Official Press Release

In response to inquiries from retailers, DC Comics announces a clarification on the variant editions of four titles solicited in the August Previews (Volume XVI #8).

The titles are JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #3, SUPERGIRL AND THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #23, TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED #1 and A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET #1. Details concerning these variant editions were inadvertently left out of the August Previews Retailer Order Form.
