Scott Snyder’s Tales from the Dark Multiverse: Knightfall to Introduce Bane’s Son against Saint Batman
DC Comics will be releasing a new batch of “retellings” of some of their classic stories called Tales from the Dark Multiverse and Justice League writer Scott Snyder will be revisiting the classic story “Knightfall” in Tales from the Dark Multiverse: Knightfall.
Here’s the announcement/ press release from DC Comics:
Co-written by Scott Snyder (DARK NIGHTS: METAL, JUSTICE LEAGUE, THE BATMAN WHO LAUGHS) and Kyle Higgins (DEATHSTROKE, BATMAN ETERNAL, NIGHTWING: THE NEW ORDER), with art by Javier Fernandez (JUSTICE LEAGUE) and a cover by Lee Weeks (BATMAN), this one-shot takes place in a Gotham City 30 years after a broken Bruce Wayne failed to take back the mantle of the Bat. In his place arose Jean-Paul Valley, also known as Saint Batman. Under his iron rule, Saint Batman has turned Gotham into the city of his dreams – killing has become commonplace and criminals live in constant fear—all in the name of justice.
But just when all seems lost, a new hope for Gotham rises: The Son of Bane.
This should be interesting, especially since we’re all hungry for new/ old stuff, the same stuff Snyder gave us back when he wrote Dark Nights: Metal which also introduced readers to the Dark Multiverse where we got some interesting characters like Red Death and more important, the Batman who Laughs.
Check out the concept art for Azrael who will be going under the alias Saint Batman in this story below:
ales from the Dark Multiverse: Batman: Knightfall‘s will retail for $5.99 and run 48-pages. The comic will be available October 16.
