DC Comics has informed retailers that Batman #70, written by Tom King with art by MIke Janin, has been resolicited with a new cover and a new description. The original cover by Janin saw Thomas Wayne dragging Bruce Wayne through the desert. The original solicit text highlighted Thomas Wayne as the Flashpoint Batman.
“The Fall and the Fallen” begins! This is the one you’ve been waiting for! Now that Batman has escaped the “Knightmares,” he’s starting to see the forces rallying against him—and that his father from another universe has joined the other side. The Caped Crusader finally digs into the mystery of how Thomas Wayne, a.k.a. the Flashpoint Batman, escaped the collapse of his dimension and ended up in this part of the Multiverse. Get all the answers in this new five-part story paving the way for the next big BATMAN event!
Batman #70 now features a cover by Andy Kubert of Batman tied up in Arkham Asylum. The solicit text doesn’t have any mention of Thomas Wayne and instead will see Batman trapped in Arkham Asylum.
In chapter one of “The Fall and the Fallen,” Batman escapes his Knightmares only to wind up in a whole other bad dream. He’s locked in Arkham Asylum with his worst enemies, and the only way to get out is to fight them all. It’s a gladiatorial game of madness and mayhem, all for the amusement of Bane!
Jorge Fornes will assist Mikel Janin on art duties on the issue. And seeing how Batman #70 is set to release May 1, he better hop to it.
