We wouldn’t be true to the New York spirit if we did this episode small!
After last month’s future-set spoiler issue, this week’s BATMAN #29 marks the return of “Zero Year” and the conclusion of the storyline’s second chapter, “Dark City.” If you’ve been reading, you know that the still pretty untested Dark Knight has been dealing with no shortage of problems, including a city-wide blackout, a major storm and plenty of trouble from the Gotham City Police Department. However, most disturbing of all may be the grotesquely malformed corpses that have been popping up around the city—the gruesome calling card of a previously unheard of villain known as Doctor Death.
Ho, ho, ho, heroes! Christmas may be tomorrow, but you can tear into the latest episode of "DC All Access" today. We're looking ahead to 2014 as the DC Comics editorial team reveals what the new year will bring for some of your favorite DC characters. What's next for Batman in Zero Year? Which Superman heroine is joining the Red Lanterns and which is getting her own one-shot? Which villain is Forever Evil's evilest? Find out answers to all of the above.
Six years ago, the legend of Batman emerged amid the greatest catastrophe Gotham had ever endured. A maniac calling himself The Riddler shut down all electric power mere days before a terrifying superstorm. But the Dark Knight isn’t the only hero to surface during this moment in time known only as the ZERO YEAR!
SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read BATMAN #25 or the ZERO YEAR tie-ins yet and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!).
If feels like it’s been a while since the last official chapter of “Trinity War,” and after Geoff Johns revealed a startling major plot twist (which you can read about here, if you missed the news), we’re itching to get back into it.
