Preview: Batman #51


Writer: Scott Snyder

Penciller: Greg Capullo

With the upcoming universe-altering Rebirth on the horizon, this week will see the last issue of Batman on which this dynamic duo will collaborate together. From here on out, Capullo will begin work with Mark Millar on a super secret project lasting six issues, while Snyder will move on to All-Star Batman. The guys have teased a reunion somewhere in the future, but which project, they have kept under wraps.

I’m surprised by how sad I am about this. The Snyder/Capullo run on the New 52 Batman has been outstanding thus far and will likely be remembered as landmark Batman stories onwards.

Regardless, the preview for Batman #51 is out for you to peruse (via Nerdist) and hits shelves this Wednesday, April 27th. The issue is looking to be a dialogue-heavy and very bittersweet as we bid farewell to Snyder and Capullo’s Batman.
