Scott Snyder Says Batman: Last Knight on Earth #1 Has Already Sold More than 100,000 Copies

Batman: Last Knight on Earth may be the final Batman story by superstar writer Scott Snyder and superstar artist Greg Capullo, but DC probably wishes they would make more. Snyder took to Twitter today to begin teasing the comic, which hits stores on May 29th, and he casually let slip that the book has already surpassed 100,000 copies sold to comic book retailers, which means it could end up being a sell-out even before it hits comic stores.

Unfortunately for DC, and for fans who wish Snyder and Capullo would continue telling Batman stories forever, Snyder has had this ending planned since the beginning… and we all have Grant Morrison to blame.

It’s no surprise that Snyder would be terrified of Morrison, considering the famous comic book writer is known for having magical powers and frequently communicates via astral projection of his disembodied head, which would terrify anyone if we’re being honest. And now, here were are, less than two months away from the beginning of the end of Snyder and Capullo on Batman… but at least they’ll be going out in bestselling style.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
