Revealed for the first time, the final art for the Black & White Minimal Trade Dress version of our Joshua Middle Batman #50 exclusive!

The big night is almost here! On Tuesday, July, 3rd, we'll reopen the doors at 11:30 PM, at which time we'll have light refreshments and a toast to the (hopefully) happy couple. Then at midnight, all of the week's releases go on sale, not just Batman #50, which include Catwoman #1 by Joelle Jones with an Artgerm variant, Captain America #1 by Ta-Nehisi Coates & Leinil Francis Yu, and Cosmic Ghost Rider #1 and Death of the Inhumans #1 by Donny Cates!

A reminder that in-store you may purchase 1 copy of the full color, full trade dress version (limited to 3,000 copies worldwide) of our Ssalefish exclusive variant for the standard $4.99 cover price, with any additional copies that you'd like for $20 each. The black & white, minimal trade dress version is $20 as well (limited to 1,500 copies) and we have a very limited number of the sets of 3 that include the full color, virgin version (limited to 1,000 copies) available in-store ONLY (all 900+ online pre-orders have SOLD OUT) for $50! Before anyone asks, you can't use the $4.99 full color offer as a discount on the whole set.

We'll also have the regular Mikel Janin, Jim Lee, Arthur Adams, and blank variants available in quantity for cover price, and the 1:100 Jim Lee pencils only sketch variant for $50!

It'll be a night you won't forget, and we've got some other surprises in store for regular business hours on Independence Day, so stay tuned to our Facebook for details!
