This fall, DC Entertainment will be releasing THE JUDAS COIN, an original 94-page hardcover graphic novel written and illustrated by industry legend Walter Simonson. THE JUDAS COIN features characters from all across the DC Universe. Today, take an exclusive first look at the book’s cover based on a featured showdown between Batman and Two-Face. “The cover for THE JUDAS COIN was designed and drawn with inspiration provided in part by movie posters from the ‘60s and ‘70s,” Simonson exclusively told THE SOURCE.
DETECTIVE COMICS #8 will feature the first in a multi-part series of back-up stories following Harvey Dent and his villainous alter ego, Two-Face. Written by Tony S. Daniel (writer/artist of DETECTIVE COMICS) and drawn by Szymon Kudranski, the 10-page stories will offer a unique look into Dent’s secret past and an in-depth examination of the monster he’s become. Daniel and Kudranski collaborated previously on “Russian Roulette,” the one-shot back-up in DETECTIVE COMICS #5, which was released last week.

In the conclusion to “Pieces,” Two Face not only finally tracks down his long-lost coin, but also his wife, Gilda. But is Gilda the woman he remembers her to be? Or will Two Face be too blinded by betrayal and vengeance to spare his wife’s life? Meanwhile, The Riddler inches ever closer to obtaining the skeleton key to his locked memories. With these two bloodthirsty rogues on the loose in Gotham City, which one must Batman stop first before innocent lives are lost?
After being left for dead, Two-Face finds allegiance in one of the most notorious members of Batman’s gallery of Rogues. And not only is he still looking for his coin but his quest for revenge just got significantly more personal. Can the Dark Knight stop the treacherous duo before they unleash complete havoc onto the streets of Gotham? BATMAN #711 is written by Tony S. Daniel, features art by Steve Scott and Ryan Winn, and hits stores today. [gallery link="file" order="DESC" columns="2"]
Two-Face has always been at least half-insane, but the loss of the scarred coin that keeps him semi-balanced has sent him reeling over the edge. The commissioner calls on Batman's help to stop Two-Face's murderous quest before more innocent lives are lost. Tony Daniel and Steve Scott's BATMAN #710 is on sale this week.
