Scott Snyder & Greg Capullo Discuss Batman: Zero Year


Kicking off this June, Batman: Zero Year is an epic and grand 11-issue arc that chronicles the untold details of Batman’s origin story within DC Comics-The New 52. From the #1 New York Times bestselling creative team of writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo, Zero Year takes flight in BATMAN #21.

“He becomes Batman pretty early in this,” Snyder teased to Comic Book Resources about Bruce Wayne picking up the Dark Knight’s cape and cowl. “You’ll see him as Batman not too far in. So in terms of that origin, that’s part of it. But part of this is the first big adventure he had as Batman. It’s not just how Bruce becomes Batman. That’s certainly a big part of ‘Zero Year’ at the beginning, but it’s also about how the city changes for him. It’s about how he becomes its hero. What does that mean? And what kind of threat is it going to throw at him to challenge him and make sure he’s worthy of that?”

It’s ‘The Zero Year,’ the one that no one has told the story of before. We see how Bruce became the Batman, built the cave, faced off with his first super villain … It’s time for a new story showing how Batman became who he is in The New 52. It builds up the mythology.”
