A lot of good stuff coming out today.
This afternoon it was announced that Batman: Earth One is set to be released on May 8th 2012.
This graphic novel is brought to fans by Geoff Johns and artist Gary Frank, who had a successful run with SUPERMAN:BRAINIAC, SUPERMAN & THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES and SUPERMAN: SECRET ORIGIN.
Like Superman: Earth One, this Batman story is a fresh and completely continuity free tale. Johns has said (regarding this story) that the emphasis is on a young and extremely inexperienced Batman.
I am sure there will be twists and new takes on the Batman lore but regardless, Gary Frank is one of the best artists in the business, so its worth my money right there.
So yeah, there you go.
