Step back into the Gotham of Tim Burton’s seminal classic Batman movies on August 10! Batman ’89 by screenwriter Sam Hamm (Batman, Batman Returns) and artist Joe Quinones (Dial H for Hero) will pull on a number of threads left dangling by the prolific director in an incredible new comic book miniseries!
When the new six-issue comic book run launches next month, Gotham City is being torn in two as citizens dressed as Batman and The Joker duke it out in the streets! As D.A. Harvey Dent tries to keep the city together, he targets the one problem tearing it apart: Batman! And he’ll get Bruce Wayne’s help in taking down the Dark Knight!
In this first look preview, all the classic elements of Burton’s Batman are on full display.
