Looking Back on Volume One: An Interview with Batman's Tom King

In 2016, writer Tom King concluded spectacular runs on THE OMEGA MEN and Vision, as well as his war-torn crime noir THE SHERIFF OF BABYLON. But he also began the most high profile comics project of his career so far when he took over writing duties for BATMAN, which along with continuing to be one of the most popular books on the stands also made the leap to a twice monthly title.

This Just Happened: Showdown in Santa Prisca

Look, who doesn’t like a good rematch? And we got an absolutely great one this week in BATMAN #13, the final issue in Tom King and Mikel Janín’s taut “I Am Suicide” storyline.

Night of the Monster Men: The Comics

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.

Now at Bat: An Interview with Tom King

Today is Batman Day—a day devoted to celebrating the legacy of the most popular comic book character out there. It’s quite a legacy. For 77 years, Batman stories have been told in comics, movies, animation and video games. That means that for nearly eight decades, not a single day has gone by in which someone hasn’t been creating stories for the Caped Crusader. Some of those people have become legendary—Bill Finger, Dennis O’Neill, Frank Miller, Tim Burton, Paul Dini, Christopher Nolan.
