SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read BATMAN #15 and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!)
From the creative team of co-writers Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV and artist Jock, “Red Light, Green Light” serves as more than just the back-up story to BATMAN #15. It also marks the return of one of the most infamous members of Batman’s rogue gallery: The Riddler!
Launched in September as part of DC Comics’ historic “Zero Month,” TALON centers around Calvin Rose, the Talon who managed to escape his doomed fate. Co-written by Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV and featuring art by Guillem March, this all-new ongoing series spins directly out of this past spring’s “Night of the Owls” crossover event that spanned the Bat-family of titles.
In September, Zero Month introduced you to four all-new ongoing series: THE PHANTOM STRANGER, SWORD OF SORCERY, TALON and TEAM 7. With these #0 issues, you got a taste of the new characters and stories that will be impacting the ever-growing DC Universe.
While many have gone by the moniker of Robin, these protégés of the Dark Knight are just as mesmerized by the hope and justice the symbol of the bat represents as are the rest of the citizens of Gotham City.
In the back-up story in BATMAN #0, writer James Tynion IV (TALON) and artist Andy Clarke (BATMAN AND ROBIN) travel five years back in time and show how various characters react to seeing the iconic Bat Symbol illuminate the night sky for the very first time.
Timed to the one year anniversary of the launch of the historic DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 initiative, DC Comics will introduce 0 month.
In September 2012, DC Comics will release 0 issues—and we don’t mean we aren’t publishing any titles—but what we will be doing is numbering every DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 title #0.
