Released in comic book stores last week, BATMAN: GATES OF GOTHAM will be in bookstores everywhere beginning tomorrow. Collected in its entirety for the first time, the critically acclaimed miniseries is written by fan-favorite Gotham scribes Scott Snyder (BATMAN) and Kyle Higgins (NIGHTWING).
Last we saw The Architect, he had planted a bomb that if set off, would drown half of Gotham City. As Damian Wayne and Cassandra Cain swim deep underneath the Kane Bridge to try to locate the bomb and diffuse it, Batman comes face to face with The Architect and delivers him a startling revelation about his past. But will The Architect believe him and put a stop to his plan and save the city? Or is he too blinded by his need for vengeance to hear the truth about the Gates of Gotham?
With only a limited amount of time left before more innocent blood is shed, the Bat-Team must find The Architect and diffuse the bomb that will drown half of Gotham City. But even when he is found, how will The Architect be persuaded to not go through with his sinister plan? It’ll be up to Batman to figure out the answers from an artifact that dates back to 1800s Gotham …
With a savage killer still rampant in Gotham, time is running out for Batman to stop him before he strikes again. In order to get closer to the truth about the man in the iron suit’s identity, The Dark Knight will have to delve deeper into the origins and history of Gotham City itself. Is the killer enacting a centuries-old revenge against the city’s founding families or is he simply a crazed collector of Gotham’s artifacts?
Fresh off of his stint as co-writer of BATMAN: GATES OF GOTHAM, Kyle Higgins will be taking full reign as the writer of DEATHSTROKE, beginning this September. NEWSARAMA has the exclusive first interview with him about the project. So how would Kyle describe Deathstroke?
“He's at a level where, to him, it's all kind of a game. Life, the world, etc., is there to be played. And killing and doing what he does for his legacy or his reputation – that's the absolute most important thing to him. Family dies, friends disappoint, but legacy is forever,” he told NEWSARAMA.
