Sean Murphy Announces New Batman Title

1

On Twitter over the weekend, writer/artist Sean Murphy revealed that he has signed an two-year ‘exclusive’ agreement with DC Comics to work on his already-announced arc of Scott Snyder’s All-Star Batman, as well as a subsequent ‘Elseworlds’ Batman series he’ll be writing and drawing himself.

“For the next two years I’m exclusively working with DC on 2 Batman books: All-Star and one that I’m writing/drawing myself,” said Murphy. “So if you’re planning on reading my All-Star run (the finale), pick up Snyder’s All-Star books NOW.”

Murphy describes his as-yet-untitled Batman book as “my [Dark Knight Returns] and Year 100 — an Elseworlds-like take on Batman. My attempt at an opus,” he explained. “Planning on using as many of the Bat villains as I can!”

Joined by Carrie Kelly, a teenaged Robin, Batman takes to the streets to end the threat of the mutant gangs that have overrun the city. And after facing off against The Joker and Two-Face for the final time, Batman finds himself in mortal combat with his former ally, Superman, in a battle that only one will survive.

The box set contains four 48-page books and will be released on November 2, 2016 for $49.99.
