My First Batman
BATMAN: OFF-WORLD Announcement
I’ve mentioned here a few times that I’ve been working on a lot of new projects since my Marvel exclusive ended. It’s probably not a complete shock that one of them would wind up being a Batman book. Seemed the right way to finally make my proper debut as a DC writer.
Though this is a different sort of Batman story. One that sees a young Dark Knight undertaking his very first trip into space. A journey that’s inspired by some of the DC books that made me a comics fan as a kid, and ultimately set the course for the rest of my life.
Here’s the quote I gave to IGN for the announcement:
I fell in love with comics because of DC. The first books my young, beardless self ever plucked from a grocery store spinner rack were the New Teen Titans and World's Finest and Batman. Books that opened the door to a universe of stories that would quite literally change the course of my life. So it is with great honor and excitement that at long last I get to make my proper debut as a DC writer, with a Batman story that takes a young Dark Knight on his own first journey into the far, wondrous reaches of the DC cosmos.
BATMAN: OFF-WORLD is drawn by the legendary Doug Mahnke, who I’ve wanted to work with for years now, along with inker Jamie Mendoza.
Right here you’ll find the IGN story, featuring more info and a look at the some of the variant covers.
BATMAN: OFF-WORLD #1 will be coming your way November 21.
And I’ll be over here working on even more of those new projects.
