Longtime Batman foe and current member of Justice League Dark Man-Bat is getting his own five issue miniseries from DC Comics starting next month.
According to DC; “For years Kirk Langstrom has struggled with his monstrous alter ego Man-Bat and the serum that transformed him. But he’s finally hit rock bottom following a devastating setback, and he’s going to take out his anger on every single citizen of Gotham City. Will the combined might of Batman and the GCPD be enough to stop Langstrom once and for all? Or will this just be the start of Man-Bat’s devastation?”
DC Comics has released some of the interior art for the upcoming Man-Bat #1 from the creative team of writer Dave Wielgosz and artist Sumit Kumar.
DC Comics also says that the stakes are going to get bigger for Kirk in the following issues. Man-Bat is on the run from the law following a horrific night of blood and mayhem on the streets of Gotham City. But the police aren’t what Kirk Langstrom’s monstrous alter ego should worry about… it’s Task Force X, better known as the Suicide Squad! To undo the damage he has caused, Man-Bat must seek a cure for the innocents he has injured, all while staying out of the deadly sights of the world’s most dangerous mercenaries!
Man-Bat#1, written by Dave Wielgosz with art by Sumit Kumar, Romulo Fajardo Jr. and Tom Napolitano, arrives in stores on February 2 with a main cover by Kyle Hotz & Alejandro Sánchez and a variant cover by Kevin Nowlan.
