? Or is it that New York is so influential on the rest of the world (it is) that if all 12 million people there see it then that will boost the visibility of the movie?

It's great to have comics given out like this and what better issue than one with the awesome Jim Lee art, and yes its better than a Batman comic TV commercial - but will it really drive comic sales or box office sales? Will this issue of the NYP be sent to be slabbed at CGC? Will the kids who's parents give them this be sucked into the world of comics? Find out next week, same Bat-channel, same Bat-Time!
