Yes, after taking a few weeks off, we’re back to break down what’s in store for you this Wednesday from DC Comics and Vertigo. And what’s in store for you is the debut issue of DC Comics’ first weekly comic series since the start of The New 52.
We’re celebrating Batman all month long here on DCComics.com, and what better way to do that than with an awesome, all-Batman episode of DC All Access?! First, we speak to animation legend Bruce Timm about "Strange Days," the spectacularly retro short he's assembled in honor of Batman's 75th Anniversary.
In honor of the Batman's 75th Anniversary, the latest all-new episode of DC All Access is devoted to all things Dark Knight! Featuring a sneak peek at Bruce Timm's exciting new anniversary short, as well as all the latest and greatest from the Batman line of comics, we're also giving you a once-in-a-lifetime chance to win an awesome Batman: Arkham City Batarang Full Scale Replica.
To me, one of the most interesting things about Batman is how he’s managed to go through so many different incarnations—from a campy live action TV Adam West, to an animated Bruce Timm iteration, to an older post-retirement Frank Miller version—and rather than turning us off or getting fans upset, we’ve embraced so many of them. As a character he’s just so malleable. He has no powers, so anyone could be under that cape and cowl and give him a new vibe.
Earlier this year, DC Collectibles announced that they would be releasing a new line of action figures based on the highly influential and almost universally beloved Batman: The Animated Series. Fans were excited, and so were we. In fact, after we heard the news, we held an entire weeklong event here on DCComics.com to celebrate the series.
Assemble Batman's logo!
Every legendary hero has an opposite number. The other side of the coin. The darkness to their light. These reflections of evil, death and menace bring out the best in our champions – if they can survive the experience.
But none compare to The Joker – the deadliest, most frightening villain ever to grace the comic book page and the bloodthirsty, grinning psychopath who, in his horrifying return to Gotham City, sported a new, disturbing visage: his own face!
