I interrupt my usual DC Nation-ness to bring you, the DC Comics reader, a very important announcement: The comics shipping this month are freaking awesome! I know you're thinking "But Ian, the comics are awesome every month!" and you're totally right - they are - but this month features so many special items I wanted to make sure that you were perfectly clear on the degree of amazing we've got going on. Throughout October we are bringing you specials, new projects, new formats, new beginnings, and much more.
Finally, the “lost” Bernie Wrightson Batman story has arrived. Written by veteran Ron Marz with inks by the masterful Kevin Nowlan, the story pits the Dark Knight against Solomon Grundy and features full-page illustrations throughout the issue. But that’s not all. BATMAN: HIDDEN TREASURES also features a newly-colored Wrightson and Len Wein classic, “Night of the Bat,” which originally appeared in SWAMP THING #7. Both stories feature colors by acclaimed artist Alex Sinclair. BATMAN: HIDDEN TREASURES hits today. [gallery link="file"]
Bernie Wrightson drawing Batman. What more do you really need, beyond knowing that the master storyteller is putting pen to paper on a tale of the Dark Knight? Well, OK. How about industry legend Kevin Nowlan? All bringing to life a story by veteran writer Ron Marz.
