Gotham’s got the Dynamic Duo – but that’s not the only powerful pair of vigilantes protecting a major metropolis. London has Knight and Squire, the British heroes and frequent allies of Batman and Robin. And in a secret pub within the city where peace is kept magically, heroes and villains alike gather over a pint and talk about their day. But magic, as we all know, is a fickle thing – so what happens when the barriers are dropped and a building packed with heroes and villains confront each other at the same time? Well, it’s up to Knight and Squire to keep the peace, and that’s obviously no small task. But don’t take my word for it. Writer Paul Cornell, what say you?
“I think Knight and Squire is some of my best comics work. I'm getting the chance to wildly invent, and it turns out that whatever I invent, James can draw! It's been huge fun. I think that comes over. I'm hoping The Milkman will get a solo ongoing.”
Thanks, Paul! And now, here’s a first look at a few pages from KNIGHT AND SQUIRE #1, by Cornell and artist Jimmy Broxton.
