Jock is one of those artists who consistently blow my mind. His covers are legendary, his storytelling is flawless, and he keeps knocking out hit, after hit, after hit. Batman: Black Mirror, Green Arrow: Year One, The Batman Who Laughs… need I say more? Now the already renowned artists will be writing his very own tale too, in the newly announced Batman: One Dark Knight.
Here’s the full story, direct from DC Entertainment:
Batman: One Dark Knight
Iconic Writer and Artist JOCK
delivers action-packed brawl
through Gotham City
The Mini-Series Will be Available in Comic Book Shops
and Digitally Starting on December 7, 2021
This December, three time New York Times best-selling artist Jock (The Batman Who Laughs, Batman: The Black Mirror) brings his signature style to the blacked-out streets of Gotham City in Batman: One Dark Knight, a three issue, prestige format mini-series from DC Black Label. Written and drawn by innovative artist Jock, the mini-series will debut in print and on participating digital platforms on Tuesday December 7, 2021.
“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,” said Jock. “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!’
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!
