Batman: The Knight (Comic Set #1-10)
Everyone knows the story of why Bruce Wayne became Batman, the sad tale of that one dark night in Crime Alley that left him an orphan on a mission to declare war against criminals. We also know that, as a young man, he went on a lengthy and trial-filled journey to become the crimefighter he ultimately wanted to be, a journey that he took him around the world, where he met new friends, new foes, and challenges he'd never dreamed of. But despite knowing that's a key part of Batman's background, we've never seen that journey get its own in-depth examination. Batman: The Knight is here to change. Written by CHIP ZDARSKY and complimented by artist CARMINE DI GIANDOMENICO, the new DC Comics miniseries will explore Batman's origins after the death of his parents and the angry declaration of his life's mission, at a time when he's just setting out to learn all the skills he'll need to be Gotham's Caped Crusader.
