Starting in November, David Finch will take the reins of Batman: The Dark Knight, a new ongoing Batman title featuring the hyper-detailed and kinetic artwork Finch has become known for plus his unique and yet classic interpretation of the Caped Crusader. The series will also see him paired with legendary inker Scott Williams.
Can’t wait until November? The fun begins in October, with Batman: The Return, a one-shot featuring Finch’s masterful pencils and words by Grant Morrison, kicking off a new era for the Dark Knight and giving fans a quick taste of what’s coming up for Batman.
The new series according to Finch is described as follows:
“The Dark Knight takes Batman outside what he knows, into a world of demonology, dark arts, and mystery. He’s the ultimate detective, faster, stronger and smarter than any villain, but now he faces creatures to whom logic and mortality don’t apply.
I want Dark Knight to be true to Batman’s street level, crime fighter roots. He’ll face a rogues gallery that we’re all familiar with, but this book will take him on a darker path where he’ll be stretched to his physical and psychological limits.”
Batman: The Dark Knight #1 hits in November.
