Wrocław Zoo is to feature on the Polish-edition cover of a new Batman comic that’s part of the DC Universe Revival series.
The neon sign of Wrocław Zoo will appear on the cover of “Batman Birds of Prey Volume 9”, which is to be published on January 22nd 2020.
Wrocław itself will not feature in the story. Therefore one would expect the intention of the special-edition covers is purely to spark interest and drive sales up.
Sites from various Polish cities have also been selected as scenes for the cover of other comic books in the DC Universe Revival series.
Artist Grzegorz Przyby was given the task of designing the Wrocław cover. He says he opted to use the sign of the zoo as it well known, but still a bit more “off the beaten track” compared to the Rynek. In addition, he believes the scene suits the atmosphere of Batman better, especially when you consider The Penguin character.
