DC Comics has announced a brand new ongoing series, Batman Secret Files, focusing on the various members of the Batman Universe. The series will be comprised of single forty-page one-shots with dedicated stories for each character. There is no specific mention of the frequency of the series, but in July there will be two issues releasing.
First up is an issue featuring the Signal. The issue will be written by Tony Patrick with art by Christian Duce. The issue will feature a main cover by Ken Lashley and a variant cover by Cully Hamner.
Batman Secret Files: The Signal #1: The Signal comes back as Gotham City’s daytime protector after his time with the Outsiders. But during his sabbatical from his hometown, everything about the city and the people closest to him changed. And the mystery of the White Market, a deadly source of weapons being trafficked into Gotham City that even Batman can’t track down, will only push the Signal further away from everything he knows and into a brand-new world of danger.
The second title focuses on Huntress. The issue will be written by Mariko Tamaki with writer/artist David Lapham on the issue as well. Like the Signal issue, there will be two covers; the main cover by Irvin Rodriguez and a card stock variant by Riccardo Federici.
Batman Secret Files: Huntress #1: Huntress has been through a LOT lately…including her brain being invaded by a violent parasite bent on sending her on a deadly slugfest. If that wasn’t enough, now she has to deal with enhanced abilities too, thanks to a villain by the name of Vile. This parasite has given her the ability to see through the eyes of his victims and this is not her idea of a good time! Huntress isn’t one to be played with, and she’s on the hunt for Vile, with a crossbow bolt with his name on it!
The issue featuring Signal will be releasing on July 6, with the Huntress issue hitting stores on July 27. Stay tuned to the Batman Universe as we will be reviewing the series and reporting any news regarding the series.
