DC Comics recently revealed they will release a “DC Icons” series in October. The series will see twenty-nine different Capes and Criminals get retro “foil” treatment.

Brian Michael Bendis’s inaugural issue of Superman #1 hit shelves July 11, 2018. Hot off the heels of his successful Man of Steel six-part mini-series, the DC universe is celebrating with incredible variants from some of the hottest artists of today.
Batman and Catwoman say “I do" in DC’s Batman #50, the culmination to one of the longest running on-again, off-again “romances” in comic book history. The relationship between Selina Kyle and Bruce Wayne began in Batman’s first solo series, where Catwoman was introduced in Batman #1 during the spring of 1940, along with The Joker and Hugo Strange. She served as more of an antagonist than a true villain like Joker, with her motivations more led by greed than evil or chaos, though this did not stop her from holding her own against Batman or whomever got in her path.
Despite varying artists and writers throughout the years, each interaction of Batman and Catwoman was a subtle mixture of confrontation and flirtation. Finally, over 75 years later, “The Bat and The Cat” are finally tying the knot and fans have plenty to celebrate. Expect not only the happy union of Bruce and Selina in Batman #50, but also over 20 variants (and counting) from an all-star lineup of artists like Tyler Kirkham, Francesco Mattina, Frank Cho, and many more. Batman #50 is an unforgettable and momentous occasion in comic book history!

Between Imaginary Friends Studios (his art studio), a t-shirt design business, and cranking out jaw-dropping variants for “The Big Two", Mr. Lau is an incredibly busy man. Luckily, Comic Burst's Nathan Liberty was given a rare and exciting opportunity to speak with the one and only Artgerm.
