HEROES EXCLUSIVE :: DARK KNIGHT III VARIANT BY BRIAN STELFREEZE

October 09, 2015 By: Rico Renzi Category: Exclusives, HeroesCon

When we thought about doing a Dark Knight III store variant we asked our pal Brian Stelfreeze because we knew he would do an amazing job. We had no idea just how beautiful it would be though! Brian has pitted Frank Miller’s Carrie Kelly Robin against Superman, it’s a beautiful composition and it’s available in both color and black white. Pre-orders are open now! The books will start shipping at the end of November right after our in-store signing with Brian! You read that right! Brian will be at Heroes Aren’t Hard To Find on November 28th!
