Thanks to USA Today, we finally get a deeper look at Arkham Manor #1 from DC Comics and writer Gerry Duggan (Shawn Crystal is the artist) just before it’s released on Wednesday. Besides some beautiful preview pages, Duggan describes his excitement working on a Bat-book.
"We're having a lot of fun not just playing with some of the old toys in the Bat toy box but making some new ones to leave behind," Duggan says. "And boy, I am getting away with murder — no pun intended."
The new series picks up after the events of Batman Eternal and Manor provides a quick refresher to catch up readers. Arkham Asylum is in shambles so where else would you house the criminally insane temporarily but at Wayne Manor of course. Here's the official synopsis:
When catastrophe strikes Arkham Asylum, where will Gotham City house the world’s most dangerous criminals, and when inmates are found murdered, what is Batman prepared to do in search of justice? Arkham’s madness comes home in ARKHAM MANOR! A bold new series brought to you by the mad minds of Gerry Duggan (Deadpool, Nova) and Shawn Crystal (Deadpool, Wolverine and the X-Men).
