DC Comics Gets in On That Facsimile Edition Action in August

Lately, it seems like every month Marvel Comics has been publishing one or more “facsimile editions,” reprints of their classic comics which reproduce the entire books in their entirety, exactly as they were originally published… well, except for the cover price. In DC Comics’ August solicitations, Marvel’s Distinguished Competition has gotten in on some of that action with two facsimile edition reprints, one of Batman #232 and one of House of Secrets #92.

The first is the introduction of Ra’s Al Ghul, while the second features the first appearance of Swamp Thing. You can check out the solicitations below, and the full DC solicits here. As for facsimile editions, it looks like they’re here to stay, as DC is referring to them as a “new line.” Cool!

BATMAN #232 FACSIMILE EDITION
written by DENNIS O’NEIL
art by NEAL ADAMS and DICK GIORDANO
cover by NEAL ADAMS
The story that introduced Ra’s al Ghul is reprinted in the first of DC’s new line of facsimile edition comics. In “Daughter of the Demon,” Ra’s reveals that he knows Batman’s secret identity—and that he needs the Caped Crusader’s help to save his daughter, Talia. It’s a tale that established Ra’s al Ghul as one of Batman’s most cunning and unpredictable foes!

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.
