We had a feeling that we hadn’t quite seen the end of Paul Dano’s Edward Nashton just yet. Now our theories have been proven correct with the announcement of a new Black Label series from DC Comics.
For many film and comic book fans, Paul Dano’s portrayal of The Riddler in Matt Reeves’ The Batman (in theatres now) was arguably one of the most chilling and terrifying incarnations ever seen in a Batman film. This October, fans will have the opportunity to learn more about The Riddler’s origins in Riddler: Year One, a six-issue bimonthly DC Black Label series, written by The Batman actor Paul Dano, with art by acclaimed European illustrator Stevan Subic, making his DC debut.
This series explores the background of how accountant Edward Nashton went from a simple Gotham City nobody to becoming Batman’s nemesis, setting them on a collision course in the blockbuster feature film.
Riddler: Year One will launch in stores and on digital platforms in October 2022.
