Geoff Johns and Gary Frank team up for 'Batman: Earth One' Vol. 3

After stirring up the imaginations of Bat-fans the world over with his critically acclaimed DC Black Label series, Batman: Three Jokers, Geoff Johns is returning to his first series of standalone Batman graphic novels, Batman: Earth One. In June 2021, Johns will once again join with artist Gary Frank for the third volume of DC’s New York Times bestselling Batman: Earth One series of graphic novels, as a mysteriously well-armed gang of thieves thrusts Gotham City into a state of fear. The criminals are highly organized and locked and loaded with the latest in military-grade weapons: flame-throwers, grenade-launchers and even tanks.

And this gang claims it is funded by none other than former district attorney Harvey Dent. But Harvey Dent is dead…isn’t he?

Balancing his two lives, Bruce Wayne must find the truth with the help of his growing network of agents, including Alfred, Jim Gordon, Waylon “Killer Croc” Jones, and the savvy new Catwoman. However, Bruce finds himself distracted by the seemingly impossible return of another figure believed dead—his grandfather, Adrian Arkham. He must also comfort his longtime friend, Gotham City Mayor Jessica Dent, who is scarred both physically and mentally from her experience with the Riddler which resulted in the gruesome death of her brother.

But Harvey seems to be back, plotting revenge on a city he proclaims to be guilty. And when Batman discovers the truth to these many mysteries, his entire world starts to unravel…

Johns and Frank first introduced their Earth One take on the Dark Knight back in 2013, with a critically acclaimed graphic novel that presented a Bruce early in his life as the Dark Knight. Younger and rougher than the Batman fans may have been accustomed to, the revision’s influence was immediately felt in shows likeGotham and movies such as the upcoming The Batman. Set firmly outside of continuity, the Batman: Earth One series offers a universe without restraint. Anything can happen…and frequently does.

Batman: Earth One Vol. 3 will be published by DC on June 8, 2021, and is written by Geoff Johns (Doomsday Clock, Batman: Three Jokers) with art by Gary Frank (Doomsday ClockSuperman: Secret Origin), Jon Sibal and Brad Anderson. Batman: Earth One is just one entry DC’s Earth One line of graphic novels, which provide a fresh take on some of DC’s most iconic heroes. Other books in the series include Superman: Earth One from J. Michael Straczynski, Shane Davis and Adrian Syaf and Wonder Woman: Earth One from Grant Morrison, Yanick Paquette and Nathan Fairbairn. DC’s most recent Earth One graphic novel was Green Lantern: Earth One Vol. 2 by Corinna Bechko and Gabriel Hardman.
