Step Back In To Tim Burton’s Gotham City With New BATMAN ’89 Comic Preview

DC Comics has released new preview pages and variant cover art for issue #1 of Sam Hamm and Joe Quinones BATMAN ’89.



Batman '89 (DC Comics)

DC Comics, screenwriter Samm Hamm and artist Joe Quinones are gearing up for the debut of their new Batman ’89 series in August. Taking the reader back in to the world of director Tim Burton’s 1989 film, DC will pull on a number of threads left dangling by the prolific director.

When the new six-issue comic book run launches next month, Gotham City is being torn in two as citizens dressed as Batman and The Joker duke it out in the streets! As D.A. Harvey Dent tries to keep the city together, he targets the one problem tearing it apart: BATMAN! And he’ll get Bruce Wayne’s help in taking down the Dark Knight!

In this first look preview, all the classic elements of Burton’s Batman are on full display. Take a look at the latest preview pages in the gallery below:

We’ve also got a new look at variant cover art for the series including covers by Jerry Ordway (open to order) and Quinones (1:25). Several comic shops will also be offering either a Batman ‘89 #1 team variant by Ken Taylor & Taurin Clarke, or their own shop-specific cover alongside the standard Batman ‘89 covers and variants.
