DC Comics is set to release a Batman comic with a difference this November as it launches the four-issue miniseries Batman: Creature of the Night from writer Kurt Busiek and artist John Paul Leon. A spiritual companion to Busiek’s Superman: Secret Identity, Batman: Creature of the Night follows a young Batman fan whose obsession with the Caped Crusader leads him to some very dark places which he must ultimately confront when his parents are murdered after walking in on a robbery. Check out an unlettered preview of the first issue here…
Young Bruce Wainwright lost his parents in a violent crime…and in the real world, no superheroes exist to save the day. But as grief and rage builds inside Bruce until he feels he can’t keep it inside anymore, something strange starts taking wing in the Gotham night! Perhaps Bruce’s grief isn’t inside him after all?
Modern masters Kurt Busiek and John Paul Leon unite for the spiritual companion to the beloved SUPERMAN: SECRET IDENTITY, putting a new spin you’ve never seen before on the legend of Batman—and the dark emotions that drive him!
Batman: Creature of the Night #1 goes on sale on November 29th, priced $5.99.
