The immersive land will feature interactive experiences, including state-of-the-art rides and attractions, authentically themed restaurants and memorabilia shops — all inspired by the characters and stories from DC’s famed comic books and movies.

Mark Gsellman, Park General Manager, stated: “Home to fan-favorite DC Super Heroes, we’re very excited for our guests to experience the immersive environment of Gotham City, where Batman will emerge from the shadows to help fight crime and stop the city’s Super-Villains. From heart-pounding flight simulators to authentic landmarks, this land is sure to leave a lasting impression on guests of all ages.”

In Gotham City, guests will be able to climb aboard a one-of-a-kind robotically controlled flying Batwing vehicle to help the Caped Crusader bring crime to its knees in Batman: Knight Flight — a highly exhilarating dark ride, providing drops, climbs, spins, and rolls. On this ride, guests will step through a secret panel at Wayne Tech headquarters where they will be recruited as test pilots for the newest prototype of the ultimate urban patrol vehicle. Launching out of the Batcave and soaring over moonlit rooftops, guests will forever remember the experience of thwarting criminals alongside Batman. This ride combines a high-tech flight simulator with immersive scenery and state-of-the-art special effects for a thrilling experience.

Hungry, law-abiding citizens can satisfy their appetites at Gotham City’s Finest — the Police Department’s own favorite hangout spot. If guests prefer living on the other side of the law, the Hall Of Doom, hidden in an abandoned subway station, hosts a dinner service for some of Gotham City’s most feared Super-Villains. If savory delights don’t do the trick, guests with a sweet tooth can visit the Mr. Freeze Ice Scream Truck for an ice-cold dessert.

Tomasi, Pat Gleason, Dan Jurgens, Brad Meltzer, Louise Simonson, Jerry Ordway, Tom King, Scott Snyder and More

DC is going all-out to celebrate the one-thousandth issue of ACTION COMICS—the longest continually published comic book of its kind in history, the series that introduced Superman to the world and the title that launched the superhero genre. The Jim Lee-drawn cover features a new costume that integrates a variety of classic and new elements, including the Man of Steel’s trademark red trunks.

“ACTION COMICS #1000 represents a watershed moment in the history of not just comic books, but entertainment, literature and pop culture,” said Lee. “There’s no better way to celebrate Superman’s enduring popularity than to give him a look that combines some new accents with the most iconic feature of his classic design.”

This milestone issue will also include two 15-page stories from two of DC’s current and most popular talent teams: SUPERMAN writer Peter J. Tomasi and artist Pat Gleason, as well as ACTION COMICS writer and artist Dan Jurgens.

“The one-thousandth issue of ACTION COMICS is an incredible milestone in pop culture and a testament to the vision of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster,” said DC publisher Dan DiDio. “Without this book, along with Siegel and Shuster’s fertile imaginations and boundless creativity, the superhero’s place in literature may have been wildly different, if not altogether nonexistent.”

This must-have collector’s item comic book will also feature previously unpublished art from Curt Swan, whose dynamic, iconic style many consider the definitive look for the Man of Steel throughout comics’ Golden and Silver Ages. Acclaimed DC writer Marv Wolfman will script a story based on this never-before-seen content.

G.I. Joe Sells Out Another Issue Starring New Snake Eyes

G.I. Joe Sells Out Another Issue
Starring New Snake Eyes
Issue #247 Becomes Fourth Consecutive Issue to Sell Out

San Diego, CA (January 10, 2018) – IDW Publishing is thrilled to announce yet another sell out for the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero comic book series! The long-running series continues to pull in fresh readers eager to see the new Snake Eyes, Dawn Moreno, in action!

G.I. JOE mainstay Larry Hama wrote the issue with art by Netho Diaz, which tells the ongoing saga of Dawn, who stars in this “Dawn of the Arashikage” arc, which began last issue with #246. A truly game-changing storyline, fan demand has resulted in yet another sold out issue at the distributor level, following the sell out of the preceding three issues before it, each one earning collector’s item status.

Dawn Moreno, who debuted in G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero#226, was once a gifted high school athlete whose unique physical abilities drew the attention of Cobra Commander. The Cobra elite put Dawn under intense experimentation, accidentally implanting the memories of the original (and now deceased) Snake Eyes into Dawn’s fragile teenage mind. Now, as a haunted Dawn struggles against visions of a dark past that does not truly belong to her, Snake Eyes’ longtime ninja comrades from the Arashikage Clan have joined together to help Dawn overcome the waking nightmare her young life has become…

“As a fan, I still remember the first time I saw issue #1’s unforgettable cover and thought, ‘That is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen,’” said series Editor, Tom Waltz. “As editor, this short evolutionary journey we’ve taken so far with Dawn Moreno has been awesome, more so because I’m sharing it with fantastic folks like SL Gallant, Netho Diaz, and so many others, including our legions of loyal fans around the world. But most of all, working with living legend Larry Hama has been a true treat.”

Issue #247 is on sale now at your local comic shop while supplies last, as well as digitally. A second printing of issue #246 is also now available to pick up which kicks off this story in the lead up to the oversized milestone issue #250 which concludes the “Dawn of the Arashikage” arc!
