What’s New In The New 52: Bat-Bot Invasion

What’s New In The New 52: Bat-Bot Invasion

By Bob Harras Thursday, August 15th, 2013

A few weeks ago, I showed you a character study of Bane by new TALON artist Emanuel Simeoni. Today, get an exclusive first look at Simeoni’s interior art by checking out an incredible spread from his debut issue.

In TALON #12, Calvin Rose and Batman have joined forces to track down Bane. But that’s not the only team-up happening in the book! In an attempt to reclaim Gotham, Bane has made allies with the former head of the Court of Owls, and together, they’re amassing an army to take back the city.

In order to find Bane, Calvin and Batman send an army of Bat-Bots to Santa Prisca. Alas, what they discover is not exactly what they were looking for. Appearing for the first time since their introduction in BATMAN, INCORPORATED, these Bat-Bots have holographic vision and are quickly becoming an integral tool in the Dark Knight’s utility belt. Above, take a look at Simeoni’s depiction of the Bat-Bots in action. And don’t forget to pick up BATMAN #23.4: BANE and BATMAN AND ROBIN #23.2: THE COURT OF OWLS to see the seeds of this incredible story being planted.
