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.
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.
DC ENTERTAINMENT SIGNS TOP TALENT
Writer Tom King, Artists Clay Mann and John Timms “Taking Their Talents”
to DC Entertainment
THE SHERIFF OF BABYLON is a gripping, perception-shattering new Vertigo miniseries from writer Tom King (GRAYSON and OMEGA MEN) and artist Mitch Gerads. A crime tale set against the backdrop of the Iraq War, it tells a fictitious story that draws inspiration from the often surreal and frequently dangerous experiences of thousands of American veterans. It’s fiction that feels real, and for good reason. Tom King is a former CIA operations officer who served in Iraq, an experience that informed much of The Sheriff of Babylon.
