From Batman in a bat(hing) suit to Poison Ivy pin-ups, this very special one-shot is summer fun from (bikini) top to (bikini) bottom.
Plus! Each copy of G’nort’s Illustrated Swimsuit Edition features a randomly inserted centerfold, distributed in equal quantities: Poison Ivy by Jen Bartel, Nightwing and Barbara Gordon by Jorge Jiménez and Alejandro Sánchez, and G’nort himself, by Simon Bisley! You’re not going to want to miss the all-new pin-ups of DC’s beach-body babes!
