Whenever we go to the Madhouse grandparents' house, it always makes me smile when I spot their cherished collection of meerkats. I was therefore intrigued when an email landed in my inbox with news of a new partnership with DC, following their recent collaboration with Warner Bros on the latest blockbuster Batman V Superman film.
They offered to send a special limited edition gift through the post and when the postie dropped it off, I couldn't help but laugh. Sergei and Aleksandr have been transformed into furry versions of their favourite superheroes Batman and Superman, to feature in a 16-page comic book called Meerkat Movies : A Heroic Journey.
The duo find themselves in hot water as they make their way to see the blockbuster film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Their journey is far from smooth as they get caught between rival street gangs and snarling dogs as they try to make it to the cinema on time.
The comic is illustrated by artistic master Neal Adams, known for his previous work with iconic Super Heroes including Superman, Batman, and Green Arrow, and written by DC staple Tony Bedard.
Fans were left on a cliff hanger at the end of part 1 but the the concluding part is also now available to download at comparethemarket.com (for a limited time only, so get in quick to avoid disappointment). Super fans can also be in with a chance to win one of a limited number of hardbound copies of the comic online over the coming weeks.
Disclosure : We received a copy of the comic.
