BATMAN #70 gets a new story by DC Comics

Batman (DC Comics)

It’s been uncovered that the 70th issue of DC Comics Batman series has undergone a bit of an overhaul.

The initial solicitation for the May issue of the series touted a story featuring the alternate universe Batman, Thomas Wayne. The striking cover art for the issue showed Bruce’s father dragging his son across the desert.

Now PreviewsWorld has released new cover art and a new synopsis which brings the issue in line with the on going story arc in Batman comics. Check out the updated artwork and details below!


  • written by TOM KING
  • art and cover by MIKEL JANIN
  • variant cover by LEINIL YU
  • In chapter one of “The Fall and the Fallen,” Batman escapes his Knightmares only to wind up in a whole other bad dream. He’s locked in Arkham Asylum with his worst enemies, and the only way to get out is to fight them all. It’s a gladiatorial game of madness and mayhem, all for the amusement of Bane!
