To say that Jean-Paul Valley’s life has been turned upside over the past year is putting it mildly, as anyone who’s been reading DETECTIVE COMICS knows. A newly minted member of Batman’s team, Azrael has found himself questioning his beliefs, and then questioning them again, even as he’s forged a particularly close friendship with Luke Fox.
In this week’s issue of DETECTIVE COMICS, after a run in with Zatanna, Bruce is forced to remember an important piece of Zatanna’s past—but like with everything else, this knowledge comes with a price.
Can Bruce convince Zatanna he can handle the truth? Will their relationship be strained forever? Check out how Bruce takes the news in this week’s issue of DETECTIVE COMICS #960 from writer James Tynion with art by Alvaro Martinez , Raul Fernandez, Brad Anderson (colors), and Sal Cipriano (letters).
Monsters! Morgues! Floods! Flashbacks! A totally ripped Dr. Strange!
And that’s just in the first issue. “Night of the Monster Men,” is a six-issue storyline creeping into the pages of BATMAN, DETECTIVE COMICS and NIGHTWING over the next four weeks. As fans who grabbed this week’s first two chapters will tell you, this Steve Orlando-scripted story is a creepy, large-scaled monster movie epic that promises to change the face of Gotham forever. And best of all, you can jump right in even if you haven’t read the prior comics in the series.
