"Gotham's" Azrael Will Be 'Different Than Anything We've Seen in Comics,' Says EP
If you think Superman’s got some ground to cover, wait’ll you see how far Bruce Wayne has to go to get home. DC’s The Source blog reveals that October will bring Bruce Wayne: The Road Home, eight one-shots that will cover how Batman’s “protégés, allies and foes” react to his return.
“Bruce Wayne’s journey back home has been a long and dangerous road, but before he can assume the mantle of the Bat again, he must first figure out how things have changed in the world around him, how relationships have changed…and how those changes will effect his decisions moving forward as the protector of Gotham City,” said Batman Group Editor Mike Marts.
Although specific titles weren’t mentioned, the post did list the eight writers who are involved — Adam Beechen, Fabian Nicieza, Mike Barr, Pere Perez, Ramon Bachs, Marc Andreyko, Cliff Richards and Bryan Q. Miller — as well as some of the characters, including Dick Grayson, Damian, Birds of Prey, Red Robin and Commissioner Gordon. Each comic will feature a connecting cover by artist Shane Davis.
