This October, Gotham City will be overrun by new villains. In DETECTIVE COMICS, Batman will face the Gotham Ripper. In BATGIRL, Barbara Gordon will take on Mirror. Mysterious villains will be terrorizing Gotham in BATMAN, BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT, BATWOMAN and NIGHTWING. And around the globe, evil takes new forms in BATWING and RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS. Can the Bat family defeat all these foes or is the fate of Gotham – and the world at large – permanently doomed?
As time runs out for Batman to rescue Dawn Golden from deep beneath Gotham City, the city above is at the mercy of the Demon possessing Ragman. And when The Penguin kidnaps innocent civilians and Commissioner Gordon begins to lose hope, will Batman’s efforts be enough to save the city from its demons? BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT #3 is written and pencilled by David Finch, inked by Scott Williams and Richard Friend and hits stores on Wednesday. [gallery link="file" order="DESC" columns="2"]
To celebrate the release of SUPERMAN: THE BLACK RING (now available in comic shops and bookstores everywhere), we asked associate editor Wil Moss about his experience working with Paul Cornell and Pete Woods as Lex Luthor took center stage in the pages of Action Comics:
The Batman does not like guns. Specifically, Bruce Wayne does not like guns. The reason why was established long ago. An alley. A mugger. A murder. In the opening pages of BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT issue 2, on sale Wednesday, writer/artist David Finch has the Batman dispatch the Penguins' goons. When he tells them, "No more guns", we believe him.[gallery link="file" order="DESC" columns="2"]
We showed off David Finch's already-great pencils for his BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT #5, but the finished piece of art is just too good not to share here. BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT #5 will be on sale in June.
