Event Leviathan has arguably been one of DC Comics best event series of the past decade. Masterminded by Brian Michael Bendis the mini-series brought the DC Universe (and many of its heroes) to its knees. But now it seems the publisher isn’t quite done with this storyline yet.
Bendis, along with artist Alex Maleev is returning to Leviathan for a new six-part miniseries called Event Leviathan: Checkmate and we’ve got all the details you need to know in the press release below!
Event Leviathan: Checkmate Emerges From the Shadowy Corners of the DC Universe
New Six issue Miniseries from Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev Gathers an Unlikely Group of Allies Together to Take the World Back from Leviathan this April
The results of the Event Leviathan miniseries established a new world order among the espionage agencies of the DC Universe, now united under the single banner of the mysterious Leviathan!
Leviathan has agents and acolytes all over the world, but what exactly are they following? What’s the secret behind Leviathan’s power? The planet’s last, best hope against this rampant threat is an unlikely collection of allies that will form the new Checkmate! The most dangerous spies in all of DC must team up to take the world back from Leviathan before all is lost.
Green Arrow, The Question, Lois Lane and Talia Al Ghul are the last line of defense against Leviathan, but there’s a secret hero working from the shadows that could mean the difference between victory or defeat for this new version of Checkmate. Who is it? Find out when the debut issue of Event Leviathan: Checkmate hits comic book retailers and participating digital stores on Wednesday, April 22, 2020.
