Die „The Authority“ Macher Warren Ellis und Bryan Hitch scheinen eine kleine Reunion zu planen und zwar für DC Comics. Die Comicveteranen werden eine 12-teilige Maxi-Serie zu Gothams Fledermaus abliefern, mit dem Titel „The Batman’s Grave“.

Die erste Ausgabe soll bereits Anfang Oktober für den US-Markt erscheinen, wobei es im Comic selbst um „Leben, Tod und die Fragen geht, die man sich nie traut zu stellen“ gehen soll.

Als Inker für Hitchs Artwork wurde derweil Kevin Nowlan rekrutiert, der dessen Zeichnungen bereits für „Hawkman: Found“ bearbeitete.

Der Verlag beschreibt den neuen Comic wie folgt:

The team that brought us The Authority now turn their talents towards The World’s Greatest Detective, whose current case forces him to inhabit the mind of a murder victim with a half-eaten face—without filling the empty grave next to those of his parents.

But first, Ellis and Hitch get into the mind of a butler. Once a week, rain or shine, Alfred Pennyworth walks to a little cemetery plot in the Wayne Manor grounds. He meticulously tends to Thomas and Martha’s headstones, plinths and slabs: weeding, cleaning, polishing. But how much longer before there’s another Wayne memorial to tend to?

Within this dynamic duo’s new comic lives a Batman with an almost psychotic identification with murder victims. He immerses himself in their lives and obsesses over every detail of their deaths. Even as Batman would process the evidence and approach the perpetrator from one side, he would live inside the life of the victim as they approached their death. The team that brought us The Authority now turn their talents towards The World’s Greatest Detective, whose current case forces him to inhabit the mind of a murder victim with a half-eaten face—without filling the empty grave next to those of his parents.
