In June, DC will launch a new title focused on the Caped Crusader and the Last Son of Krypton. Batman/Superman chronicles the duo’s early days, when they meet and presumably don’t like each other until they like each other. USA Today announced that the comic will be written by Greg Pak and will feature art by Jae Lee.

The comic is mostly being kept under wraps at this point, but the timing of the launch is auspicious. The new Superman reboot, Man of Steel, hits theaters in June, so it makes sense that they would launch a new Supes comic book which happens to co-star DC’s most popular character. The fact that Batman gets top billing is intriguing — there was another duo comic, started in 2003, which ran for a decade under the title Superman/Batman. Both comics were preceded by World’s Finest, which is unfortunately not SEO-friendly.

DC released a couple of cool illustrations by Jae Lee. Check them out below:
