From the Editor's Desk: Chris Burnham Accepts Exclusive with DC Comics

I'm so excited to have artist Chris Burnham become a permanent part of the Batman group. As soon as Chris helped out on a few pages in BATMAN & ROBIN #16, we knew we had someone special in our hands. Chris brings a unique look to Batman-it's difficult to define his style or compare him to others-he's truly an artist in an area all of his own. Readers will be amazed at the artwork he provided for BATMAN, INC. #4 ... and he's already hard at work on issues #6 and #7![gallery link="file" order="DESC" columns="2"]

Can Knight & Squire end the Joker's killing spree?

The Joker's cut a bloody path through Britain's heroes, hauling a reluctant Jarvis Poker in tow for a front-row view of the carnage. It's up to Knight and Squire to figure out who is really behind these mysterious murders before another hero is taken as a victim.

Read the exciting conclusion to Paul Cornell & Jimmy Broxton's acclaimed miniseries when KNIGHT & SQUIRE #6 hits stores next week!

DCU in 2011: El Gaucho and the Batman of Africa join BATMAN, INCORPORATED.

A new status quo. Those words are thrown around, a lot, in the comic book industry. But that’s exactly what New York Times bestselling writer Grant Morrison and team have created with BATMAN, INC.

Bruce Wayne has extended Batman’s mission—and brand—globally.

So far, we’ve met England’s Knight & Squire, Mr. Unknown (the Batman of Japan) and El Gaucho from Argentina's Batman. Judging from this advance look at Yanick Paquette’s gorgeous art from an upcoming issue of BATMAN, INCORPORATED, the international action and intrigue are only ramping up in the coming months.
