"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Comic-Con International has debuted Jim Lee’s cover for the 2014 souvenir book, which celebrates the 75th anniversary of Batman’s introduction in Detective Comics #27.
Colored by Alex Sinclair, the image of the Dark Knight crouching on one of Gotham City’s ubiquitous gargoyles during a thunderstorm is penciled and inked by Lee (a rarity, as his work is typically inked by Scott Williams). Details about T-shirts bearing the illustration are promised soon.
Given for free to Comic-Con attendees, the 224-page souvenir book includes sections devoted to Batman, as well as to the 75th anniversary of Marvel, the 50th anniversary of Daredevil, the 30th anniversaries of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Usagi Yojimbo, and the 20th anniversary of Hellboy.Comic-Con International will be held July 24-27 in San Diego.
