    DC COMICS ADDS 100 PAGES TO THE ABSOLUTE V FOR VENDETTA AT NO EXTRA COST

    With the Vertigo classic V FOR VENDETTA set to be published as an Absolute edition in August, DC Comics is pleased to announce that this acclaimed title by Alan Moore and David Lloyd will be expanded by an additional 100 pages at no additional cost.

    This new material includes all of David Lloyd's silent art pages from the original comic book series, which were not included in the collected editions and have not been seen since the series' original publication by DC Comics in 1988-1989. In addition, an expanded version of the sketchbook section from the hardcover will be included, as well as all of the back cover art from the original issues.

    Along with these new pages, the Absolute edition features the improved production values and coloring from the 2005 hardcover edition for optimum enjoyment of the stunning art and story that the Portland Mercury called, "Perhaps Moore's most powerful work."

    The ABSOLUTE V FOR VENDETTA HC (JAN090275) is on Final Order Cutoff on Thursday, February 5. It is scheduled to arrive in stores on August 19 with 396 pages and a cover price of $99.00 U.S.

    JAMES ROBINSON AND GREG RUCKA TO WRITE SUPERMAN: WORLD OF NEW KRYPTON #1

    SUPERMAN: WORLD OF NEW KRYPTON #1 (JAN090192; variant edition JAN090193), the first issue of the 12-issue miniseries, will be written by the James Robinson and Greg Rucka, the title's regular writing team

    In this issue, following the events of the "New Krypton" crossover, the Man of Steel has had to embrace his past to ensure humanity's future. And while a devastating armed conflict with Earth may have been averted, keeping the peace will be Superman's greatest challenge yet.

    Because of this change, SUPERMAN: WORLD OF NEW KRYPTON #1 will be made returnable at a later date.

    SUPERMAN: WORLD OF NEW KRYPTON #1 is solicited in the January Previews and is scheduled to arrive in stores on March 11.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    SEAN MCKEEVER TO WRITE TITANS #12

    Sean McKeever, writer of both TEEN TITANS and the TERROR TITANS miniseries, will write TITANS #12 (JAN090217).

    This issue features the kickoff of the "Deathtrap" 5-part crossover with VIGILANTE and TEEN TITANS, in which Jericho continues his assault upon his former teammates. As if that wasn't enough, he also draws the Teen Titans into his twisted plot. And the Vigilante makes it his mission to stop Jericho - permanently!

    Because of this change, TITANS #12 will be made returnable at a later date.

    TITANS #12 is solicited in the January Previews and is scheduled to arrive in stores on March 11.
