Get ready to turn back the clock on August 10, to a time when Tim Burton’s Batman ruled the multiplex and helped usher in a new era of greatness for the Dark Knight.
Batman ’89 by the screenwriter of Batman and Batman Returns, Sam Hamm, and artist Joe Quinones will follow up on a number of threads left dangling by Burton in the new six issue miniseries.
According to DC Comics, the story begins in Gotham City as it “… is being torn in two as citizens dressed as Batman and The Joker duke it out in the streets! As D.A. Harvey Dent tries to keep the city together, he targets the one problem tearing it apart: BATMAN! And he’ll get Bruce Wayne’s help in taking down the Dark Knight!”
Check out the first page preview, the covers to issues one and two by Quinones, and a variant cover by Jerry Ordway for the first issue below. To see more comic shop specific variants and artwork, go to DC Comics website right here.
