DC Black Label Announces ‘Batman: One Dark Knight’ Written And Illustrated By Jock

by Olly MacNamee

Artist Jock returns to his beloved Batman again this December with the new DC Black Label title, Batman: One Dark Knight which he will both write and illustrate.

Here’s what you need to know about this new three-issue Prestige Format series:

“When a simple GCPD escort goes sideways, Batman finds himself on the wrong end of Gotham City in the middle of a heat wave with a super-villain in tow. Follow Batman as he traverses block by block across a pitch dark Gotham City while dragging a highly difficult E.M.P. to his permanent home at Blackgate Prison. The dark corners of Gotham City contain many surprises…and E.M.P. plans to deliver many more shocks before the night is through!”

And here’s Jock’s take on his new gig as writer/illustrator:

“I think most readers know how much I love drawing Batman, so I was thrilled by the prospect of marrying the visual take with my own storyline for Batman: One Dark Knight. I wanted to tell a propulsive, tight action tale, set over one typical night in Gotham City; except when a blackout strikes it’s a night that goes very, very wrong for Batman. I can’t wait to share more with everyone soon!”

Batman: One Dark Knight #1 is out on Tuesday December 7, 2021

Now, let’s take a first look at some of the artwork:
