    BATMAN: DEATH MASK SERIES NOW PRICED AT JUST $2.99

    DC Comics announces that the cover price on the BATMAN: DEATH MASK miniseries has been lowered to just $2.99 per issue!

    BATMAN: DEATH MASK is written and illustrated by Yoshinori Natsume, acclaimed creator of Toguri, who makes his American comics debut with this original Batman manga tale.

    In BATMAN: DEATH MASK #1, there’s a new serial killer in Gotham, one who may have ties to the training Bruce Wayne acquired as a young man in Japan. Does the murderer know that Bruce Wayne is the Batman?

    And in BATMAN: DEATH MASK #2, Bruce Wayne must confront his past and examine how the time he spent training to become Batman affected him — and whether those experiences led to the killer now rampaging through Gotham City’s underworld. (This black-and-white miniseries no longer will be in Prestige Format, and will be saddle stitched instead of squarebound.)

    BATMAN: DEATH MASK #1 (FEB080205) is solicited in the February Previews and is scheduled to arrive in stores on April 9 with a cover price of $2.99 U.S.

    BATMAN: DEATH MASK #2 (MAR080156) is solicited in the March Previews and is scheduled to arrive in stores on May 7 with a cover price of $2.99 U.S.

    INCOGNEGRO GRAPHIC NOVEL WINS RAVE REVIEWS

    The new Vertigo graphic novel INCOGNEGRO is winning praise in high-profile reviews, including these highlights:

    “[An] engrossing graphic novel, with its smart dialogue and sharp images. The powerful coda well befits the story, much as INCOGNEGRO proudly exemplifies the graphic novel.” — The New York Times

    “INCOGNEGRO is a compelling read that’ll pull you in from page one . . . If you’re a fan of Walter Mosley’s work, especially his novels featuring “Easy” Rawlins, then INCOGNEGRO is a must have.” — Boston Now

    In addition, interviews with writer Mat Johnson on INCOGNEGRO have run in The Washington Post Express and The Miami Herald.
