DC Entertainment Announces Official Publication Date for BEFORE WATCHMEN

A double shot of Bernie Wrightson Batman? Sold.

Finally, the “lost” Bernie Wrightson Batman story has arrived. Written by veteran Ron Marz with inks by the masterful Kevin Nowlan, the story pits the Dark Knight against Solomon Grundy and features full-page illustrations throughout the issue.

But that’s not all. BATMAN: HIDDEN TREASURES also features a newly-colored Wrightson and Len Wein classic, “Night of the Bat,” which originally appeared in SWAMP THING #7. Both stories feature colors by acclaimed artist Alex Sinclair.

BATMAN: HIDDEN TREASURES hits today.
