I hate to sound like too much of a broken record, but one of the perks of wandering around the DCU editorial floor is you get to slyly scan over all the cool art and sketches the editors have on their desks and in their offices. It's always a treat to see what stuff is coming in from our various and hugely talented creators. Case in point: If you haven't been reading writer David Hine and artist Jeremy Haun's ARKHAM REBORN, you're truly missing out on the reimagining of a key component of the Bat-mythos. Still not sold? Well, check out this two-page spread from the final issue, by the aforementioned Mr. Haun.
Happy Friday, Source crew. Are these Frazer Irving covers cool or what? Well, there are two more to show, and we've got one right here. Enjoy the cover to December's ARKHAM REBORN #3, from writer David Hine, artist Jeremy Haun and the aforementioned Irving, as they team up to tell the tale of Jeremiah Arkham's mad quest to rebuild the asylum that bears his name.
We promised you more Bat-news on Monday, so here we go. And, yes, it does have something to do with the lovely Frazer Irving cover you see above.
ARKHAM REBORN #1 (of 3), written by David Hine with interior art by Jeremy Haun, picks up after the events of BATTLE FOR THE COWL. After the Black Mask's destruction of Arkham Asylum, Dr. Jeremiah Arkham has rebuilt the Asylum following the design of his mad uncle Amadeus. Intended as a model for enlightened treatment of mental illness, the building soon mutates into a torture house, and the inmates find themselves trapped in a living hell. And when Jeremiah starts hearing a voice from beyond the grave, it becomes painfully clear that you can't really get rid of the crazy when it comes to Arkham Asylum.
This new mini, which reunites the creative team behind BATTLE FOR THE COWL: ARKHAM ASYLUM, hits 10/28.
