DC Comics have offered up a first look at interior art pages from the debut issue of Man-Bat by writer Dave Wielgosz and artist Sumit Kumar, coming next month from DC Comics.
“In the battle between man and monster…the monster’s winning! Man-Bat, a five-issue series starring the long-running Batman antagonist, debuts in February from the creative team of writer Dave Wielgosz and artist Sumit Kumar!
For years Kirk Langstrom has struggled with his monstrous alter ego Man-Bat and the serum that transformed him. But he’s finally hit rock bottom following a devastating setback, and he’s going to take out his anger on every single citizen of Gotham City. Will the combined might of Batman and the GCPD be enough to stop Langstrom once and for all? Or will this just be the start of Man-Bat’s devastation?”
We’ve also learnt that Task Force X, better known as the Suicide Squad, come looking of Kirk Langstrom’s alter-ego in the second issue too: “To undo the damage he has caused, Man-Bat must seek a cure for the innocents he has injured, all while staying out of the deadly sights of the world’s most dangerous mercenaries!”
Man-Bat #1, is out Tuesday February 2nd with a main cover by Kyle Hotz and Alejandro Sánchez and a variant cover by Kevin Nowlan.
