DC has announced a new, monthly anthology title focused on Batman and all his Gotham City friends.
The first six issues will include a story by Chip Zdarsky and Eddy Barrows, featuring a team-up between Batman and the Red Hood.
“… this has been a ton of fun to work on,” Zdarsky said in his email newsletter. “I’m not going to lie, growing up on the comics, TV shows and movies, it was like Batman raised me. Like he was a father to me and I was simply another one of his Robins, trained to fight in daddy’s war.”
Writer Matthew Rosenberg and artist Ryan Benjamin, the team behind Future State: Grifters, will have a Grifter story, while upcoming Harley Quinn writer Stephanie Phillips teams up Laura Braga for a story featuring Harley and Poison Ivy.
Finally, the first issue also kicks off a three-parter featuring Outsiders members Black Lightning, Katana and Metamorpho, by Brandon Thomas with art by Max Dunbar.
Batman: Urban Legends will be a $7.99 prestige format series, with the first issue debuting on March 16.
