DC Comics has announced a new DC Black Label title that is coming this December. The artist most closely associated with the launch of Scott Snyder’s massive run with Batman emerges into the light with Batman: One Dark Knight. Best-selling artist Jock will not only draw the upcoming series, but also write the three-issue miniseries.
When a simple GCPD escort goes sideways, Batman finds himself on the wrong end of Gotham City in the middle of a heat wave with a super-villain in tow. Follow Batman as he traverses block by block across a pitch dark Gotham City while dragging a highly difficult E.M.P. to his permanent home at Blackgate Prison. The dark corners of Gotham City contain many surprises…and E.M.P. plans to deliver many more shocks before the night is through!
Jock shared a few comments about the upcoming series. “I think most readers know how much I love drawing Batman, so I was thrilled by the prospect of marrying the visual take with my own storyline for Batman: One Dark Knight. I wanted to tell a propulsive, tight action tale, set over one typical night in Gotham City; except when a blackout strikes it’s a night that goes very, very wrong for Batman. I can’t wait to share more with everyone soon!”
The series will be written and drawn by Jock, along with covers done by the artist as well. The series will release in a prestige format with forty-eight pages. The issues will retail for $6.99. The first issue will feature a variant cover by Cliff Chiang and a one in twenty-five blackout variant cover by Lee Garbett. Batman: One Dark Knight #1 is scheduled to hit retailers on December 7. Take a look at the standard cover and some of the artwork you can expect to find in the gallery above.
