DC announces DC Nation #0, sampler issue coming May 2nd

Want to get a taste of what DC Comics is cooking up with their superhero universe? Then DC Nation #0 issue is just the ticket.

Superhero sampler

I absolutely love what DC has been doing. Their universe has been on a roll since the Rebirth event, and so much of what the classic DCU got “right” is right once again. That’s particularly true with its biggest heroes.

DC Nation #0 will spotlight that, as well as what’s to come. The book features stories by Scott Snyder, Tom King, and the newly arrived Brian Michael Bendis, in a 32 page format. The price? A staggering .25 USD, or free if you go the digital download route.

Here’s what’s included:

With the unbelievable conclusion to Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s DARK NIGHTS: METAL paving the way for the JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE four-issue weekly series (with co-writers James Tynion IV, Joshua Williamson and artist Francis Manapul), fans will be clamoring for more information on what kind of wild, over the top roller-coaster ride Snyder and crew have planned next; artist Jorge Jiménez (SUPER SONS) joins Snyder, Tynion IV and Williamson for a preview of just how big the Justice League’s next challenge will be when JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE begins May 9.

In a Batman story by Tom King and artist Clay Mann, The Joker gets word about the wedding between the Bat and the Cat, and he’s not happy. With the wedding story arc reaching its climax in BATMAN #50 on sale July 4, The Joker will be that one wedding guest most likely to speak now and not hold his peace at all.

From the return of the trademark red trunks to the debut of superstar writer Brian Michael Bendis in the ACTION COMICS #1000 comic book in April, the future for Superman couldn’t shine any brighter, but for fans, that’s just the tip of the super-iceberg. Bendis, along with legendary artist José Luis García-López, is also contributing an all-new story to DC NATION #0, a prelude to his highly anticipated MAN OF STEEL weekly miniseries debuting May 30.

And in addition to the above, fans will also get a taste of DC Nation the promotional magazine. The first issue of the new mag for fans will hit about a month after DC Nation #0, and will be free to take home with you. Watch for that on June the 6th.

As for DC Nation #0, that arrives on May 2nd.
