It’s not often these days a comic book by DC Comics has to go back to the printers, but that’s the case for Batman #78, by writer Tom King, pencillers Tony S. Daniel and Mikel Janin, inker Norm Rapmund, letterer Clayton Cowles, and colorists Jordie Bellaire and Tomeu Morey. Although, to be fair, the previous issue in this current grand finale run by King sold out too (issues #75, #76, and #77).
Featuring stunning art by Clay Mann, issue #78 spotlights Batman and Catwoman, reunited for the first time since issue #50 and the ill-fated wedding of Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle. After Batman endures brutal punishment from both Bane and Thomas Wayne, a.k.a. Flashpoint Batman, Selina Kyle returns—determined to whip the Dark Knight back into shape, help him heal from his injuries, and take Gotham City back from Bane’s brutal regime.
This second printing will be in stores October 2nd, with the next issue of Batman out next Wednesday, the 18th of September from DC Comics.
