DC announces Jock’s ‘Batman: One Dark Knight’ #1 for December

‘Batman: One Dark Knight’ #1 will fall under the DC Black Label line.

Today, DC Comics has announced a new three-issue series from Jock called Batman: One Dark Knight. The mini-series will be printed in the prestige format and will debut in comic book shops Tuesday, December 7, 2021. Each issue will be 48-pages long with a retail price of $6.99.

“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!
