Seems DC has a lot of things brewing out there for those of you that don’t have a local comic shop to frequent or don’t want to try and bother with all of the continuity issues with their comics. They’re launching an all new all-digital series Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight.
Today, we’re excited to reveal that the first chapter from LEGENDS OF THE DARK KNIGHT will be released tomorrow, followed by new chapters out every Thursday. Taking place outside of DC COMICS – THE NEW 52 continuity, the new series features several stand-alone stories by various creators that chronicle different cases handled by The Dark Knight.
Kicking off the first chapter is the all-star line-up of LOST scribe Damon Lindelof with artwork by the critically acclaimed Jeff Lemire. The line-up for the first six chapters of LEGENDS OF THE DARK KNIGHT is as follows:
June 7 – “The Butler Did It” written by Damon Lindelof with artwork by Jeff Lemire
June 14 – “All of the Above” written by Jonathan Larsen with artwork by JG Jones
June 21– “The Crime Never Committed” written by Tom Taylor with artwork by Nicola Scott and Wayne Faucher
June 28 – “Crisis of Identity” Part 1 written by B. Clay Moore with artwork by Ben Templesmith
July 5 – “Crisis of Identity” Part 2 written by B. Clay Moore with artwork by Ben Templesmith
July 12 – “Crisis of Identity” Part 3 written by B. Clay Moore with artwork by Ben Templesmith
Mark your calendars – Thursdays are officially all about The Dark Knight and you can get your weekly fill here for $.99 each.
The series will be available digital only for now, but with two of their other digital series Batman: Arkham Unhinged and Batman Beyond Unlimited living on in print form after their digital run, we can probably expect to see this happening too.
